Amid lockdown announced in the country, the University of Delhi is preparing to conduct exams online.
As the lockdown has been extended till May 3, the DU computer centre has been asked to come up with a platform to conduct the semester examinations in online mode.
According to a media report, the DUCC official was quoted saying, “We have received instructions from the top brass and have started to explore options on this. We are seeing if we need to bring up a smartphone application for it or the website can work.”
Though this has been in the planning phase, however, the final decision in this regard will be taken after the committee formed by the UGC and MHRD.
The report further quoted Vinay Gupta, Dean of DU’s Examination Centre, saying, “We see online examinations as the only way to conduct examinations, especially in times when students should not leave their houses. But the final decision can only be taken after committees report.”
