Delhi University on Tuesday clarified that colleges are permitted to consider provisional mark sheets for admissions.

“We have sent a clarification to colleges stating that they can carry out the admission process based on the provisional mark sheet of the aspirants. However, the student is required to submit the original mark sheet within 10 days,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, officer on special duty (admissions), DU.

Prior to the clarification, many students who had reached various colleges for admissions on Tuesday complained that their provisional mark sheets were not being accepted.

“I have not yet received my original mark sheet. I thought the provisional mark sheet would suffice but Hansraj College has rejected my application. I am going to Kirori Mal College (KMC) now to check out if the provisional mark sheet is being accepted there or not,” said Shalja, a student from Bihar.

Vineet Chawla, father of an applicant in Ramjas College said: “We went to our daughter’s school on Monday to get the original mark sheet but the school has not received it yet. The principal provided us with an undertaking affirming the same. However, it was not accepted in the college and we were denied admission.”

Sunil Kumar Singh, admission in-charge at KMC, said: “The admission process has been very smooth in our college. However, there were certain issues regarding the acceptance of provisional mark sheets. Later, we got a clarification stating that we can accept the provisional mark sheets as long as it is certified by the respective schools.”

DU released its first cut-off list on Monday.

Aspirants seeking admission under the first list have till June 21 to complete the admission formalities.
