The Delhi University has released a rather joyful news for all its aspirants who did not study from CBSE affiliated schools. The university standing committee has decided not to deduct 1 per cent to 2.5 per cent marks from the aggregate score of applicants, who have studied same subjects but with the different nomenclature from other 32 state boards across the country.
This was done to maintain the equality among all the board in the country. With this new system, hundreds of students from various state boards will get benefited. Various subjects of other boards are same as CBSE but due to the different nomenclature, they were counted as vocational subject and students had to face a deduction in marks assessment during DU admissions without their fault. Hence, this new system will eradicate all such loopholes.
After this, almost 20 per cent of students coming from the different boards will get the benefit because of the new guidelines. Under the new guidelines of UGC to enhance the 10 per cent seats under the EWS quota, the varsity will also add around 6000 seats and later in the next academic year the administration will further add 9000 seats in DU.
