Unhappy with the results announced based on the relative grading system under the newly implemented Choice Based Credit Scheme (CBCS), a group of Delhi University students on Wednesday held a protest and said that the new system does not take individual performances into account.

“Mathematics is not a subjective paper. If you get an answer then it is either right or wrong and marks are given based on that. But in my class the maximum SGPA is 8.6. Surprisingly in papers, which are subjective, students have scored 9.9 SGPA. Conversion of marks to grade is vague,” said Nikita, a first-year student at Lady Shri Ram College.

Students said the new marking system does not take individual performances into account but the university awards grades on the basis of the average score.

Students along with members of Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) staged a demonstration on the north campus demanding re-evaluation as well as a review of the new grading system. The students also met deputy dean of students welfare, Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, and submitted him their demands. Tuteja, however, was not available for comment.
