The Delhi High Court had on September 12 asked St Stephen’s to conduct UG admissions following Delhi University admission policy, according to which 100 per cent weightage has to be given to the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-2022 score while granting admission to non-minority students in its undergraduate courses.
The High Court had said the college cannot conduct interviews for non-minority category students and that the admission should be as per the CUET score alone. The High Court had also said the rights accorded to a minority institution under the Constitution cannot be extended to non-minorities. It had said the college has the authority to conduct interviews, in addition to the CUET score, for the admission of Christian students but it cannot force the non-minority candidates to additionally undergo an interview.
Meanwhile, St Stephen’s wants to give 85 per cent weightage to CUET and 15 per cent to interviews for admitting students across categories.
