The NEP Challenge of DU:
DU is all set to implement the futuristic and more inclusive National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Hence, as per the VC, it is a very conducive time to look into this matter. The introduction of the New Education Policy (NEP) is a coming-of-age step for Delhi University. Also, it will help the varsity commensurate with international standards.
One of the new announcements by VC Yogesh Singh is a step in direction of New Education Policy implementation. Hence, the DU VC had recommended admissions through entrance exams rather than the age-old cut-off system. Also, this decision has already been approved by both the academic council of DU and the executive council of DU.
CUCET is the newest change in DU:
The varsity has two options – Delhi University Common Entrance Test (DUCET) or Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET). Thus, either it can join the education ministry’s central test or have its own. Considering the vast structure and huge no of students in Delhi University, it is better to start its own entrance test for UG courses.
According to New Education Policy, Delhi University students should be given some academic mobility. Hence, even when they are enrolled in one program, they can take up another course in a different college. Hence, extending facilities can be beneficial as Delhi University has 50 constituent colleges. This can help students achieve holistic growth.
