Members of the Academic and Executive Council of Delhi University have written to the Vice Chancellor to reverse the changes made in the eligibility criteria for various courses, describing them as “arbitrary” and “unwarranted”.

Including Mathematics while calculating your Best of Four % has now become mandatory if you wish to apply for Economics Hons.

Similarly, a score of 50% in Mathematics is mandatory if you wish to apply for BCom Hons.Till last year, an applicant was only expected to have passed in Mathematics subject to study BCom Hons at Delhi University.

“We, the following members of AC and EC, wish to draw your attention towards the drastic changes in eligibility criteria for admissions in various UG courses.”We are shocked to find these major changes in the basic criteria which are at variance with the eligibility criteria being applied till the last academic session. This is important to note that these changes do not have sanction of the Academic Council.”

Changes are “arbitrary, unwarranted and uncalled for” as the admissions are finalised on the basis of merit as reflected in the cut-off of the various courses and thus causing chaos among the students.As per the rules and regulations of our university, such major policy decisions must be taken in the Academic Council, which have far reaching adverse consequences for SC, ST, OBC and EWS students. The students have been caught unaware and they must be given sufficient time to adapt themselves to these changes,” the letter said.

The letter urged the Vice Chancellor to reverse this decisions on an urgent basis.
