Ever since the semester system has been brought to Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (SOL) this year, the teachers have been constantly raising concerns over it relevance. They have been claiming that it will hurt the education system.  Consequently, the teachers have decided to write to the President Ram Nath Kovind, requesting him to postpone the exams this year and begin with the semester system from the next year.

Delhi University has two programmes that allow distance learning – SOL and NCWEB, and this year CBCS (Choice Based Credit System) was introduced in these programmes. This introduction implies that the students will have to take two semester examinations across the year rather than the usual annual exams that happen once, at the end of each year. In July, many students protested against this move of DU claiming that they are not prepared for the implementation of this new system.

Teachers have mentioned in the letter to the president that this announcement has created a chaos in all the SOL study centres when and students are not wrong to protest as they don’t even have the required study material and exams are almost here. The protest is going under the banner of Kratikari Yuva Sangharsh (KYS).

In the letter, the teachers have acknowledged the growing agitation amongst the students owing to the lack of updated books and syllabus.  The number of students suffering from this decision is not less either, but almost 1.5 lakhs.

The letter has been signed by 100 teachers in support of the students as they feel that the decision has been imposed on them by the statutory bodies without a single thought and even if now students appear, they will face difficulties and mass failures are likely to happen. Thus, it has been demanded to roll back CBCS for now, and introduce it in the SOL from the next academic session.
