University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked the universities to recognize CBSE offered computer courses for the upcoming session. UGC has taken this step for the students who have studied Informatics practices in class 12th and are facing difficulties in getting admission to undergraduate courses.
CBSE offers three computer based courses namely Computer Science, Informatics Practices and Multimedia & Web Technology to the class 11 and 12 students. The three subjects offered under the academic scheme have curriculum specifications compatible with science subjects having both the theory and practical parts.
UGC said in a letter to Vice chancellors of universities that important consideration may be accorded while admitting the students to undergraduate courses. UGC requested the universities to take appropriate steps for the recognition of these subjects. This communication by UGC came up after a request made by CBSE to issue instructions to universities regarding the troubles faced by the CBSE students to take admission in the under graduate courses.
The matter was raised by the students and parents in the previous years too when the Delhi University (DU) announced to deduct 2.5 % from the aggregate marks of students who opted for Informatics Practices. However, during the last cut-off issued in 2014, the guideline has been termed as unfair and discriminatory by the CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi.
