Dev Samaj outdoes other colleges

The results of B Com I, II and III year declared by Panjab University recently are quite revealing about the performance of the various city colleges. The results are supposedly an eye-opener to GGDSD College, Sector 32, and DAV College, Sector 10, which have always claimed to secure the best result in Commerce courses. These two colleges are pushed to seventh and last positions respectively.

According to the data made available by the Principal, Pahlad Aggarwal of Government College, 11, it is Dev Samaj College for Women, Sector 45, which has topped the chart while surprisingly the much-reputed DAV College has been put at last.

The data claims that Dev Samaj pass percentage for three years is 97.88 and close to Dev Samaj is Government College, 46, by securing a percentage 97.39. In this race, Government College for Girls, Sector 11, stood third by securing 96.46 per cent and fourth position is of Government College for Girls, 42, with the pass percentage of 96.16.

Government College, Sector 11, secured fifth position in the commerce course with the pass percentage of 95.68 and MCM DAV College, 36, secured 95.52. GGDSD College, Sector 32, with the average of 95.2 stood seventh and Guru Gobind Singh College for Women, Sector 26, has an eighth position with 94.59. Guru Gobind Singh College, Sector 26 with the average of 93.95 secured ninth position and DAV College, Sector 10, stood 10th with 93.67.

Mr Pahlad Aggrawal, who had put a lot of efforts in collecting the figures said: "I was myself surprised by the finding. I had never foreseen that Dev Samaj College will beat other reputed colleges to bag the first position".

Colleges witness admission rush

City colleges witnessed frenzied activity as hundreds of students lined up to seek admissions to various professional and academic courses being offered by them. The admission process began today.

While all BCom seats at GGDSD College, Sector 32, MCM DAV College for Women, Sector 36, DAV College, Sector 10, and SGGS College, Sector 26, were filled on the first day itself, a few seats are stated to be available at Dev Samaj College for Women, Sector 45, Government College, Sector 11, and Government Colleges for Girls in Sectors 11 and 42.

Bachelor of Commerce is one of the most sought-after courses. The cut-off percentage for this course in GGDSD College was 84.8 per cent, while it was 74.8 per cent at SGGS College, 78 per cent at GC-11, 77 per cent at Dev Samaj College and 73.8 per cent at DAV College. Both MCM and GCG-11 reported a cut-off of 86 per cent.

At GGDSD College, which is offering the maximum number of professional courses, seats in all streams have been filled. The cut-off in BSc (Computer Applications) and BSc (Information Technology) was 65 per cent, while for BSc (Biotechnology), it was 75 per cent. No other college in the city is presently offering these three courses.

“The response to all our courses is astonishing. The number of students seeking admission is beyond our expectations,” Dr A.C. Vaid, the college Principal, remarked. “A large number of students from neighbouring states are also flocking to the city for education,” he added.

As far as the Bachelor of Computer Applications course is concerned, Dev Samaj and MCM reported the highest cut-off of 82.6 pr cent and 78 per cent, respectively. The lowest cut-off was 58 per cent at GC-11.

For Bachelor of Business Administration, the cut-off was 75 per cent at GGDSD College, followed by 70.2 per cent at DAV College, while GC-11 trailed far behind with a cut-off of just 52 per cent.

For MSc (Information Technology), which is being offered only by GGDSD College and DAV College, the cut-off was 71.3 per cent and 70 per cent, while for MCom, which is again being offered only by these two colleges, the cut-off was 75.63 per cent for GGDSD College and 66.64 for DAV College.

Besides local youths, students from all over the region had come to seek admission to city colleges. Hundreds of students had to return home as they failed to make it to the merit lists. “While the aspirations of students are no doubt high, the competition is equally tough”, a teacher remarked. “For instance, between 85-87 per cent, there are 14 students for a particular stream,” he added.

Those who could not get a seat today were busy inquiring about the possibility of a seat getting vacant or about the next round of counselling.

For the college staff, too, it was a trying day as they had to patiently check and cross-check records, verify documents, guide students and their parents, answer queries and manage crowds.

