Delhi University has decided to conduct an open book examination for the final year students from 10 August 2020. However, DU students and teachers have been valiantly raising their voice against the Delhi University’s choice to direct online OBE for the final year students.
DU students have directed Twitter storms, kept in touch with the specialists, and even moved court. Without a doubt, they were distinctly trusting that the Delhi High Court will articulate its judgment on the issue on Friday.
On Friday 7th August, Delhi High Court ultimately allowed Delhi University to conduct its online OBE for final year DU students. However, DU students are extremely disappointed with the court decision. Astha, a student expressed that this is a by and large infringement of the privilege to uniformity. The sacredness of examination is as yet not tended to. In any case, after the MHA intercession, they expected that the HC won’t conflict with it. The confidence of students in the legal executive is totally broken.
A student who was instrumental in forming a committee to exclusively fight the OBE, Pallavi Raj, expressed her disappointment. This is so unsettling to hear that the DU is so hesitant to consider the supplication of students who battled for the benefit of most of the DU students. The conduction of an online OBE would not lessen the current issues and the person who can’t give the test need to give it later in September.
Despite the fact that the ABVP-ruled DUSU kept mum on the issue and the judgment, Ashish Lambs, the sole NSUI representative rushed to responded that NSUI has consistently protested the OBE. Delhi University was ineffective in leading the mock tests appropriately. How would we at that point anticipate that they should direct the exams online? Students earlier complaints against website crash during mock exams. The DUTA or Delhi University Teacher’s Union is too disappointed with the judgment.
