The semester-end exams may be less than a week away, but students at Delhi University (DU) are yet to get their admit cards. This is for the first time that students of all undergraduate courses will appear for exams under the semester system and many are yet to register the fact that they will need admit cards. “We never needed any admit card for mid-year exams. Why will we need them now,” said Ayushi Saxena, a student of BCom at Gargi College.

The exam branch of DU on Wednesday said the admit cards, which have roll numbers of the students, had been sent to colleges on Wednesday but the CD that has to be sent along with the cards will be sent only by tomorrow. The preparatory leave starts on Saturday.

“We will send all the material by Thursday. After that the colleges will distribute the cards to students,” said RC Sharma, dean, Examinations. Admit cards, however, are not the only problem being faced by the students. Though the exams start on Wednesday, most are complaining that the syllabus is still incomplete.

“We have to blindly mug up some chapters. The teachers have not been able to complete the course. I don’t feel confident at all,” said Chandan Saha, a first year student at Ramjas College. The preparatory leave is also shorter this time around, with students getting only three days leave before the exams start.
