The amendment of the rules in the section of supplementary exams at the Delhi University Faculty of Law have made the students anxious and put them in hot waters affecting their near future career choices.
LLB honours is a course of three years. The students have a provision of taking the supplementary exams to clear the backlogs which he or she couldn’t get through in the first attempt in any semester.
Nevertheless, in lieu of the recent change rules for appearing in a supplementary exam, the final year students can only appear for the papers in the fifth and sixth semesters which they have not cleared in the first attempt. This includes that students need to wait for six months or maybe one year to clear any paper left in semester one, two, three, and four that cumulates up to last year for appearing for the respective exams with the regular examination held in every term or in the capacity of an ex-student.
Delhi High Court lawyer Mohit Kumar Gupta,an ex-student of DU Law Faculty, said that one has to get through LLB to apply at several places and eliminating supplementary exam is imperative yet dicey case of administrative misadventure.
Despite several attempts, Dean Law Faculty Ved Kumari can hardly be contacted.
However, an Academic Council (AC) member said the issue needs to be revisited and modified before it affects the careers of hundreds of students. The discussion will thereof be raised at the AC meeting.
