There is a rush of students everywhere to seek admission in any of the so many renowned colleges, university or institutes across the nation. But what plays the major role in the status of these educational institutions is the NAAC grading. The National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) is an autonomous body of University Grants Commission (UGC). The highest grade that the body gives is of A++. The Accreditation Results of institutions approved by the 24th Standing Committee was released on May 02, 2017.
As per the latest rankings 3 Delhi University colleges have made their way in the Cycle 1. This includes: Daulat Ram College, Miranda House, Shyam Lal College (Day). While the Daulat Ram College has secured A Grade, Miranda House has secured A+ and Shyam Lal, grade of B+. Tested on parameters such as curriculum, teaching learning, evaluation, faculty research, infrastructure, learning resources, governance and student services, only three out of the 62 colleges secured the second grade of A+. Daulat Ram College, Miranda House, Shyam Lal College (Day) have scored 3.36, 3.61 and 2.62 points, respectively. To get A++ an institution has to score a grade from 3.76 to 4.
These scores are valid for five years after which the colleges will again have to apply for accreditation. It was in 2012 that UGC made accreditation compulsory for higher educational institutions. Once an institution applies for the accreditation, a peer team from NAAC visits the colleges for 3-4 days and interacts with teachers, students, alumni and all stakeholders of the institution. It is a very systematic process which is comprehensive and some of which is even video recorded.
