DU officials are hoping that the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) becomes a reality soon. The admission procedure of the University is already delayed till September due to the late declaration of class 12th results. Thus, it is providing ample time to decide on the fate of CUCET. Delhi University’s acting Vice-Chancellor, P C Joshi says, “The central entrance exams can bring uniformity in the admission process.”
DU looks forward to conducting CUCET:
The Delhi University is positive about the conduction of CUCET. Also, it is going to begin the registration for postgraduate entrance-based admissions from the third week of July. Hence, organizing other exams will not be a matter of problem. Moreover, after the cancellation of class 12th board exams, DU looks forward to entrance-based admissions for its undergraduate courses.
The University of Delhi has sent a proposal to the University Grants Commission (UGC) explaining its agenda. Thus, according to them, 50 percent weightage to the entrance test scores and 50 percent to the class 12th marks can be given. Hence, the admission process of 2021 can include both cutoffs and entrance exams.
The take of the central government on CUCET:
However, the central government is yet to take a final decision on whether to conduct the entrance exams or not. Vice-Chancellor P C Joshi states that the government will decide on this in the next one week or 10 days.
The university is all set to work on intricacies like cut-offs criteria, normalization of class 12th board scores, and more. But, they are yet on hold until the boards 2021 results are out. The officials are not sure if the results will be just by all the different boards. Thus, they will make sure to follow up with a foolproof plan.
