UGC asks education institutions to fix UG admission last date after CBSE class 12th result

New Delhi: University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked higher education institutions to fix the last date of their undergraduate admission process after declaration of CBSE class 12th result to provide sufficient time to students for admission. In a letter to the Vice-Chancellors of all Universities and Principals and Directors of all colleges, the UGC said that it has come to the notice that some universities have started registration in UG courses for the session 2022-23.

In this scenario, the students of CBSE will be deprived of admission if the last date is fixed by the Universities prior to the declaration of the 12th result. The UGC added that the CBSE evaluation process is ongoing and soon the process of CBSE Class 12 result declaration will begin. It said the CBSE conducted board examinations in two terms to nullify the impact of COVID. The performance of term 1 has already been communicated to the schools and the evaluation of term 2 is going on. The letter said the final CBSE results will be announced after combining the weightage based on the performance in both terms. The entire period will take a month.
