DU: Students With Less Attendance To Miss Exams

Students Detained From Taking Exam In DU
Delhi University (DU) has taken a strict decision not to allow students with less attendance to write the Semester Exams. As a result, more than 350 DU Students have been detained from writing semester exams. Cases of college authorities' negligence in the issue have also been revealed. It has been reported that a student of Dyal Singh college with 75% of attendance was not allowed to appear for his first exam due to wrong calculation of attendance. The records were recalculated on a teacher's plea and he was allowed to write the exam.


In the mean time, a group of teachers from Dyal Singh college has requested the deputy dean of student's welfare to reconsider the decision. The colleges hold different views on attendance rules as dean Dayal Upadyay, Zakhir Hussain (evening college), Dyal Singh College, Janki Devi Memorial College and Acharya Narendra Dev College are in favour of barring students with less attendance from taking exams whereas Hindu, Ramjas, Zakir Hussain (morning college), Gargi, Daulat Ram, Ramanujan and Kamla Nehru are against it.

The colleges allowing students to appear for exams despite of less attendance complained about the time constraints as the deadline for submitting attendance sheet was November 18th and exams were supposed to start from November 23rd which left the colleges with a little time to calculate the attendance and display them for 5 days on notice boards as per DU rules.

The students who have been barred from appearing in exams are complaining about the disparity among the colleges as some of the colleges have allowed the students with the same attendance to write the exams. The dean of students welfare refused to give any comments on this matter as the DU officials are only authorized to clarify the issue.
