Delhi University may go the JNU path by offering advantage to aspirants who did their schooling in villages and the individuals who studied in government schools.

This proposal was accepted in a gathering of DU’s standing committee of the Academic Council Thursday.

“We are planning to give some advantage to students from government schools and those who have done their schooling from villages. This is in addition to the benefits we are already giving to girls,” Committee member Rasal Singh said.

The committee also intends to inculcate the use of electronic calculators for speedy and accurate calculation of the best-of-four percentage.

“As of now, the percentage is calculated manually. As every college has its own criteria for each course, the percentage calculation differs. For instance, in some courses like Chemistry, it is a standard calculation that marks of physics, chemistry and maths are taken into account. But in several courses like language ones, every college includes different subjects in the best-of-four criteria. This online calculator will do away with that. There will be one percentage per course,” also added by Mr. Singh.

Apart from all this, several recommendations have also been put forward like that of checking students and preventing multiple subject hopping by students. What all recommendations will be agreed upon, only time will tell.
