The Delhi University (DU) brought a change in their eligibility criteria for applicants of UG courses of B.A. Economics (hons) and B.Com( hons) for 2019 admissions.

Mathematics/Business Mathematics is made MANDATORY to be included in the Best of 4 calculation for Eco(hons.), and a score of atleast 50% makes an applicant eligible for B.Com (hons.) in DU this year.

Check out this article by DU Express.

The previous eligibility criterion for both the aforementioned courses was that ‘the student must have studied and passed in Mathematics/Business Mathematics in their intermediate examination or any equivalent examination.’ 

“It is a good move but the timing is drastically wrong”, comments Sahibdeep Singh, a DU alumni and the head of SRCC Wings of Fire.

The students should have been informed beforehand about the changes, and not after the results are out, and when a large chunk of students have already registered for the courses.

I, personally, have a Best of 4 of 92.75% (expecting an increase after CBSE Re-evaluation), and have scored 45 in Mathematics. The reformed criterion makes me ineligible for B.Com(hons.), and adversely affects my percentage for Eco(hons).

There are numerous such casescases as mine, and we want to be heard.
