Students Request to Cancel Exams:
The University of Delhi, informally known as Delhi University (DU), is a collegiate public central university, located in New Delhi, India. It was founded in 1922 by an Act of the Central Legislative Assembly. As a collegiate university, its main functions are divided between the academic departments of the university and affiliated colleges. Consisting of three colleges, two faculties, and 750 students at its founding, the University of Delhi has since become India’s largest institution of higher learning and among the largest in the world.
Earlier, Delhi University had announced that online open-book examinations for final year students will begin from 1 July. Amid opposition from teachers and students, the university on Saturday, 27 June, postponed the exam for 10 days, stating the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic as the reason. Now Students from Delhi University have demanded a cancellation of the final semester online Open book Examinations and instead promote the final year students based on the evaluations on their performance in the previous semesters.
Students Statement on DU OBE:
“The OBE debacle must not be seen as a ‘one-off’ or an ‘isolated’ incident. It is simply an extension to the neo-liberal model of education which had been manifested in NITI AYOG Vision Documents, New Education Policy 2019, and the Union Budget allocations which have been insistent on forcing down massive privatization and ‘Online Non-Classroom Learning and Evaluation’ much before the conditions of the pandemic developed,” students said.
