The School of Open Learning (SOL) of Delhi University has decided to extend its exams by three weeks. The exams, which were scheduled to start from November 27, will now be held by December-end. Extra personal contact programme classes will be held to finish syllabus before exams. Students had earlier approached the high court complaining that they got their study material late . They also demanded to bring back the annual mode for this year.
Over choice-based credit system (CBCS), SOL director CS Dubey said that they spoke to students at 12 of their centres “where most students supported it as they were happy with the fact that the students of SOL would be at par with the regular college students. But there are a few who demand that the annual mode be completely brought back.”
“We have decided to extend exams to finish syllabus, but the semester has to end by December 31.” A group of students claimed that revision in dates will not help them much. One of them who attended an extra class on Tuesday alleged that it was conducted poorly. “Students were just asked to write notes. SOL sent the notification late at night and many missed the class.”
