UGC has instructed Higher educational institutions to stall the graduate admissions considering the delay in CBSE plus two results. In a letter addressed to various University Vice Chancellors and College Principals, UGC Secretary Rajneesh Jain has instructed that the last dates to accept graduate admissions should be after the CBSE Plus two results are declared.
CBSE had sent a letter to UGC requesting that the institutions should be instructed that the admission process shouldn’t start till the results are out.
All the same, it is said that the CBSE plus two results will be delayed further. In the UGC letter, it is mentioned that the second term evaluation is in progress and the weightage marks from the two terms will require at least a month’s time to publish.
Sources from CBSE say that the results will probably come out by the end of this month or the first week of next month. Last year the CBSE 12th Std exam results came out on July 30th. And the board exam results came on August 3rd.
Most of the states, including Kerala have published the 12th Std exam results. And most State universities and self-governing institutions have already started the admission process. Under the UGC notice, they would have to postpone the final date of admissions.
