The examinations for the students of Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (SOL) is scheduled to begin on November 24, 2016. Students of MA Political Science received datasheets for the examination on November 21, 2016, and they are in a scramble. They received the examination schedule only three days before the examination.
The students have written to Vice Chancellor of DU requesting him to postpone the exams as they do not have enough time to prepare for exams. The students had got exam sheets just four days before examinations last year too.

The students of MA Political Science panicked as soon as they saw the examination schedule. The students met the SOL authorities and requested them to reschedule the exams, and they did not respond properly. SOL has been causing trouble for students since the past two to three years. They have been announcing untimely date sheets and consequently, most students fail in exams. It is quite clear that administration at SOL is not up to the mark. The exams dates were supposed to be released three to four weeks in advance.
