The NSUI urged the university vice-chancellor, PC Joshi to provide a solution for the candidates who do not meet the cent percent requirement through a letter on Saturday.
“The student wing of Congress also appealed to the vice chancellor to consider the tremendous problems faced by students in attending online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic,” reported PTI.
DU released its first cut-off list on Friday with eight prominent colleges asking for 100% marks for admission to some courses.
In a letter addressed to the vice chancellor, NSUI national president Neeraj Kundan said that many students faced immense problems, like the death of their loved ones or the lack of proper facilities such as electronic gadgets and internet, during the pandemic. He urged the VC to come up with a solution for students who did not get a perfect score so that they don't miss the opportunity to fulfil their aspirations.
NSUI has also conveyed this to the Admission Committee (of DU). “NSUI, on behalf of all students, has requested the higher authorities to consider the difficulties faced by students pertaining to different causes and give them a chance to be a part of Delhi University," the student group said.
Top colleges of Delhi University like Shri Ram College of Commerce have demanded cent per cent marks for admission to BA (Hons) Economics and B.Com (Hons). Last year, the college had pegged the cut-off for BA (Hons) Economics at 99% and for B.Com (Hons) at 99.50%. Jesus and Mary College has set the cut-off for BA (Hons) Psychology at 100% for those who do not include the subject while calculating their best of four (BFS) percentage.
Many students who scored above 95% are now pinning their hopes on extracurricular activities and sports quota, anticipating limited chances of scores dropping in subsequent cut-offs or seats remaining vacant, a PTI report said.
Students who did not make it in the first cut off will now have to wait for the second cut off list which is scheduled to be released on October 9. The admission will be through online mode for Delhi University this year as well.
