Multiple entries and exit provision
Academic Council Member Dr. Sundhashu Kumar said that with the approval of the FYUP course, now a provision has been made for multiple entries and exits in the four-year program. In this way, the student will be able to leave his course and return anytime and complete his course. After completing one year course, you will get a certificate, diploma for two years, degree for three years, and degree with research on completion of four years courses.
After completing three years of studies, he will have to complete two years of post-graduation, while on completing four years, of course, a student will have to complete one year of post-graduation. Sudhanshu Kumar told that after graduating one year MA, 12 papers will have to be read, whereas till now there were 16 papers in MA.
No entrance exam for admission from one year to another
If a student of DU leaves his studies and comes from one year to another to take admission, then he does not have to take the entrance exam. Whereas a student of any other university will have to give an entrance test for admission.
Indian languages paper reduced
The Indian language papers have been reduced under the four-year program. Academic Council members Dr. Alok Ranjan Pandey and Dr. Sudhanshu Kumar said that we do not agree with many aspects of the format of the four-year course. The format of this course is reducing the workload of not only Indian languages but also commerce subjects.
Earlier Hindi was taught compulsorily in two semesters, now it has been changed to English/Indian language. There are eight generic electric papers in this format and 12 core papers. This is not right. Now English and Indian language papers have been done. Students will prefer English and not take the Indian language.
Members say that in making the draft of this four-year course (FYUP), the opinion of the college teachers, the staff council of the college as well as the council of departments have not been consulted. Therefore, this format should be sent to the members for smooth implementation.
