Shashi Tharoor seeks DU’s review of weightage policy

Congress leader and former minister for HRD minster of state Shashi Tharoor seeks intervention of mark weightage policy for state board seeking admission to its colleges for various undergraduates course. In the wake of student delegation opposing present DU admission procedure they meet Tharoor. "Following our conversation I explained to the students' delegation that the marks-weightage policy applied to students from several states could not be altered. But as the representation explains, there is a problem relating to the interpretation of the rules and different calculations of the weightage differential at different admissions centres. Please have it reviewed so that an injustice is not perpetrated," Tharoor said in an email to the VC last week. "There is no centralised system to monitor the admission process and since multiple admissions are happening, there is no choice to select a particular college since at the same time admission process are completing in different colleges," the representation reads. However, a senior varsity official maintained that “The university has a cosmopolitan nature and the guidelines have been framed as such to provide a level playing field to students from boards across the country. The guidelines have been framed keeping larger interest for students in mind.” Source PTI
