University of Delhi: While a few departments of the University were going through a dip in grades across all the colleges, a new situation has arisen wherein the students of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College (Day) have been marked absent for a core paper of Economics Honors. A few students appeared for the improvement examination of ‘Mathematical Methods for Economics I’ for Semester 01 in December 2019 and have been marked with the grade letter AB in this core paper.
Another upheaval has been complained of from the Kirori Mal College, which lies in the North Campus of the University of Delhi. Students allege that the entire batch of 2nd year of BSc Physical Science has been marked absent in a core paper of ‘Solutions, Phase Equilibria, Conductance, Electrochemistry & Functional Group Organic Chemistry II’ in Semester 03. This paper was conducted on November 29, 2019 at the college. However, no other college has complained of such a grave error in this course.
Unsurprisingly, students from Sri Venkateswara College encountered a similar situation when their result was declared back in February 2020. 35 students of the BCom Programme were marked absent for the paper of ‘Economics of Regulations of Domestic and Foreign Exchange Market’ which was conducted on November 30, 2019 for Semester 05. The University has, however, refrained from correcting this anomaly until the lockdown ends.
The students have been trying to contact the College Principal as well as the University administration for the redressal of their grievance. This news comes especially at a time when many students are raising their voices against the uncanny results that have been released much later than the usual January/February due date and the provision of online examinations.
