The University Grants Commission (UGC) has instructed universities to set their UG admission deadlines for undergraduate programmes following the release of CBSE Class 12 results, according to Chairman Jagadesh Kumar on July 13.
Noting that some colleges have begun the admission process even though the CBSE has yet to release the Class 12 results, Mr. Kumar stated that CBSE students will be denied admission if the final date is set by the institutions prior to the board’s results announcement.
He also said that “UGC has requested all the higher educational institutions to fix the last date of their undergraduate admission process after the declaration of the result of Class 12 by CBSE so as to provide sufficient time to such students for admission in undergraduate courses.”
The decision comes after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) asked the commission last week to encourage institutions to adjust their admission schedules in accordance with their results.
“It has come to our notice that some universities have started registration in undergraduate courses for the session 2022-23. “In this scenario, the students of CBSE will be deprived of admission if the last date is fixed by the universities prior to CBSE results declaration,” the UGC said in a letter to vice-chancellors.
It also added, “It is, therefore, requested that all higher education institutions fix the last date of admission to undergraduate courses after the declaration of CBSE results to provide sufficient time to such candidates.”
The CBSE is expected to release board test results by the end of the month. This year’s board test schedule was pushed back because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
