Out of the 63 colleges in Delhi University with centralized admission process, St Stephan’s College along with Jesus and Mary College conducts their own undergraduate admission process.
Regardless of hostility from its teachers St Stephen’s College will be conducting a written test for admission for its undergraduate courses.
With 85% weightage for the 12th board exam results and 15% divided between the test and an interview conducted, students with the required cut-offs have to sit for these for the final selection.
Former principal Valson Thampu introduced the written test in 2015 but with the new principal John Varghese since March the teachers were hoping that the written tests would be eliminated.
“There were various teachers who had opposed the test. The principal, however, decided to retain it,” said an anonymous teacher.
Furthermore another anonymous source from the college said that for the first time the principal has decided to take on the role of head admission tutor.
The final decision was made at a meeting on 6th May, which authorized the constitution of an admission committee consisting of in-house teachers.
This religious minority college offers ten various undergraduate courses like Bachelor of Arts in Economics, Philosophy, History, English, Sanskrit and pass course. Bachelor of Science is offered in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Bsc pass.
