Protest against Paper no. 5 (Macro-economics) for B.A. Honours Economics 2nd year
Respected Vice Chancellor (Delhi University),
The annual examinations for B.A. Honours Economics Second Year are being held from 7th April-3rd May 2010. Paper no. 5 i.e. Macro-economics was held on 24th April 2010. The question paper left many students stumped as most questions were of a higher difficulty level that previous years'. The guideines set for the paper did not mention that questions of such a tougher level could be asked and also the questions that were asked were neither from the textbook, nor from the previous years' papers.
Also, the paper had an excess of theoretical and conceptual questions which led to most students facing time constraints and a majority could not complete their paper on time. We request you to convene a meeting with the student body as well as teachers at the earliest to determine the final outcome i.e. whether a re-exam will be conducted or whether marking will be lenient.
The sentiments echoed here are representative of a majority of Delhi University students and we demand immediate corrective action to be taken.
NOTE - For all those who are signing the petition, please mention your name and college name so that the university knows that everyone faced the same problems.
