Delhi High Court has put a stay on the examinations scheduled in December for the students of School of Open Learning, Delhi University. The university will now hold the two semester exams together.

Keeping in mind this decision, SOL Director, CS Dubey, has stated that ‘If IGNOU can conduct exams of two semesters together, so can we. We have tried our best to make sure that SOL students should be at par with the regular students. But some organisations wanted to disrupt that. There are many students who still want to give the exam in December this year.’

Ramesh Bhardwaj, the officer on special duty, also said that ‘We had told students that we will either extend exam dates from November 27 to end of December or give opportunity to students to give exam of two semesters together. I find the verdict to be a victory of the SOL administration because the court has agreed to uphold the semester system which a few students and teachers were against.’

Earlier, protests were made by the students as they demanded the rollback of the semester and Choice Based Credit System, which according to them, was implemented ‘hastily’. Students also have been emphasizing on the lack of infrastructure, study material and teaching support available for them since September. Krantikari Yuva Sangathan also came to their aid and has been supporting them in their struggle against the administration of the university.
