Plea Seeking Extension Got Dismissed by Delhi HC
Delhi High Court has dismissed the plea seeking an extension of DU college admission deadlines in today’s hearing. This means that DU Cut Off dates is expected to release soon. The expected cut off would release soon on the official site of Delhi University at du.ac.in. The detailed schedule will have the cut-off dates for undergraduate, postgraduate, and Ph.D. level courses along with document verification dates. This year as per DU official, students must not expect many dips in the cut-offs. Executive Council member Rajesh Jha said that the cut-offs for top colleges were unlikely to be affected. This, in turn, may adversely affect the students, especially those who have missed more than two papers.
Meanwhile, Delhi University has also informed the High Court in today’s hearing that DU OBE Result 2020 cannot be released before October end due to a shortage of resources as well as manpower. However, the court has asked the University to inform it on the next date of hearing about the percentage of answer sheets evaluated and the status of integration of the answer sheets, which were sent by students both via email and the Open Book Exam portal, before adjourning the matter.
