A proposal to scrap off the 50% internal quota for DU graduates in post-graduate courses is now under way. DU academic committee’s decision will be sent to the vice-chancellor Mr Yogesh K Tyagi for approval.
The Academic committee found itself in the soup with regards to admission to post-graduate courses for the approaching academic year as the first batch of Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) in DU will graduate this year. CBCS makes the merit-based selection process complicated as it awards grades, not marks, and several students who receive the same grades will apply.
To solve this impending predicament, the committee will either remove reservation for DU students or come up with a ‘tie-breaker’ formula. If the reservation is removed completely, DU graduates will have to sit for PG exams as well.
