DU considers Informatics Practices on par with Computer Science


12/11/2014


There is good news for those who have taken up Informatics Practices in Class XII. Delhi University on Tuesday confirmed that it would consider Informatics Practices on par with Computer Science course for students applying to the four year undergraduate programme at the University.

The decision came following a request to the university by Vineet Joshi, Chairman of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The university’s decision to deduct 2.5 per cent marks from the aggregate of students opting for Informatics Practices in their class XII was earlier termed as ‘unfair’ and discriminatory’ by the chairman.

Malay Neerav, Media Coordinator, DU said that Informatics Practices will be considered on par with Computer Science since the CBSE chairman has made a request to the university and he has better knowledge of the subjects than anyone else.

St. Stephen’s, who have recently declared its cut off list, said that even though it accepted the new guidelines, it will not change its existing ones.

Karen Gabriel, spokesperson, St. Stephen’s said “Students who have opted for Informatics Practices in their best of four subjects can contact the college. If they are clearing cut offs due to this change, we will incorporate their names for the interview”.

DU has also decided that functional English will be on par with other English courses and students who have opted for this curse will not suffer any sort of disadvantage.
