DU Admission 2019 update: Giving relief to students, Delhi University has extended admission under first list for a few state boards.
The varsity has extended the admissions under the first cut off list by a day for students whose admissions had been held up due to various grievances.
While the last day for admission under the first cut off list was earlier scheduled to be July 1, 2019 (yesterday), several students had complained about a lack of co-ordination between their respective state boards and central board (apart from CBSE) such as CISCE and the Delhi University. According to reports, the most pressing issues had been faced by the students especially for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State Boards is the conversion of grade point average to percentage.
The formula for conversion of subject wise grade point given by Andhra Pradesh was multiplying the grade point by 10, reports.
This apart, the candidates who had obtained marks ranging from 91 to 100 would have a grade point average of 10. It that would be converted to 100. According to the set of guidelines released by the university on Saturday, the average grade point of 10 was to be taken as 95 for both AP and Telangana State Boards, as it is the midpoint of the mark range.
Meanwhile, the Andhra Pradesh government later released the marks of the students. The government also wrote to the university urging that the admissions of the students be made on the basis of the marks. The DU official then confirmed that the admission of the AP Board students will be revisited as per the request of their state government.
According the latest updates, Over 2,750 admissions were done on the first day of admissions on Friday.
Hindu College has seen around 750 admissions till now. Lady Shri Ram and Miranda House have completed 800 admissions each.
