There is a forum of students from Kerala which is known by the name “MAITHRY”. Their members recently met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on complaining about the undergraduate admission process which is in underway. They notified the CM that various colleges such as Hindu College and Ramjas College are necessitating on the need of the Provisional Certificate from the students, in addition to the original 12th mark list which is issued by the Kerala Higher Secondary Education Board.
As informed by the students, the kerala board issues a mark sheet which is contemplated as pass certificate. The Kerala Board doesn’t issue a Provisional Certificate.
Maithry has therefore submitted a grievance regarding this issue to the concerned authorities of Delhi University.
According to the assistant professor Abdullah Abdul Hameed, provisional certificate is a temporary certificate which is issued to ensure that the students do not suffer till the original certificate is issued by the concerned authorities or government department. He said that it is against the the university rule and human logic to deny admission on the basis of lack of provisional certificate.
Another complain that has come to light is that some colleges are not considering the marks of CE( continuous evaluation) in the calculation of the best four subjects.
There is a deduction of 2.5 marks in the calculation of best 4 subjects for those who belong to other board other than CBSE which is also a case of discrimination as Delhi University, being a central university it cannot have differential basis for assessing the students belonging to other board. Also, Malayalam is not taken into consideration in calculation of best 4 subjects whereas laguages such as Bengali and Punjabi are taken into due consideration in calculation of the best percentage.
