There is a tussle between the St. Stephens College and the university, with the former insisting that it will give 85 percent weightage to CUET scores and 15 percent weightage to interviews in all categories.
St. Stephens College, according to its prospectus, will give 85 per cent weightage to the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) and 15 per cent weightage to the interview.
This comes even as Delhi University has asked the college to conduct admissions on unreserved seats using CUET.
Stephen’s College will adopt CUET as eligibility criteria with 85 per cent weightage for CUET and 15 per cent weightage for shortlisted candidates as the college interviews,” the prospectus for the undergraduate course 2022-23 stated.
The St. Stephens College and the university have been locked in a tussle with the former insisting that it will give 85per cent weightage to CUET scores and 15 per cent on interviews across categories.
It had stated the same thing in its admission notice posted on its website last month.
The Delhi University, however, has said that interviews should only be conducted for reserved category students. It had written to the college stated they will have to follow the Executive Council resolution of conducting admissions to general seats based on the CUET scores.
St Stephen’s College also said that it reserves the right to proceed with admissions according to its own policy guaranteed to it as a minority institution.
The Delhi University has sought legal opinion in the matter.
