Delhi University has announced that the changes in the CBSE’s evaluation mode would not affect its merit-based admission process for undergraduate courses, which started on June 20 and would continue till August. 

The officials of Delhi University have stated that students will be able to take admission to all courses, irrespective of whether they have appeared in the exam of that particular subject. The university is yet to release the release dates for the cut-off lists.

Earlier, CBSE informed the Supreme Court that it would notConduct the remaining exams for 10th and 12th Board Exams which were to be held between July 1 and July 15.

The board also issued a detailed plan under which the remaining exams for Class 10th and Class 12th would be evaluated based on the average of the top two or three exams students appeared for before the lockdown.

Following the board announcement, students of class 12 were concern about a possible dip in their overall scores due to which would risk students admission in a few colleges/universities which offer admission on merit basis. 

DU’s Dean of Admissions Shobha Bagai in this regard has said that “If we look at the bigger picture now, the CBSE’s changed evaluation process will not affect the merit-based admission process for undergraduate courses much. Generally, the average marks of all subjects are more or less the same. It would have been a problem if they were not marking the subjects for which exams cannot be conducted,”

However, some principals have the opinion that the change in the evaluation process could lead to high cut-offs as over 90% of applications for admission in Delhi University for undergraduate courses come from CBSE students. 

Furthermore, some teachers have mentioned that students who usually focus on one particular subject could score less overall if the exams are not conducted.
