St. Stephen’s College has published its admission prospectus, noting that 85% of admissions will be based on the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), and 15% in an interview.
“St. Stephen’s College will accept CUET as the eligibility criterion for CUET with 85% weightage and there will be college interviews for selected candidates with 15% weightage,” reads the prospectus of the college’s graduation course 2022-23.
It said the same thing in an admission notice posted on their website last month.
However, Delhi University has opposed the decision, saying it would write to minority colleges to withdraw the prospectus.
“We will write to the college that the action taken by it is wrong and the prospectus should be withdrawn immediately,” DU registrar Bikash Gupta was quoted as saying. PTI.
“If it is not revoked, and you (the college) conduct any admissions, the university will not accept it and they will be considered void and invalid,” he added.
Gupta said DU would also issue a statement advising students to refrain from applying for courses in the college.
The university had earlier written to the college asking them to follow the executive council’s resolution for admission to the general seats based on their CUET scores.
St. Stephen’s College, however, informed the university that it reserves the right to proceed with admissions in accordance with its own policy of ensuring that it is a minority institution.
The University Grants Commission has made CUET scores compulsory for admission in 45 central universities of the country.
