The four-year plan with multiple degree options and multiple exit points is transparent and democratic. It is not about a year of delay in graduation; it is about increasing a year of education.



Rittik Mitra
The four-year course will just add an extra year to the undergraduate course. It’s just extending the curriculum by another year - pointless.

Sharika Vijh
After the semester system, Delhi University now has something new to offer. The four-year programme looks uncertain to both the teachers as well as to the students. I think DU should analyse all the pros and cons of this system.

Himanshu Sharma
The purpose of the four-year pattern is likely to destroy the credibility of the undergraduate course. The first two years will be spent on dabbling in new subjects. A diploma will thus be a jack of all trades but master of none.

-As told to R Nandini
