<![CDATA[After a year of studying in the FYUP scheme and the chaos that saw it being rolled back, students thought that the confusion will give way to a uniform course structure to be studied across the University. However, the newly introduced Allied Course has brought with it a fair share of confusion and discrepancy. Students in the erstwhile FYUP were meant to study a second subject under the proposed idea of DC 2 for six semesters. For this purpose students spent a large amount of time in their second semester deciding and filling out their preferences but that came to nothing due to the roll back of the programme. The newly introduced Allied Course is to be taught in semesters 3 and 4 through one paper each semester. The issue however is the lack of clear guidelines from the University to the colleges on issues such as the choices to be offered, the marking scheme and the course content. In the absence of these clear guidelines, colleges have adopted different policies on this issue. Some colleges like Hansraj, LSR and JMC have directly allotted students subjects on the basis of their course without giving them any options- students of Economics in these colleges have directly been allotted Mathematics and those of B. Com have been given Economics and so on. In other colleges students have been given a few options to choose from but this disparity is not just limited to colleges but also to different courses in colleges. At the Shri Ram College of Commerce, students of B. Com were directly allotted Economics as their allied course while students of Economics were given an option to choose between Mathematics and Political Science. St. Stephen’s college has provided students with options for the allied course as well but these options haven’t been extended to students of all courses. Other colleges are still in the dark when it comes to the allied course and are expecting news by Monday. There seems to be no directive from the University to ensure that colleges follow a uniform policy on the issue. Information on the Delhi University Website is limited to the allied course papers of different subjects. The students continue to remain uncertain about the exact details of their course structure and are hoping for some clarity soon.]]>
Akash is a student of Economics at SRCC who believes that Foundation Courses are not what we deserve and sure as hell are not what we need right now. Subtly inserting Dark Knight Quotes into everything he isn’t much of a writer. He doesn’t read books, probably because he spends his time swimming, debating, watching good movies and still believing in the Livestrong message. He doesn’t really care about using good language but definitely thinks people should exercise restraint when it comes to hashtags. Livestrong and Prosper!
