DU ADMISSIONS 2019: Delhi High court has directed Delhi University to stick to the old eligibility criteria for the admissions in the BA Economics (Hons) and B.Com (Hons). The division bench of Delhi High Court has also recommended extending the deadline of the registration for Undergraduate Courses till 22nd June.
- Delhi High Court directed rollback of the Delhi University’s decision of changing eligibility criteria for admissions in BA Economics (Hons) and B.Com (Hons).
- All UG Admissions in 2019-20 will take place according to the last year’s (2018-19) eligibility criteria.
- The deadline for UG Application to be extended to 22nd June
The decision came while hearing the three petitions filed by various student activists challenging Delhi University’s new eligibility criteria for admissions in BA Economics (Hons) and B.Com (Hons).
After this decision, students can apply according to the old (2018-19) criteria. It means Maths is no longer compulsory to be included in “best of four” for admission in BA Eco (Hons) and no requirement of having scored at least or more than 50% marks in Mathematics for admissions in B.Com (Hons).
According to sources, Delhi High court has also said that if Varsity wants to make any changes in the eligibility criteria then it must release an official notice 6 months before any such change.
The extension in the deadline to register for Undergraduate Courses means the DU Cut-Off 2019 schedule will be revised. It will lead to a delay in the entire admission process.
