The governing body of St Stephen’s College on Tuesday decided to challenge the recent High Court order directing it to follow the admission policy framed by Delhi University.

The university told the college that the Common University Admission Test (CUET) score should be given 100 percent weightage while granting admission to non-minority students seeking admission to its undergraduate programs.

The High Court last week ordered St. Stephen’s College to withdraw its undergraduate admission prospectus in which it gave 15% weightage to interview and 85% weightage to CUET score.

Sources in the governing body of the college said Hindu that the matter was discussed and put to a vote. According to the source, 12 members voted to challenge the high court verdict while five members argued that challenging the order would derail the entire admission process.

“CUET was imposed on all central universities and St. Stephen’s College, which is a constituent college of DU, must comply with it. Otherwise, the faculty will miss out on admitting some of the brightest students this year,” said a source who was among the dissenting voices.

The source also said that Delhi University’s admission portal is already operational and seeking temporary relief to conduct this year’s admissions through the normal method could lead to a situation where no students will be admitted this year.

“We have recommended that the college follow the procedure laid down by the university for this year and appeal the HC decision before the admission process next year. But the governing body decided against it,” the source added.
