A DU Beat Guide to NCWEB

The Non Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB), established in 1943 through an amendment in the Delhi University Act, is a special provision of the university through which female candidates can take examinations of the University with coaching on the weekends, without the requirement of attending regular classes. Degrees are granted for undergraduate and postgraduate courses through this system.

NCWEB only accepts female applicants residing in Delhi NCR and offers lectures only during the weekends and academic breaks. The non collegiate students are not authorized to enroll themselves in other full time courses. The board began functioning in September 1944 with three students. Currently, the enrollment is more than 24,000 as the board is able to accommodate only 20% of the applicants. The admission is granted on the basis of merit through declaration of cut-offs.

The first cut-off list for the admissions this year will be released on June 30. Rakesh Batra, teacher in-charge of NCWEB admissions at Hansraj College said, “We offer a total of 288 seats in two courses, B.A. Programme and B.Com. Programme. The response has been really good till now and all our seats get filled. The classes in Hansraj are conducted on Saturdays or during the vacations.”

Hemchand Jain, Vice Principal of Deen Dayal Upadhyay College said, “NCWEB was introduced to our college last year. We offer a total of 495 seats for two courses- B.A. Programme and B.Com. Programme. The enrolled students are performing really well and doing wonders since we have seen great results in this past year.” Since there is no classroom teaching, no written material is given. The students have to maintain a minimum of 66% to appear for the university examinations. There are 50 teaching days in a year and at the Undergraduate level, classes are held between  9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m with 6 periods in a day.

Anju, a second year student of B.A. Programme at Deen Dayal Upadhyay College said, “We have around 60 classes during the year and we have classes every Saturday and throughout December. The classes have been very fruitful for me and I am doing a course on makeup along with this.”

Professors of the Delhi University and affiliated colleges are deputed as guest faculty to teach the non collegiate students. The pass percentage is similar to that of regular students. The programme accepts students at a low cost and utilises existing infrastructure of educational institutions. Financial aid is provided to needy and deserving students for the academic year.
