NEW DELHI: In a new development with regard to the new four-year undergraduate programme of Delhi University (DU), it has come to light that the admissions to this course might be based on cut-off percentage. The marks to be considered will be the candidate’s score in Class XII and the marks obtained by the student in the choice of major discipline.
However, this is a tentative decision, the admission criteria is yet to be finalised. There is a possibility that the existing method of accepting cut-off percentages for the admission process will be retained for the July admissions.
The committee formed by the university Vice-Chancellor also discussed framing of admission related guidelines, examination and time-table for the next academic session. Increasing the number of seats in each discipline was also one of the recommendations made by the committee.
Under the new format of the four years course, admissions will be based on the major discipline. The applicants can opt to study for 20 papers in major discipline over a period of four years. Students can take a maximum of six papers in any minor discipline. Student can also opt to leave any course in their secind, third or the inal year.
A student who leaves a course after two years will be an Associate Baccalaureate, those who leave the course after three years will be Baccalaureate, and completion of a course till final year will get the student the title of either Baccalaureate with Honours in major or BTech degree.
