A clock will appear to showcase the remaining time after downloading the question paper. However, the question paper will release as per the scheduled examination in the date sheet.
In case of any issue, the students are required to contact the college faculty. Hence, the college will send the question paper to the student on the registered email id or message on the phone number.

Hence, for the Divyaang or the physically disabled, the time limit is 6 hours. The examination time will include three hours for answering the questions and one additional hour for IT related activities such as downloading the question paper, scanning and uploading the answer sheets.
- Answering the question paper:
Students are guided to write the answers to the questions on A-4 size sheets in own handwriting (ruled or plain). They will write page numbers on each page. However, the answers are to be written using a black or a blue pen only. Hence, Students will write their Date and Time of Examination, Examination Roll Number, Program Name, Semester, Unique Paper Code, Title of the Paper, Name of the College, Email-Id of the student, Mobile number of student, on the first sheet used for answers. This has to be repeated for the front page of each answer.
Each answer will be uploaded separately on the OBE portal under the designated question number. A file has to be made for each answer, question wise. Hence, it should not exceed the given limit of 7 MB. Also, the format should be a JPG or PDF. Students are advised to ensure that all the answers are submitted question wise. Upload option will be available next to each answer.
In case if by mistake, a student uploads a wrong answer sheet they can make corrections with in the specified duration of the OBE i.e. four hours for students other than the Divyaang and six hours for Divyaang. However, once the answer sheets are submitted and the student logs out, no change in the uploaded answer sheets will be possible.
