The “special chance” provision allowed students who left their studies midway to appear for pending exams even years later if they could justify their absence.
The the supreme decision-making body of the university decided to scrap this provision by saying that students must complete their degrees within stipulated time.
“Students are here to study. Why can’t they complete their degrees on time?” an EC member asked.
He said in case of any “reasonable” issue forcing students to take a break- like health reasons or marriage- they already get a ‘span time’ to complete it.
“There is no need for any chance beyond that,” he said.
The ‘span time’ provision allows students extra time to complete their degrees.
Thus, as per DU norms, undergraduate students need to finish their degrees inside six years while post-graduate degrees must do it inside four years from the date of enrollment.

“It is not only unprofessional but also puts undue pressure on the examination office,” the member said.
The provision, which has been a matter of debate in the varsity for over a decade, was done away with in 2012, but was brought back following protests from students.
