DU rejects CBSE request for review of marks deduction decision

June 9, 2014

New Delhi : Delhi University has rejected CBSE request to review its decision to deduct 2.5 per cent from the aggregate marks of those aspirants of the four-year under graduate course who had opted for Informatics Practices as an elective subject in their class XII exams.

A top Delhi University official said it would not be possible to revise guidelines in the middle of the admission process and any review in the matter might be considered next year.

“It will not be possible to review the admission guidelines as we are in the middle of the enrollment process for the under-graduate courses,” the official said.

Taking strong exception to the DU guidelines for admission into undergraduate programme, the Central Board of Secondary Education last week had sought review of the decision and accord same advantage to those who had opted for Informatics Practices.

The CBSE had termed the university decision as “unfair” and “discriminatory”.

In its admission guidelines, the DU has said the students who had chosen Informatics Practices in class XII tend to lose 2.5 per cent from the percentage aggregate marks for admission into FYUP.
