OBE, Open Book Examination is the biggest threat for every Delhi University students. The students of Faculty of Law, DU, have asked the Bar Council of India for intervention against OBE. For all final year students, DU scheduled OBE from 10 August onwards.
As part of this, the students are encouraging the larger community to send mass emails to the Bar Council. According to a statement from the students, they say that this is presently the only possibility available to them. The pandemic has not been lenient to academic activities either.
In these trying times, the conclusion of the University of Delhi to conduct online Open Book Exams for final year students has greatly added to the sorrows of students. Through this email, the Students of the Faculty of Law request the Council to meddle in the interests of law students community, reads the email.
Also, they told the reasons why OBE won’t work for them. The Faculty of Law follows the casebook method and thus the case material, which is given by the Faculty to students against a special fee charged by it, serves as the root of study, say the students.
Despite making the payment, the case materials were not provided due to an administrative holdup. They also say that a lot of them do not have the study material and others do not have the mandatory equipment or access to technology to appear for the exam. They have also stressed a mass promotion, keeping the pandemic problem in mind.
