DUSU demands re-exam or promotion of B.Com students who failed in practicals
Third year B.Com students of various colleges under the DU have alleged that they were misinformed about the pass marks for the practical exam
The Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) today demanded that the varsity promotes all B.Com students who had failed in the computer applications practical exam or hold it again within a month. Third year B.Com students of various colleges under the DU had alleged that they were "misinformed" about the pass marks for the practical exam, as a result of which over 300 students reportedly failed. "Nobody told us that 16 was the minimum marks needed for clearing the computer application practical exam. We thought aggregate 40 marks, including internals, theory and practicals alone were to clear the exam," Pawan Tanwar of Shaheed Bhagat Singh Evening College said. Following the controversy, the Union has submitted a memorandum to the university administration and demanded that they implement it, failing which the union would launch a protest. "It is a mistake on the part of the administration to not give proper information to students about pass marks. If they do not meet the demand, we will launch a protest near the Dean's office," President Amit Tanwar said. Deputy Dean of Students' Welfare, Gurpreet Tuteja refused to speak on the issue while the Dean of Examinations, Vinay Gupta was not available for comment.
