At the private university that I am in now, the fee was around Rs 10 lakh, and with taxes it totalled up to Rs 12 lakh. Had she been secured admission at the varsity, she would have not spend that much amount over her studies.” Ritu Arora, a homemaker, has a similar story to tell. “My son had his heart set on studying economics from DU. But the varsity has unreal expectations from students. Not everyone can score 96 percent or above. What about those guys, who did not manage to score equivalent marks to get enlisted in DU,” she rues. However, not all students and parents have given up hope. Archana Kashyap, a housewife, shares “We were really hoping that our daughter would get admission in DU. Though our dreams were dashed when the cut-offs were declared, we are still hopeful, as colleges are declaring their own merit lists and we are constantly praying to god that somehow she makes it. She has taken admission in a private university for now, but we are ready to withdraw that if she makes it to DU.”last_img
