The University of Rajasthan (RU) was just about to close the admission process when it was realised that the results for some final year examination were yet to be declared.
The university has now kept the option open for such students by extending the deadline to submit forms online up to July 5 while July 7 is deadline to submit hard copies of admission forms.
However, the university hasn't granted any relaxation for other applicants as the deadline with late fee of Rs 50 remains till June 26. In the meanwhile, the students completing graduation this year are in dilemma as their final year results had not been announced yet.
"The students awaiting their final year results were not able to submit the applications for admissions to various post graduate degrees and diploma courses. To facilitate such students, the university administration has allowed them to submit applications online till July 5 and submit the hard copies at their respective departments by July 7," said professor Rajeev Gupta, convener, centralised admissions committee, Rajasthan University.
Meanwhile, the student leaders have criticized the university's delay in declaration of the results. "The university administration had been publicizing its early declaration of results this year where it has failed miserably. Even the authorities were ignorant of the basic fact before deciding schedule for admission process this year. We have now demanded the vice-chancellor to further extend the date of online admission to help a large number of students," said General Secretary of RU Student's Union Narsi Kirad.
It is learnt that major chunk of applications received by the university by June 20 were from students applying for undergraduate courses.
