After the Class 12 board examinations were cancelled on Tuesday, acting vice-chancellor P C Joshi said that Delhi University would adapt its admission process to the unusual situation without compromising on merit, and that the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET) could be a suitable alternative.

Joshi said talks would be held with the university’s admission committee and academic council to finalise the process of admission to undergraduate courses after the CBSE and ICSE announced the cancellation of Class 12 board examinations due to the coronavirus pandemic.

CBSE students make up nearly 98 percent of Delhi University applicants.

“Merit will be judged in some way.” This is an exceptional situation. The Central Universities Common Entrance Test, which is focused on pan-India merit, may be a good option. DU would not make any concessions on the merits. We’ll adapt to the new situation and figure out what tool to use. We’ll have to wait to see what criteria the boards come up with for evaluating students, said PTI. 

“The University of Delhi completely supports the decision taken by the Government of India to cancel the forthcoming CBSE board examinations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic in the region,” said Professor Rajeev Gupta, DU’s Chairperson-Admissions. The University of Delhi also believes that our students’ health and safety are critical. The University of Delhi awaits the CBSE’s decision on the results’ announcement.”

Under normal circumstances, DU administers entrance exams for nine undergraduate courses. The National Research Agency is in charge of the assessments (NTA).

The government announced on Tuesday that the CBSE Class 12 board exams would be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the country, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi claiming that the decision was made in the best interests of students and that the uncertainty felt by students, parents, and teachers must be alleviated.

According to CISCE secretary Gerry Arathoon, the CISCE has agreed to cancel Class 12 board exams this year due to the COVID-19 situation.

CBSE Class 12 students in this city praised the cancellation of their board exams, saying that their lives were more valuable than the test.

Nandini Goel, a Class 12 board examinee at GD Goenka Public School in Lucknow, expressed her delight by saying, “This is fantastic news. Not only am I relieved that exams have been cancelled, but I am also relieved that the virus has not spread further. The majority of students around the country will be pleased, as their mental health is at an all-time low. In recent years, many students have lost loved ones.”

“But now we’re all waiting to see how they’ll grade us and assign grades. While some students are overjoyed that they have already received offers from their preferred colleges, others are concerned about how DU can accept students. Nonetheless, I am satisfied, “Nandini, who was accepted into Christ College in Bengaluru, said this.

“My friends and their parents were relieved by the decision, as they had been concerned about the board’s indecision about the examination. I believe that calculating the grades internally is not the best choice, and that the board should look into other ways for evaluating students, “Abhinav Baranwal, a Study Hall student, agreed.

Sarvesh Goel, chairman of the GD Goenka Public School in Lucknow, said, “We applaud the government’s initiative. This would relieve students of the stress of having to participate in board exams, as well as all those who may have been involved in the examination process. The results will be released soon, allowing students to begin planning for admissions in India and abroad.”

However, the cancellation of the test has not pleased all school principals and administrators. Meenakshi Bahadur, principal of Study Hall, for example, said, “I was dissatisfied. The situation was improving, and the number of Covid-19 cases would have decreased in another month. In June, there was no rush to make the announcement.”

For others, it may have been a blessing in disguise, but the majority of the students had studied thoroughly. However, the cancellation of CBSE Board exams has caused some disappointment and dissatisfaction,” said Lokesh Singh, the school’s manager.
