DU to allow students participating in Republic Day to sit for missed exams

January 18, 2024

Delhi University has announced a special provision for students participating in the Republic Day parade, allowing them a unique opportunity to make up for missed exams. This initiative aims to ensure that the academic progress of students representing the university at prestigious national events remains uninterrupted.

According to Ajay Arora, the OSD examination, the university is contemplating extending a similar concession to students who excel in national and international sports events, such as the Olympics. This forward-thinking approach underscores the university’s commitment to nurturing holistic development and recognizing achievements beyond the academic sphere.

In particular, final-year students involved in the Republic Day parade as part of the Delhi contingent of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) will be granted this special chance. The move is designed to prevent any delays in their academic journey, ensuring that they receive their degrees on schedule. Ajay Arora emphasized that the university may also extend this opportunity to first and second-year students in the parade, contingent upon assessing the number of students requiring such flexibility.

A dedicated datesheet for these special exams will be released soon, taking into account the students’ schedules to avoid any clashes with other examinations. The university aims to create an environment that encourages students to participate in events beyond the classroom, fostering experiential learning and a broader perspective. Ajay Arora highlighted the importance of such experiences in instilling a sense of nationalism in the younger generation.

This year’s Republic Day parade will feature 2,274 cadets, including those from Delhi University representing the Delhi Contingent in the NCC march past. Notably, a record-breaking 907 girl cadets will also participate in the parade, reflecting the increasing inclusivity and diversity in such national events.
