Having witnessed the chaos that had been caused by the introduction of the semester system for undergraduate science courses at the Delhi University, the introduction of the semester system has been delayed by a year at the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University. The semester system at JMI had earlier been planned to be introduced commencing from the 2011-12 academic session. According to the university, the semester system has been delayed from being implemented because teachers still need time to restructure and revise the courses. Media coordinator at JMI Simi Malhotra said that the Master's, M.Phil. and Ph.D courses had been revised last year and the whole procedure had been very time-consuming. “The number of courses at the undergraduate level are a lot and we need to restructure them all properly,” she said. Authorities at the university have also said that it would be wiser to wait another year before the semester system is implemented at the varsity. JMI Vice Chancellor Najeeb Jung said that it has been a year since the semester system had been introduced for the Master's level courses at the varsity. “We concluded after a review that we still required another year to implement the semester system at the undergraduate level at the university so that the transition is smooth,” he said.
