Around 2 lakh DU students to appear in online exams from today
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Nearly two lakh final semester undergraduate and postgraduate students are expected to take the online open book exams in Delhi University that will commence from Monday.
The examination branch officials held a meeting on Sunday with the college principals and nodal officers to discuss the modalities of evaluation and results, DS Rawat, Dean(Examinations) said.
"The meeting was held to discuss how to tackle the issues that arise. We want to start the evaluation process on Tuesday. Earlier, the process would start late. The papers will be held in two shifts -- 9 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 5 pm," he said.
The next day, officials will allot the examination sheets to teachers with a deadline to finish evaluating them. The principals will also be given a list of the teachers evaluating the sheets so that they can track the progress, he said. "The results usually take three months. For courses that have less number of students, the results can be finalised early," he said. Rawat said that he also told the principals that they can give ''confidential results" to students in case they have to submit them to foreign universities for admission.
"Usually, the last date for submission of results in universities is July 31 so in case some student needs the result, they can give us documentary evidence and write to us and we will give them the result," he said. The official said that last time, there was a university that was not accepting the confidential result of a student. "The student informed us and I wrote a personal email with my credentials and the varsity subsequently accepted it," he added.
