If you want to study commerce at Delhi University but hate math, there’s no need to be distressed.
Mathematics will no longer be mandatory for students pursuing an honours degree in commerce, much to the delight of those who did not have the subject in Class 12.
The university had been deliberating on the issue for a long time and a final decision was taken on Wednesday.
“Till last year, most colleges were not accepting students in the honours programme for commerce without mathematics. Consequently, a large number of students were deprived of admission in different colleges. It has now been decided that the requirement of mathematics for all categories of students will be removed for admission to bachelor with honours in commerce,” a DU statement said.
