Andhra Board had introduced a grading system in class 12 as per which the candidates had to apply for DU admission 2019 with their grades of class 12. Now, as a matter of fact, DU only uses the percentage scores of class 12 for admission and cutoff marks. This had lead DU authorities to convert the grades of the AP board students into percentage marks by taking a mean score, as per the CBSE rules.
As a result of this conversion, it was witnessed that no student from the AP board could obtain more than 95%. And it is very well known that all the most baited course of DU falls in the 95%+ category, as per the first cutoff list. The DU second cutoff list is witnessing a drop of cutoff marks by a little margin of 0.5% to 1%. The second cutoff list is out, Bhagini Nivedita is the first college to declare the second DU cutoff list 2019.
This stirred up the situation and the Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, advised all the state board to provide class 12 marks in the form of percentage only so that the admission in all the central universities is fair for all.

Following this AP state board had decided to provide the students of class 12 with new marks in the form of percentage score that they can now download from the website of the board, effective now. Also, the AP government wrote to the DU urging it to consider the newly released marks of state board students for admissions. DU accepted this request and the AP students can now apply for DU Admissions 2019 with their new percentage scores.
However, many students had missed the opportunity. The Delhi University authorities have also sent emails and SMS texts to all students from Andhra Pradesh to download the marks from Intermediate board and upload them while applying in Delhi University.
Based on the first cutoff list the DU Admission 2019 was supposed to end on Monday, July 01, 2019. But the notification to the Andhra students regarding a one-day extension of admission went out on Monday night. As a result on Tuesday, July 02, 2019, only a handful of AP students turned up for admissions to DU colleges with their new parentage scores.
However, the release if the actual marks also proved to be a cause of trouble for many, as for some students when the percentage marks were released, the overall percentage slid by 2%-3% making them ineligible for admission to all the popular DU colleges.
There have been instances in colleges like the Shri Ram College of Commerce, where 4 students have enrolled for the Economics (Hons) course and 6 in BCom (Hons) course. After the release of actual marks, these students are now not meeting the required marks for admission and their admissions have been cancelled.
However, for a few students, the grass has been greener on their side. There is an instance where a female student got a 1% hike in her percentage after AP board released her actual score and as a result, she took admission in Hansraj College.
