The University is all set to make it easier for students from the various state boards to calculate their score of eligibility for the array of undergraduate courses available in the varsity.

Till 2017, the university accepted marks with 70% theory and 30% practical as awarded in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).But adjustments were made for applicants from state boards where the practical marks can go as high as 50% and marks of theory and practical were converted to 70% and 30% respectively on pro rata basis.Now, the good news is that the university is planning to drop the adjustment of marks and simply consider the total marks scored in any four academic subjects which is¬†”the best of four marks”.

For example, if a student from a state board has scored 30 out of 50 in theory and 20 out of 50 in practical, then this will be adjusted by the 70:30 ratio and marks will become 42 in theory and 12 in practical.Even though the student scored 55 marks as per his mark sheet but his effective marks will be counted as 54, as stated by a DU official.So, the committee is now contemplating to consider the total marks scored in such subjects for calculation of  the ‘best of four’.If the recommendation is finalized, then the effective marks in the case explained above will remain 60.

Till 2016, DU deducted 10 marks or 2.5 percentage points from the score of applicants whose ‘best of four’ included subjects not having 70 marks for theory and 30 marks for practical.

While the proposed amendment seems to be apparently a boon, the consequences are yet to be looked upon when brought to reality.
