Already half a year of college has gone by, but the School of Open Learning (SOL) students of Delhi University still haven’t received their printed study material. The students are usually given their study material at the time of admission between July and September. The students have alleged that due to this it is difficult for them to prepare for the annual examination of May- June 2018.
There has also been a delay in the commencement of their classes. Every year, the classes for these students begin in the last week of September. But this year, they started just three weeks ago with the students not having even the faintest idea about the course.
The postgraduate students got their study materials just a week prior to the exams earlier this month. Now one can imagine the harm it caused to their studies. These students are at a loss as they follow the semester exams system. The undergraduates¬†are to sit for their exams in May- June.
While the regular students are done with their exams, the SOL students are still in a dilemma about their syllabus.If this delay continues it will be very hard for both the undergraduate and post-graduate students to pass the exams.
‚ÄúSchool of Open Learning has been converted into a school closed for learning as students‚Äô interest has been compromised by not giving them study materials and contact classes in time‚Äù said DU Teachers Association (DUTA) President, Rajib Ray as reported by the Hindustan Times.
The future of these students has been held at stake due to this. The authorities are compromising with their studies. Now we have to see how much more time does the university need to provide the students with the printed study material and proper classes.
