As per the amendments of the rules of undergraduate admission of Delhi University, students are now supposed to acknowledge the certificates of the subjects they have studies and are not listed in the subject list of Delhi University. The content equivalence certificate from the Principal or head of the institution is mandatory to be submitted by the applicant. A copy of the syllabus of the paper attested by the Principal or head of the institution must be accompanied with the equivalence certificate.
The admission committee of Delhi University this year has summarized various subjects inclined to different state boards but having similar curriculum to that of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and which are considered as conventional.
“This will ensure justice to students from other boards and also for those aspirants who hail from far-flung areas. They will also get an opportunity to study in the DU.” Rasal Singh, member of academic council and standing committee of admission told Indian Express.
Earlier the subjects like biochemistry, civics which are taught by Jammu and Kashmir Board and Uttar Pradesh Board respectively fell under the category of vocational subjects following which students had to face the deduction of 2.5% in marks.
According to the Delhi University’s admission bulletin, “if a paper’s title does not match with what is specified by the DU, it is mandatory for the applicant to provide a content equivalence certificate from the principal or the head of the institution last attended, certifying that the paper’s content is equivalent to the NCERT class 12 syllabus for that paper.”