Even the roads and grounds around the institutes were full of parked vehicles, which at a few instances created a traffic jam.

In MCM DAV, Rauchi Kaushal won the election uncontested, while Nidhi Bishnoi was elected as vice-president, Satwinder Kaur Makkar secretary and Shefali Kularia joint secretary.

Polling at SGGS Khalsa College, Sector 26, witnessed a lathi charge by the police. The losing presidential candidate, Sunil Kumar, said he was beaten up by the police while protesting against the college for not having allowed his supporters to enter the campus despite having I-cards. The college authorities said the cards were not properly attested. Ranbir Singh Grewal won the elections. The “harassed” candidates forwarded a letter to the office of the Vice-Chancellor and said they would approach the court. Students alleged “partial” behaviour by the college authorities, which has been vehemently denied.

SECTION 2: CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
As an affiliated college of Panjab University, Chandigarh, the college follows the syllabi and schemes of examination prescribed by the University for all the faculties of undergraduate courses. Being a Degree College, it offers 03 UG programmes: B.A., B.Com. with Hons and B.C.A. For keeping pace with the changing demands of the society and for providing job-oriented programmes, periodic attempts are made to introduce new courses in the curriculum. The college has been running career-oriented courses of Office Management & Secretarial Practice and Fashion Designing in the Arts Faculty. Two Add-on-Courses, sanctioned by the UGC, have also been introduced in this session (2004-2005), namely, Cosmetology and Event Management. Being an affiliated college there is limited scope for formulation and implementation of new course. The college has recently attempted to start two add-on courses however, in view of low enrollment ratio in most of the courses the college needs to review its academic offerings. To introduce a new programme within the regulations of the present university system, the college takes one full session. The curriculum does not allow for vertical or horizontal mobility. However, students have options for elective courses, add-on and vocational courses.

The courses offered are well balanced and there is an adequate number of choice in opting for subjects. The teachers of the college participate in revising, upgrading and restructuring the syllabuses by sending suggestions to the Board of Studies of the University. At present, 04 teachers are members of the Board of Studies of the University. Besides the academic curricula, the college also seeks to serve the society by imparting value education to the students- a unique and distinctive feature of the college.

The component of knowledge and skill in the UG programmes is 50 :50% for BCA. 70 and 30% for B.com and 50:50% for physical education and music (Vocal and Instrumental ) respectively. Academic audit by the university was conducted in the year 2002, but the report of the same has not been received so far.

CRITERION II: TEACHING LEARNING AND EVALUATION
The institution follows a transparent procedure for admission to the various courses. The students are selected on the basis of merit and according to the norms of the Panjab University, Chandigarh. The University guidelines provide special considerations for students of the minority community, physically challenged students, sportsperson, children of ex-servicemen and economically disadvantaged.

At the beginning of the session a meeting is held by each department and the teachers make term wise teaching plan. Post admission, there is no assessment of students to judge their knowledge and skills. But as per the university norms, there is provision for assessing students twice in an academic session through the process of house examinations. Special tests are also conducted in the month of February for weak students. In courses where skill development is necessary, students are given special training and are expected to submit a project report post internship.

Students are exposed to the latest trends by organizing seminars, workshops, group discussions etc and the members of the faculty also update their knowledge through reading, attending seminars, workshops and refresher courses. Limited use is made of audio-visual aids like OHP,DVD,CDs to supplement classroom teaching. Though formalized system of bridge or remedial courses does not exist, the faculty members pay individual attention to the academically advanced learners as well as educationally disadvantaged students. The annual results of the college are quite appreciable.

The college has 43 faculty members, out of which 18 are on the permanent roll, 21 temporary and 04 on a part-time basis. The permanent teaching staff are recruited strictly according to the norms of the University /DPI/UGC by a selection committee whenever there are vacancies. When a new subject/course is introduced or workload in the existing subjects/courses increases, posts are created as per the requirement as part-time and guest faculty. The college has freedom and resources to appoint temporary/part-time teaching staff with due permission of the management.

It is suggested that the lecturers in add-on courses should be fully qualified or they should be encouraged to acquire the requisite qualifications.
