Technical glitches lead to postponement distance education exam again
MUMBAI [Maha Media]: For the second day in a row, exams for the University of Mumbai’s distance education wing had to be postponed. On Tuesday, close to 9,000 students of Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) had their TYBCom and TYBA exams scheduled but more than 90% could not access the exam link to be able to appear for the paper. After receiving flak from students, many of whom also gathered at the university’s Kalina campus on Tuesday evening, IDOL released a statement postponing the day’s exam due to “technical reasons”.
Saturday was the first exam for IDOL students and many could not access the exam link or even worse, did not receive the exam link via emails either. Many took to Twitter to share their growing anxiety on Tuesday.
