New Delhi: The Delhi University (DU) on Friday told the Delhi High Court (HC) that its officials are looking for possible alternatives to address the issue of early results for the students who have got admission in foreign universities for higher studies.
The DU counsel said till now there are eight students of postgraduate (PG) and 180 students of undergraduate (UG) courses who have asked for comfort letters to be submitted to foreign universities for admission.
Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad gave time to the university to take a decision on it and deferred the hearing to September 14.
Advocate Mohinder Rupal, Delhi University representative, said the university officials together are trying their best to come up with the best way to address the anxiety of final year UG students who have applied to foreign universities for admission so that the comfort letters are worded properly and the aspect of the date of declaration of the results is also dealt with.
The DU further said, the students of PG courses, who have asked for comfort letters to be sent to foreign universities for admission, can be prioritised for declaring their confidential results.
The high court said, “The aspect of the Cumulative Grade Point Average viz-a-viz Comparative Grade Point Average for assessing the results of the UG final year students is still not clear from the affidavit of the Delhi University. Appropriate light shall be thrown on this issue on the next date of hearing,” reported India TV.
The HC was hearing issues students, who are moving abroad for higher education, are facing. The issue highlighted during the hearing of a plea about open-book examination (OBE) for UG final year students of DU.
