The commerce students who have applied for a commerce seat in Delhi University colleges will not have to face a 2% decrease in case accountancy is not included in their best four subjects. Management will only check for the criteria that the candidate have studied and qualified in accountancy in their Class 12 exam.
In the new uniform criteria, accountancy will be considered in place of commerce as many boards including CBSE do not mention a commerce stream in their class 12 prospectus.
The Open Houses organized by the university have always mentioned that accountancy will be considered same as commerce in the school level and if the students do not have accountancy in the best of four subjects, they won’t be losing their 2%. Only by qualifying in the accountancy subject, the student can opt for commerce without facing 2% lose during the admissions in any of the colleges affiliated to Delhi University, confirmed a senior official of dean of the students’ welfare office. It won’t be an issue if accountancy is not counted in candidate’s best of four subjects score.
