School of Open Learning (SOL) kicks off admission procedure, introduces CBCS’ pattern of syllabus


Delhi University’s School of Learning (SOL) started its admission procedure on 15th of July i.e today.

The SOL has decided to make the admission procedure completely online. However, those below the poverty line (BPL) as well as the physically challenged students will be permitted to approach SOL both online as well as offline for their admissions. Last year, SOL opened an online payment option for all its courses barring B.A Programme. This time, however, all formalities for all the courses- including registration, fees and verification process, will all be conducted solely online. This change may have occurred possibly because out of the 1 Lakh, 43 thousand students admitted last year- applications of 1 Lakh, 10 thousand of them were received online. 

The syllabus of SOL, that will entirely follow the pattern of Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), is currently being prepared. Considering the previous cases of leaked papers and cheating incidents, SOL is now devising a completely techno-based examination system.

The school is accepting admissions for its 5  undergraduate courses, namely- BA Honors English, BA Honors Political Science, BCom Hons, BA Programme and Bcom programme- till 31st August. Although, students may pay their late fees along with an additional charge of Rs 200 by September 15.

The director of campus of SOL was quoted as saying, “In order to keep the syllabus of the school akin to that of DU, SOL will also follow the CBCS pattern this year. However, the examinations will still be held annually. The final syllabus will be ready by September and shall be made available online as well. We would also make sure that the examinations are conducted on computers, this year, in order to avoid malpractices such as cheating.”
