The Delhi University (DU) has decided to promote all the second-year students enrolled under the Four-Year Undergraduate Program (FYUP) and failed in the exams to the third year.
University officials said the decision was taken to ensure the smooth functioning of the FYUP batch.
This year, DU will teach three different academic structures to its students.
"There is only one batch of FYUP and hence for practical reasons they have all been promoted to the final year. It would have become difficult to manage a separate batch of failed students. The FYUP students who have failed will study with their own batch and will repeat their exams next year," said an official on condition of anonymity.
The university in a notice has said that students who had failed in the second year examinations of FYUP courses in the academic session 2014-2015 have been allowed to move to the third year of the respective course in the academic session 2015-2016 as regular students.
But these students will have to pass all the papers in the final year. "Such students will have to clear their III and IV semester examination along with the V and VI semester examinations respectively," the notification said.
FYUP was introduced in 2013-2014 but was rolled back a year later after which the previous semester system was put back in place. However, the 2013-2014 batches continued to study under the restructured FYUP.
