DU’s ‘Centenary Chance Examination’ For College Dropouts to Begin From Sunday, October 16

The first “centenary chance examination” of the Delhi University (DU) will start on Sunday, October 16 with more than 1,850 students set to appear on the first day of the test, which aims at allowing those who missed out on their degrees to complete their studies.

More than 8,560 students have applied to appear in the centenary chance examination, as stated in a report by PTI.

Details of the examination

The drop-out students have been given this one chance in view of DU’s year-long centenary celebrations that started on May 1. Eligible candidates can appear for a maximum of four papers in the annual mode and up to eight papers for semester-wise tests.

It will be held for theory and practical examination and not for internal assessment. Dean of Examination DS Rawat told PTI that the exams will be conducted from October 16 to November 9.

The exams will be held at two centres — the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Sciences. “The exams would be conducted in two shifts on Sunday. More than 1,850 students will appear in the exams in both shifts. As many as 950 students will write the exam in the Faculty of Arts and 920 in the Faculty of Social Sciences,” Rawat said. In each shift, the examinations for 18 papers will be conducted, he added.

DU had announced in May that those who dropped out of college in the final year can register for this one chance to appear in examinations and complete their degree. The university will hold another round of examinations in March next year.
