Class XI-XII students who have chosen Computer Science and are not from Science stream will have to face some difficulty if they want to study Computer Science (Hons) from Delhi University (DU). University’s recent announcement on the same says that students will have to face a 2 per cent deduction for each subject if, besides English, they add any other Humanities or Commerce subject in their best-of-four calculation.
An Indian Express report says that DU guidelines allow students to study BSc (Hons) Computer Science if they have Mathematics and Computer Science in their XII course. Though is it not compulsory to add subjects in the best-of-four calculation, but scoring at least 60 per cent or more in Mathematics is necessary. The information bulletin of the varsity states that selection for the course will be made on students’ best-of-four subjects which should include one language, Mathematics and any two subjects out of Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Informatics Practices.
“Students from other streams need to include one language, Mathematics, and two other academic subjects. But they will face a deduction of 2 per cent,” says the bulletin. Speaking to Indian Express, a senior university official informed that the announcement has been made as the colleges which offer such courses had passed a resolution demanding the same in their Course Committee. The details of the notification have been submitted to the Admission Committee.

This was for the second time that registrations were rescheduled. Now the online registration for Masters, MPhil and PhD courses will take place on June 12.
