On the agenda for Delhi University’s (DU) executive council meeting, scheduled for May 28 – the same day the online registration for admission begins – is the choice-based credit system (CBCS). It is likely that the system may find approval. The University Grants Commission’s documents on course structure and the system for computing ‘credits’ and CGPAs (cumulative grade point averages) will also be discussed. It may be mentioned that absence of clearance from the councils has been holding up implementation and giving hope to detractors—entire departments have resolved against CBCS—that it’s not coming to DU this year.
The renaming of two master’s level courses, the merging of two departments, handing over of UCMS to Delhi government and the establishment of an “Electropreneur Park” at South Campus, are the other issues that will be discussed.
Previously, DU had said that it will not go ahead with the implementation of the CBCS if its Executive Council and Academic Council decide against the same.
