Those students who are enrolled in schools affiliated to International Baccalaureate (IB) and other international boards will face trouble getting admission in Delhi University (DU) from this year onwards. The results of these universities are due in last week of June or in early July, by the time which the admission in Delhi University will be in midway. This could result into these students losing their seats already in the university.
Schools of international repute like, Amity Global School and GD Goenka World School are affiliated to IB boards and University of Cambridge. The students from these schools have to apply the same way through filling Optical mark registration forms of the DU as other students.
According to Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, the deputy dean of student’s welfare, “Whenever their result is declared, these candidates may be considered in whichever cutoff list their results come under subject to availability of seats in the colleges.” The marks and grades obtained by students of these boards are taken as equivalent with that of Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE).
Students from these boards have to pass the subject in its advanced level, which they are seeking to take as honors subject. The candidates who are willing to take up honors course in Geology and Anthropology would have to pass a science subject at the advanced level apart from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. In similar fashion, those candidates who are willing to take up honors in Physics or Chemistry, would have to pass Mathematics and optional mathematics at ordinary level and at least one subject at the advanced level out of Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics.
