'DU admissions would be hit by outcome of re-evaluation'
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday said that the ongoing Delhi University admissions would be affected by the outcome of a plea by students seeking re-evaluation of answer sheets of their Class XII examination held this year.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said there was a possibility of change in merit position of the students who had applied for re-evaluation, thus making them eligible for admissions.
"Therefore, as a matter of abundant caution, the students who are seeking admission as well as the colleges need to be kept informed about the pendency of the writ petition and the fact that the process of re-evaluation of marks by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on the request of some of the students is underway. "As a result, the merit position of the students could change substantially," the high court said.
It also said that the admissions effected pursuant to the CBSE examination this year shall be subject to the final outcome of the present writ petition.
