DU Admission 2018 - Moderation Policy is likely to be implemented for all the applicants of State and National Boards. This would be done to treat all the applicants equally while analysing the marks achieved by them for admission in different undergraduate courses. This would be done from the coming academic session.
55 Examination boards would be sent letters by the Delhi University, which would include the information regarding the moderation policy followed by them. Moderation policy is actually a practice in which students are awarded extra marks for comparatively difficult questions in any subject. It is also done when there will be the difference in the difficulty level of the question paper for different sets.

DU to adapt normalisation policy- Why the Step has been Taken?
The members of the admission committee said that it will help them to understand that what parameters are taken by different boards while distributing marks to students of that board. They will be forming a committee that will analyse the replies given by different boards. Admission Committee will be writing around 55 boards from where applicants come and they will ask them to explain the moderation policy followed by them while awarding marks to students
One of the members of the Admission Committee said that the committee will suggest the conditions for the normalisation of marks so that the different board applicants will come on the same level. Mainly the step has been taken to ensure that the university may come out with more realistic cutoffs.
What Officials have to say about Adapting Normalisation Policy by DU
As per the officials, this moderation will give a fair chance to all the students of different boards. As per now, the University accepts the same marks as allotted by the different boards. But it becomes difficult for the students as some Boards follow easy marking while checking the answer sheets, so even the average students get good marks.
By this method, these students fulfil the cut-off very easily while the deserving candidate from another board will not be able to maintain the same marks, due to the difference in marking method. The officials said that for now, they are not in the state to tell that what kind of normalisation methods will be used.
It will be decided after going through the responses and replies of different boards on their marking scheme and moderation policy. The Human Resource Ministry has also asked the Boards for the explanation of moderation policy, but all the boards have not replied on this. The online application process for DU admissions for undergraduate courses will start in May end or by the first week of June 2018.
