NEW DELHI—Many students applying online for admissions to different courses in the Jamia Millia Islamia have complained that they are not able to upload the marksheet of the qualifying examination along with the online application form on the university’s portal.
The last date for filling up the application form online expired on September 14. The last date for submitting online application was August 20 earlier which was extended to September 14 owing to the prevailing situation.
The students facing the problem of not being able to upload the marksheet of the qualifying examinations are seeking admissions to undergraduate course, masters courses as also M.Phil and other courses.
Jamia’s media coordinator Ahmed Azeem, when contacted, said that he had received phone calls from several persons in this regard. “I will have to talk to the concerned authorities in this regard”, he said.
Jamia, which is one of the leading central universities in the country, held entrance examinations every year in June for admissions to 56 undergraduate and 15 postgraduate courses. However, the tests could not be held this year due to unprecedented situation developing due to Covid pandemic and lockdown preventing movement of the people and assembly of large number of people at a place to check spread of the coronavirus infection. The university sources said that the admission this year would be done on merit, based on the performance of students in the last qualifying examinations and hence, the uploading of the marksheets is very essential.
Sources said that it was because of this reason that students have been asked to upload the marksheet of the qualifying examination along with online application for admission on university’s portal.
