The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad has further directed the University to collate the information on how many students are seeking early declaration of results on account of pursuing graduate programmes at foreign universities. The order has come in an application moved by a student of Campus Law Centre, Delhi University, seeking early declaration of her LL.B. results in order to secure her LL.M seat at the University of Cambridge. The acting Dean of Exams informed the court today the University is willing to offer ‘comfort letters’ to all such students who are facing difficulty in securing admissions in foreign universities due to delay in declaration of results. The court was also informed by Senior Advocate BB Gupta, who’s also a member of the court constituted the Grievance Redressal Committee, that results can be declared on priority basis in a confidential manner for students who are seeking admissions abroad. Mr Gupta also informed the court that there’s some confusion regarding the evaluation system of the University. There’s a lack of clarity as to whether the University follows a cumulative system of grade evaluation or the comparative system. The court was of the opinion that if the University doesn’t follow the comparative grading system for evaluating undergraduate courses, then there should be no reason for denying priority results in a confidential manner for students seeking admissions abroad. Senior Advocate Saurav Datta, who appeared for the Delhi University, also suggested that the University shall identify the number of students who are seeking priority declaration of results, and the streams these students belong to, so that the courses having maximum number of students seeking comfort letters can get priority for declaration of results. In light of these submissions, the court directed the Dean of Exams to collate information on the total number of students seeking comfort letters, and the courses they are enrolled in, and submit a status report before the next date of hearing. The court will next take up this matter on September 11.  Next Storylast_img
