Around 35,000 students take DU's online open-book exams
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Nearly 35,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students took the online open-book exams of the Delhi University (DU) on Monday and no technical glitches were reported, officials said. Monday was the first day of the exams and the officials said all the 35,000 students uploaded their answer-sheets using the portal and there were no email submissions. DS Rawat, Dean (Examinations), said the process went off smoothly and there were no complaints of any technical glitches.
Last year, when the OBE was held for the first time, students had complained about failure to submit answer-sheets, problems in downloading question papers and other issues. Some had also said they were grappling with COVID-19 in the family and would not be in the right frame of mind to appear for the exams, but Rawat said most of the students wanted to finish their academics. Arpita, a third-year BA student, said, "The process went off smoothly. One of our classmates encountered issues while uploading the answer-sheets but in the end, he was also able to upload those."
