The Delhi University will administer the online open book examinations for final year undergraduate and postgraduate students from August 10 to August 31, it said on Wednesday.
However, DU said, pupils unable to appear in the exams in August will get another alternative.
The varsity had notified the Delhi High Court last week that it has agreed to postpone the Open Book Examinations (OBE), planned from July 10, for final year undergraduate courses to next month.
In a notification issued on Wednesday, DU said it will accomplish the examinations for the final semester/term/year students of all undergraduate and postgraduate courses, incorporating in the School of Open Learning and Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board, starting from 10th August in the OBE pattern.
DU OBE Datesheet
The ultimate datasheets for undergraduate and postgraduate courses will be accessible on the official website of the university by July 16 and July 22, respectively.
For those pupils who for any reason are not able to sit in the examinations in OBE mode remotely, the university has instructed to conduct an additional phase of examinations in OBE mode through online/offline/blended device, the notification said.
This special dispensation is being made as a one-time criterion for the comfort of such students who are unable to join in the examination scheduled to begin from August 10, it announced.
OBE Exam Results
The examinations will be performed after about two weeks from the date of the conclusion of the OBE mode tests. The pupils under the PWD category, including the visually impaired students who have occurred for the OBE remotely, and who wish to enhance their grades will be given an opportunity in these examinations.
The best marks maintained by the PWD students based on these two examinations will be taken into an appreciation for the preparation of results. Mock tests will be held ahead of the planned final exams in two phases so that students can familiarise themselves with the exam format.
The first stage will be held between July 27 and July 29, while the following stage from August 1 to August 4. The Delhi University had last month suspended the online open book exams for final-year students, which were recorded to begin from July 1, by 10 days in view of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
