The University of Delhi has issued guidelines for open book exams which will start from November 30, which state that students who have opted for the physical mode can also take the exam from their homes. However, those who have opted for the online exam mode, cannot choose the physical exam mode.
The deadline for filling out exam forms is Nov. 18, and it could be extended, according to an official. The guidelines stipulated that colleges should upload cell phone numbers and email id of node agents on the college’s website so that students can reach them if they have any questions during the exam.
Students were given two options – physical mode (from college) and remote mode (from home) using ICT-based facilities. “Those who have opted for the option of taking the exam in physical mode will have the choice to take it in remote mode but not the other way around. The college will provide the necessary infrastructure in accordance with MHA, UGC guidelines in view of Covid – 19 “, the directives indicated.
Students must have all the facilities of the college to take the open book exam in physical mode. They will need to bring their own A4 size sheets. The duration of the exam will be four hours, including one hour to scan the answer sheet in PDF / JPEG format and upload it to the portal. Students with disabilities will have six hours.
If students encounter technical issues while uploading their answer sheets, they can submit their answer sheet beyond the allotted time frame with documentary evidence for which an additional hour will be allowed.
Late submission cases will be referred to the review committee and their assessment will depend on the committee’s decision, according to the guidelines. Late submission could also cause a delay in reporting results for these applicants. In a related development, the Non-College Women’s Education Council (NCWEB) has postponed third and fifth semester student exams until further notice. Examinations were scheduled to start on November 30.
The NCWEB is a non-formal University of Delhi graduation system with classes taught only on weekends. Only female students residing in the National Capital Territory of Delhi can register as board students.
