The Class XII examination answer sheets submitted for re-evaluation to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) could have a huge impact on the admission process in the Delhi University.
The bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar at Delhi High Court said that there can be a huge impact on the merit list after the re-evaluation of the answer sheets. Therefore, they advised the colleges and students to keep an eye on the re-evaluation of marks and on the writ petition.
After the CBSE restricted the scrutiny of marks to 12 subjects, advocate Sandeep Baja, representing four students, filed a plea against the board’s decision. Last week, the court removed all these conditions imposed on the students wishing a re-evaluation of their answer sheets.
About 2.47% of the 11 lakh students, who appeared for the Class 12 exams, have applied for re-evaluation.
According to the officials at the Delhi University, students who have already got a seat in the college don’t have to worry about anything. The Chairperson of the Admissions Committee, MK Pandit, said that once the seat is given and the admission fee is paid, admission cannot be canceled even if the marks are decreased after the evaluation. Only during the case of fabricated certificates is the admission canceled.
If the marks of the students are increased after the re-evaluation process, there are many provisions in the admission guidelines of the university that will help the students accommodate. He added that on the basis of the availability of seats, students who qualify the cut-off list but could not take admission before can apply for admission on the last day under the following cut-off list. He said that all the principals of the college and students have already been clarified regarding the issue.
