No migration for distance learning students in DU

New Delhi, June 19, 2012, DHNS:

Move impossible because of semester system

Migration of students from Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (SOL) to its regular college has been hampered as the colleges have switched to semester system while SOL is still running on the annual mode.

Semester system in all undergraduate (UG) courses was introduced last year making it difficult for the SOL students seeking migration in second and third year to regular colleges.

“The migration process has been temporarily stopped as the regular colleges have introduced semester system in their first year while we still have the annual mode,” a senior SOL official said.


  “There are discussions about implementing semester system. However, with the vice chancellor announcing four year graduation course that is still under process, there is no clarity if first the semester system will be implemented here or it will be directly put in the four year graduation format,” the official said.

Migration process helps bright students, who could not score well during their Class 12 boards, to get admission in a regular college after the first year. University rules states that students scoring exceptionally well in the first or second year can seek migration to a regular college.

“The syllabus of SOL and regular college courses is 90 per cent similar, but there is no structure worked out for migration between these two systems,” stated the official.

With regular colleges touching even 100 per cent cut-offs, migration for SOL students scoring less in Class 12 used to be a ray of hope.

“I have scored 60 per cent and I want BCom (H). I know with these marks I will not be able to get through the first or second list in most of the colleges. I had jaundice before my board exams, so could not do well. I was hoping to get a migration, which is not clear yet,” said Anirudh Channa.

Students also say there is no notification in the SOL prospectus about halting migrations for the time being.

“It still says students can migrate to second and third year of several programme and honours courses,” a second year SOL student said.
