DU decides to scrap 10 per cent deduction policy for students from State Boards

The Delhi University has decided to do away with the 10 per cent deduction policy for students from state boards. Till last year the students with science subjects who came from boards were allotted 60 marks for theory and 40 marks for practical used to lose out on 10 % marks. As state boards follow 60:40 scheme for theory and practical examination, whereas CBSE follows 70:30

division. So, students who were applying from these state boards used to lose 10 marks from each subject. Now DU has finally decided to scrap this policy and the students from state boards will
compete with the rest of the students from equal platform.

Admissions open for Executive MBA Programmes at Delhi University

Executive MBA Programmes at Delhi University

Faculty of Management Studies of Delhi University is inviting applications for the admission to its MBA and the doctoral programmes for the 2015 session. It is the first time that for the admission in the MBA programme of Delhi University the CAT scores will be accepted.

Delhi University Registrar said in an official notification today, “The Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) has started the online registration for MBA, MBA (Executive), MBA Executive (Health Care Administration) and the PhD programmes for the academic session 2015-16.”

The students who are in the final year of their Bachelor degree are eligible to apply for the MBA programme, candidates seeking admission to MBA Executive and MBA Executive (Health Care Administration) programmes should have at least five years of experience after passing the bachelor’s degree examination.


  • Opening of Online Registration Date: October 01, 2015.
  • Last Date for Registration Date: November 10, 2015.

Online registration along with the supporting documents to FMS latest by December 11, 2015.


  • MBA Executive – 159
  • MBA Executive (Health Care Administration) – 39

As we know that Delhi University is modifying its selection pattern this year, the university will no longer conduct the entrance examination for the applicants as FMS will be using the Common Admission Test (CAT) scores to shortlist candidates for its Masters of Business Administration (MBA) 2015-17 programme.

However, it is really important to note that the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) do not play any role in the selection process of FMS or in delivering the MBA programme.

FCRA registrations cancelled for DU and JNU


The FCRA registrations of Delhi University and JNU have been cancelled for alleged violation of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act 2010, leaving both the universities in a lurch.

This may cause disruption in the offer of fellowships for international seminars and programmes to students as well as the Memorandum of Understanding, that each has signed with the foreign institutes/universities.

The major cause of concern, however, is whether DU and JNU fall under FCRA. A document by the Ministry of Home Affairs does state that all statutory bodies established under a Central Act and audi ted by the Comptroller & Auditor General of India are exempted from all the provisions of FCRA 2010.

It is highly likely that this decision will affect Delhi University largely as it has several collaborations with foreign institutions including MoUs with over 50 universities. This however, does not mean that DU receives funds from them. For instance, the Department of Germanic and Romance Studies has agreements with at least 10 European universities but in no case does a university send funds to India.

The de-licensing has caused about 971 organisations to be stripped of their registration since the month of May under the FCRA. The premiere non-profit bodies that have hit the list are the Supreme Court Bar Association, Indian Law Institute, Gujarat National Law University, School of Planning and Architecture, Escorts Heart Institute among others.

DU CUT-OFFS: Inching nearly 100 PERCENT

Delhi Ubiversity Cut OFF

With the date of announcement of CBSE and ISC results for Class 12 coming out anytime soon, Delhi University aspirants are dreading the cut-off. With students like Arkya Chatterjee from Kolkata scoring as high as 99.75 percent in ISC Board Exams, the anticipation regarding CBSE Board results has only increased and students might be inching towards a perfect 100. There will be a surge of announcements from colleges in Delhi University as soon as the CBSE results are announced. The cut-off will depend majorly on the results of the students. Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the cut-offs because of the consistent scoring of the students.

As a result, the cut-offs this year are expected to reach as high as 100 percent for the academic year 2015. Science students are under the most threat of the rising cut-off, since they have an option to opt for Humanities and Commerce as well. With percentages increasing every year and with limited seats in colleges like Lady Shri Ram, Shri Ram College of Commerce, Hindu and St. Stephen’s College might be disappointing news for many students. Many colleges take into account the best of four, even though the overall aggregate is out of five subjects.

Colleges will soon release a required percentage and minimum marks and students who fulfill the criteria will start applying in the subsequent days. A separate cut-off will be announced for students belonging to Other Backward Classes (OBC) and Scheduled Castes (SC), based on the reservation guidelines set up by the Government of India. Students, who wish to get admission on the basis of extra-curricular activity and sports, will have to apply separately to each college by giving an audition/performance. Let’s just hope that despite the sky-high cut-offs, students get admission into the course of their choice.

Choice Based Credit System replaced percentage score in Delhi University

vacancies in Government Banks

The joint registrar of Delhi University has decided to use the University Grants Commission’s Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in scoring in examinations in place of percentage score. The Joint Registrar of academics in DU informed all the colleges On April 29 that they must kick their preparation off to implement CBCS from the next educational session.

The decision emerged following a meeting between the deans of the colleges and the Vice-Chancellor of DU, Dinesh Singh on April 23 in which the Executive Council of the university affiliated to to go ahead with CBCS for 19 B.A and B.Sc courses.

Regarding this, a letter has been sent to the all colleges asking them to introduce the syllabus according to the guidelines of the UGC. All rules and regulations, model curriculum and syllabus structure has been made available on the official website of the UGC.

A few months ago, the faculties of DU colleges objected the implementation of the CBCS, saying that it will be difficult for the University to accommodate with three different systems for each academic year- CBCS in the first year, semester system in the second year and the FYUP in the third year.

According to the UGC, whose key plan is the opening of choice based credit system to allow students to transfer across universities in India and overseas also. This system will be no character translation problem or discrepancy scheme in scoring among universities. This enables students to choose courses that they love to learn at their own pace, to take additional courses for additional credits and adopt an interactive approach to learning.

The UGC has taken a number of steps to improve the efficiency and excellence in higher education, and this has led to significant improvements in the standards of education. But as a consequence of the universities in India after evaluating various systems, students experience the receipt of their credentials across the University system, as well as employment agencies.

In order to solve this problem, guidelines for the adoption of a unified credit system have been proposed. The credits obtained by students can be transferred and this would help them in case they need to migrate from one College to another.
