To reduce burden and fill up vacant seats after the first cutoff, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) has proposed to enrol students through lottery for the new four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP). Delhi University is yet to approve this recommendation. The college has 252 seats in BCom (H), but admits around 300 pupils every year owing to college’s admission policy and dropout rate. With FYUP, the number of students studying BCom(H) in the college at a time (three-year degree) will go up from 900 to 1200.

As renowned academicians put it, learning is a continuous activity and it has no limitation of age and sex. Learning or education is universal in character. If that is so, then academic activity should be global. With education being global, it ushers in an era of exchange of ideas and knowledge between experts who are spread over various parts of the globe.
Consolidation of the findings of these experts will bring in something which is good for the universe. Now, this process of learning through exchange of idea between persons who are located in different parts of the globe has become easier, thanks to the revolutionary improvements in the field of travel and communication. Now, with the introduction of internet, communication has become much faster and more reliable than ever before.

A teacher is often referred to a a Friend, Guide and Philosopher. Not enough! Teaching is considered to be the noblest of all professions. A teacher builds the foundation of his students as the future citizens of the country.
An ideal teacher should have a good personality and abundant knowledge. He should know the psychology of students and also their individual problems. Knowledge is ever growing and so an ideal teacher should always prepare his lesions before he enters the class.
An ideal teacher should be a man of character. He should be impressive. He should be a man of service and sacrifice. He should have equal affection for all his students. He should be diligent and dutiful.
An ideal teacher is devoted to his work. Only those with an aptitude for teaching would prove to be ideal teacher. It is said that a nation’s future is shaped in its classrooms, and the man who shapes it is the teacher. A school teacher is said to be worth a thousand preachers.
The ideal teacher is creative, insightful, informative, and encourages students to solve their problems through deductive reasoning.
An ideal teacher displays extreme simplicity inspite of his extra ordinary academic attainments. He dedicates his whole life to the cause of education. He never allows his students to be idle or indisciplined. The vastness of his knowledge deeply impresses every student but an ideal teacher is never proud of it. An ideal teacher is busy with his books and quest for some knowledge even after he gets retired. In fact, ideal teachers never get retired since, with age, their depth of information and knowledge goes on increasing.
What are the qualities of a good teacher?
A teacher’s responsibility towards a child is probably more than that of the parents. This is primarily because the child just doesn’t receive education from the school where he or she studies, but also learns the value systems from the same people. Teaching is a career that provides challenges, excitement, personal reward and a chance to encourage and support others to achieve their goals.
There are many personal qualities and skills that make someone a good teacher.
- being good at explaining things;
- being a people person and enjoy working with a wide range of people;
- having a strong knowledge in particular subject areas;
- being a good time manager;
- ability to work in a team as well as using your own initiative;
- keeping your cool under pressure;
- having patience and a good sense of humour;
- being fair-minded;
- coping well with change; and
- enjoying a challenge.
Good teachers know that by listening to and working with colleagues, parents, other professionals and community members that they can inspire students and improve their learning.
Teachers are always a boon to society.
Through their intelligence, patience and wisdom, they attempt to not only hone the learner’s intellect and aptitude but also, create a well-rounded personality. Teaching has an influence in developing ones mind and character and also gives the satisfaction of having sparked the light of knowledge and dispelled the clouds of ignorance.
How to prepare for the examination?
Where there is a will, there is a way; this adage is self explanatory. If you have the will you will certainly take the bull by horn, I mean your examination. There will be instances where for various reasons you fail to devote enough time for your studies. It may be the illness, or some compelling family issues or you were busy with some other activities. Whatever is the reason, you will get to a situation where there is little time for you to prepare and perhaps I may call it you are in a state of zero preparation for the examination. You start to worry and panic grips your mind and your self confidence seldom works. This situation even affects your results.
But a matter of advice from me, never panic. As the adage I mentioned above says there will be a way and all that matters is how you are able to address the situation. Just consider these suggestions and perhaps that would do the trick.
Keep your head up:
Keep cool and never panic. I am sure you are aware that in a situation of panic, confusion over-rides you and in the bargain you lose confidence. There are instances when people have prepared just few hours before the examination and they have come out successfully. Perhaps you can be one among them if you remain calm and plan suitably.
