Tricky road to college admission? Students await final decisions

The pandemic has led to a cancellation of 12 board exams and many such standardised tests that used to be essential for college admissions. Colleges are now faced with the task of creating a new criteria upon which to judge the applicants’ competence. Here’s what is known so far:

Delhi University

DU is likely to start the registration process for admissions by July 15, according to media reports. On CBSE and CISCE’s marking scheme, Rajeev Gupta, dean of admissions at Delhi University, told the Times of India, “The assessment policy will not affect our admissions because it seems that the Class XII results will be determined in percentage and we use percentages for deciding the admission cutoffs.”

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU)

Students getting admitted to JNU for undergraduate and postgraduate courses have to appear for the JNU Entrance Exam (JNUEE). NU VC Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar had earlier told ANI, “We will conduct the JNU entrance examination whenever it is safe for students to write. If entrance is delayed due to COVID and if admission happens at a later date, we’ll surely adjust our academic calendar to take care of lost time without compromising academic rigor.”
