KU relaxes rules for admission to PG courses in Leh campus

The Kashmir University (KU) has relaxed rules for admission in the varsity’s Leh campus, which has failed to attract students for post-graduation courses.

The Deputy Registrar Academic, KU, has shot a communication to Rector, Leh campus, informing him that the Vice-Chancellor has cleared relaxation in rules for enrollment in PG courses, in English and Geology, at the campus. The rules have been relaxed on the basis of recommendation by the Rector, and keeping in view less number of students opting for the PG courses at the satellite campus.

“The vice-chancellor in view of the fact that there are less number of applicants available and on the basis of your recommendations has been pleased to authorise grant of admission as a special case in relaxation of rules for students who want to pursue MA English and M.Sc Geology programs at the satellite campuses Leh,” reads the letter sent to Rector Leh on May 16.

The students will now be eligible to pursue the PG courses in these two subjects, without passing in relevant subject at graduation level.

The candidates should however have passed the relevant subject as additional subjects within stipulated period of two years, reads the letter.

The communication also states that the result of the students opting for PG courses in English and Geology will not be made public unless they qualify the additional subject.
