Delhi university delays exams, cites unfinished syllabus as reason

Fraught with regular strikes by teachers against the semester being followed by Delhi University, they have not been able to complete the syllabus of several courses. This has turned into a major educational loss for the students, who had appealed to the concerned authorities to postpone the examinations of this semester. And, their wish has been granted as the exams will now be held in December ’10, instead of November.

The Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) had felt the plight the students were undergoing in all colleges of DU, one of the most prestigious universities of the world. Their demand has been acceded to by the requisite authorities, with the Vice Chancellor of the university, Deepak Pental, agreeing to revise the academic calendar. According to the original schedule, the exams were to commence on Nov 20, ’10 and finish by the twenty ninth of the same month.

The President of DUSU said that he welcomed the decision of the university and made an appeal to the teachers to conduct the classes and finish the syllabus within the given time period. He also commented that the students are not against the semester system and disagree with the teachers in this matter. He said it was reasonable the teachers should come to take classes, since the university was making decisions keeping the students interests in mind and so should they.
