Delhi University Rejects CBSE Appeal Over Marks Deduction
CBSE’s request to review its decision to deduct 2.5% from the aggregate marks of those contenders who had opted for Informatics Practices as an elective subject in their class XII has been rejected by the Delhi University.
In an official statement released by DU, review on admission guidelines for the academic year 2014-15 is not possible, however, same may be considered next year.
“It may impact many students if changes are made in the middle of the enrollment process,” the official said.
Couple of days back, CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi asked the university Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh to review the decision of deducting marks as most of the students were not aware of the decision taken by the Delhi University.
In his letter, Joshi also mentioned that such a rule did not exist when the students choose the subject and this seems a gross injustice to the students both academically and administratively.
In the admission guidelines for the academic year 2014-15, the DU has officially announced that the students who had selected Informatics Practices in class XII tend to lose 2.5% from the aggregate percentage for taking admission into DU’s FYUP.
