A Delhi University aspirant on Thursday filed a writ petition before the Delhi high court challenging the varsity’s admission guideline to deduct 10 per cent marks from the best of four subjects of candidates from boards with different marking patterns.

Tabassum Ahmed, the petitioner, who has scored 100 per cent marks in best of four subjects, has alleged that he was denied admission as per DU’s provisions of deducting 10 per cent from his total marks as Kerala State Education Board has a different evaluation pattern from that of CBSE. The matter has been listed for Friday.

“As per the system of evaluation followed by St. Stephen’s College my marks were 99.6 per cent, but Hindu College authorities calculated the percentage at 93.3 per cent while according to Hansraj College the percentage was calculated at 92.6 per cent,” the petition reads. “There is no uniform system of admission of Delhi University.” it added.

A student delegation from Kerala has also raised the issue with Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.

Mr Tharoor has written to DU vice-chancellor Dinesh Singh, asking him to review the policy so that an injustice is not perpetrated.
