Jasleen Kaur | May 13, 2010
The Academic Council (AC) meeting to decide on syllabus for B.Sc courses based on semester system is underway at Delhi University. The urgent meeting has been called by the Vice Chancellor Prof Deepak Pental following the University's announcement to switch over to the semester system from the coming academic year, last week.
For implementing the system, DU requires approval from the AC, the university's higest decision-making body on academic matters. The Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) has been opposing the move and the elected representative of teachers in the Academic Council rejected the proposal in all its meetings earlier.
J Kuntiah, a member of Academic Council, says, "In today's meeting only syllabus of B.Sc courses will be considered. It is not right to implement the system partially. If implemented partially, in a same college there will be some students following the annual exam pattern and some semester system. This will lead to confusion."
DUTA, meanwhile, is continuing their protest and sitting on dharna outside the VC office.
