Students of the School of Open Learning, Delhi University
demanded postponement of the examinations. The students urged the VC to
postpone the examination of the School of Open Learning since the date sheet
for the examinations has been released quite late.
The exams for the students pursing the Master’s Degree in
Political Science are supposed to start from coming Thursday and they received the
dates on Monday only.
The students said that the exams are about to begin and they
have no time to prepare. The students also met the higher authorities of the
SOL for the postponement of the examinations. Since no response came from the
authorities the students approached VC. “This kind of ad hoc behavior by the
SOL has been seen in the past also, and they have released untimely date sheets
quite often” said one of the students.
The students are determined to start agitation since their
demands for postponement of the exams were not considered. More than 300
students are pursuing Masters Degree in Political Science out of 12,000
“Usually university releases date sheet one month prior to
the examinations” said one of the students.
The SOL authorities have a different version for the same.
They said “The date sheets had been updated as early as in July’16 and the
final dates of November 24th had already been communicated.
the students said that “no specific information regarding subject-wise date
sheet was mentioned in the calendar.
