Students unable to update revised marks on portal

Issues with website mar admissions

A steady stream of aspirants lined up at the Delhi University’s Conference Centre on Saturday where the varsity has set up help desks to assist the students.

Among other issues, several aspirants approached university officials with complaints of being unable to update their marks on the DU portal following revaluation by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Shruti Rekhi, an aspirant said, “I had submitted my papers for revaluation under the CBSE, but every time I am trying to update the marks, the DU portal is not accepting the same. My marks have increased and I am eligible for a lot more courses now.”

Ms. Rekhi who has scored 95% and wants to pursue psychology added, “I spent close to two hours at the Conference Centre on Friday as well but there has been no significant progress. I am worried that by the time my issue is resolved all the seats will get filled up.”

‘No concrete answer’

Anjali Bhandari, another aspirant who wants to pursue history from DU said, “I have been waiting at the Conference Centre for the past three hours and have received no concrete answer from the officials. This is not even our fault. Even in the past, the portal has posed problems for students. Who will compensate us if we lose out on securing our seats?”

Volunteers said that other issues faced by aspirants were “minor” ones pertaining to the correction of basic details in their application forms. “Some students have filled in their marks wrong or not selected a course or put in the wrong initials,” said Aakash, a volunteer present at the Conference Centre.

Yagyesh, another volunteer from Kirori Mal College, added, “Many students from SC/ST category have a different name on their caste certificate, than the one that they entered for admissions. This becomes ground for problem at the university level.”
