Delhi University Students Union or DUSU approaches Delhi High Court challenging the University of Delhi decision to consider only 12 class marks for the admission of students from Kerala state board which determines the grades by integrating marks of 11th and 12th standard.

Justice Prateek Jalan has instructed the counsel for DUSU to appease the court on the union’s locus standi in filing this petition on the next date of hearing on 10 November. Though the counsel for the university was not present at the hearing. Accordingly, the court asked the DUSU counsel Ashish Dixit to satisfy the petition copy to him.

And, varsity asserts if state boards announce marks of both class 11 and 12. Then, the merit of students will determine according to combined mark sheets.
