Delhi University undergraduate students who took admission in 2013 and 2014 and failed in their third and second years will be promoted to their final years as a special case. They will have to clear all their pending papers, however, if they want to graduate next year, the university said in a notification issued Wednesday.
The decision was taken to ensure that students who were not part of the credit based system, introduced in 2015, don’t get stuck with it. Students who took admission in 2013 were under the Four Year Undergraduate Programme. The students who failed in third year will be promoted to the fourth year.
