The Delhi University informed the Delhi High Court on September 11 that it is looking at all possible ways to release results of final year undergraduate students who have applied to foreign universities for higher education. The High Court had earlier directed the university to speed up the release of final year results of students who are planning to study abroad.
DU has also told the court that it is looking at plans to declare "confidential results" for these undergraduate students. The university's counsel Mohinder J S Rupal said that as of now, eight postgraduate students and 180 undergraduate students have asked for comfort letters to be sent to foreign universities for admission.
A bench including Justices Subramonium Prasad and Hima Kohli has asked the university to take its final decision by September 14, 2020.
Several discussions are being held with reference to the issuance of results of such undergraduate students. The counsel told that a confidential or tentative result of the students' past performance in five semesters may be shared with the foreign university directly.
The high court pointed out that the aspect of using Cumulative Grade Point Average or Comparative Grade Point Average for results of final year undergraduate students is also not clear in the university's affidavit.
The problem faced by study abroad aspirants came up when the high court was hearing issues concerning open book exam (OBE) for final year undergraduate DU students.
DU had notified that it will release the results by the end of October 2020.
