The Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) of the University of Delhi has opened up a new teaching center this academic year. Prior to this, there were 25 teaching centers for students enrolled under this board.
NCWEB is one of the non-formal education centers of Delhi University, where only women students hailing from Delhi-NCR region can enroll themselves. It offers BA/ B.Com Programmes and post-graduate courses including MA in 13 subjects and M.Sc.(Mathematics).
The new center has been opened at Deen Dayal Upadhaya College, increasing the number of seats by 500 for Non-Collegiate courses. Now, the total number of seats is 12,200.
Under this board, women students are able to get the degree of the University of Delhi without regularly attending the classes. There are around 50 teaching days in a year. Lectures are held on Saturdays/Sundays and during academic breaks, thereby allowing students to pursue other part-time courses and jobs. However, they can’t do full time courses. Also, they can pursue other courses, provided, they meet the minimum attendance criteria.
Students have to attend the lectures at their respective centers, alloted according to the cut-off released by NCWEB. The cut-off for these courses, however, is kept low in comparison to the regular courses of Delhi University. This also gives opportunity to students who secure low grades to enroll themselves as students of the University of Delhi and pursue higher education.
This year, the first cut will be released on July 1. There will be 4 cut-offs in total. Further cut-off lists may be declared, in case, the seats remain vacant.
