Delhi University may soon go the JNU way by giving benefit to students who have done their schooling in villages and those from government schools. This was decided in a meeting of DU’s Standing Committee of the Academic Council Thursday, as part of changes to the admission process. The final decision rests with the Academic Council. The Vice-Chancellor, however, may also use his power to pass the decisions.
“We are planning to give some advantage to students from government schools and those who have done their schooling in villages. This is in addition to the benefit we are already giving to girls,” said committee member Rasal Singh. The committee has also advised that an online calculator be devised, which can calculate students’ best-of-four percentage according to the course.
