“The distribution of internal assessment marks shall be as follows: attendance (lectures including interactive periods and tutorials) (5%) written assignments/tutorials/project reports/ seminars (10%) and class test(s)/quiz(s) (10%),” the notification added.

According to the health bulletin released by the Delhi government, the city added 865 new Covid cases to its tally on Thursday. It had recorded 1,109 cases on Wednesday and 628 and 874 single-day infections on Monday and Tuesday.

Delhi has reported a few cases of BA.4 and BA.5 variants of Omicron, which are highly transmissible, but experts have said that there is no need to panic as they don’t cause severe infection.

DU had reopened for in-person classes on February 17 after remaining shut for two years after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In-person practical sessions for third-year students had resumed last year, but the university was shut again because of the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases in December.
