Semester System Not So Popular In Delhi University

Semester Scheme in Delhi University
The Delhi University has finally approved for the Semester Scheme which was under discussion since last year. All the courses has been upgraded again and students are on the way to take their first semester examination on the coming December. This issue was held on 28th of October, 2010, when the Members of Delhi University Teacher's Association (DUTA) isolated a protest at Jantar Mantar against the Introduction of the Semester System and Semester based science courses for Undergraduate studies .

Though it seems to be very simple that the issue ' Semesterisation of Undergraduate Education' with which no reasonable person had any disapproval . The basic idea just said that the students will learn and get evaluated in just 13-15 weeks, and move on to next part of course. The experts say the Factors that the semester system is not considering are : Inadequacy of Time , No Extra Classes, Increasing Work Load, and Reduction in CCA Activities . Both Students and Teachers sense that the Semester scheme is not beneficial for Students and it affects Students in reverse. Also the change has led to the deletion of some topics from the syllabus that are essential and important for a student to learn about in the nature.

By all these on point is been very clear that a little thought seems to have gone into balancing the requirements of Access, Equity and Quality. At present most of the Universities have increased the number of intakes from backward classes for all level of courses, which requires well developed Academic programs , time and mentoring . This argue is not to tell that a semester system is principally evil: instead it is the principle creates the possibility of a beneficial interest in the investment of higher education. A main point to be considered is 'Can this issue turn out be the lesson for all universities that are balanced at the launching rack of educational remedy' .
