Odisha urges Centre to extend CHSE marksheet submission date for UG admission in DU
Bhubaneswar: In view of delay in declaration of Plus II Arts Examination results, Odisha School & Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash urged the Ministry of Education to extend the date for submission of CHSE marksheets for admission into UG courses under Delhi University.
“As you are aware, due to COVID-19 pandemic, in spite of all sincere efforts by Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE), Odisha, the result for Arts Stream (12th class) could not be published. I and my team assure you that the result of +2 Arts stream will be declared by first week of September, 2020. In this situation, students of Odisha CHSE will not be in a position to submit marksheet by August 31 and many meritorious students from the State of Odisha will not be able to participate in merit based admission for the year 2020, if the last date is not extended,” Dash wrote to Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal.
He requested to Pokhriyal for intervention in the matter by instructing the Delhi University for extension of time for submission of higher secondary marksheet by one week till September 7.
Worth mentioning, the University of Delhi has fixed last date of submission or uploading of higher secondary marksheets as August 31 for UG admission.
