Class 12 students of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from the Capital who had given their papers for rechecking fear that delay in the process will cause them to miss Delhi University’s deadline of June 19 for the submission of forms.
The CBSE’s Class 12 results were announced on May 27. Even students who had sent their papers for rechecking the very next day have not received the results yet. “I was expecting between 85 and 90 marks in physics and was shocked to get only 40. I applied for rechecking immediately after the result and was told that I’ll be informed of any changes in marks in 10 days. But it’s been more than two weeks now and I have no information whatsoever,” said a disgruntled student and DU hopeful.
Another anxious DU aspirant said, “I’ve already bought the form but I’m waiting for a change in my CBSE Class 12 marks. I can’t even decide on course options till I get the marks because I will not be able to judge if I’ll make the cut-off. I just hope it comes before the date the DU form submission closes.”
CBSE officials conceded that the process was taking time but assured that all the students will get their rechecking result before DU’s deadline. “The process of rechecking is time consuming since a particular student’s answer sheet has to be searched among lakhs of copies. Further, to ensure accuracy, the paper checking happens at three levels. We are aware of the Delhi University admission deadline and are working to get all the rechecking results out as soon as possible but definitely by June 18,” said a CBSE official.
BTech in Psychological Science
Psychology has emerged as one of the most sought-after courses in Delhi University today, with the course being a well-balanced mix of theory and practical application.
Students are introduced to the basics of psychology with the general psychology paper, along with a paper in statistics and physiological psychology. The course proceeds, to more theoretical aspects of the subject with papers in social psychology, systems and theories, research methods and the theories behind psychological testing.
Students also study abnormal and developmental psychology as their two main papers, along with other optional papers like organizational psychology, counselling psychology and self and personality. This is accompanied by a project and a field report along with other practicals.
