The final year (semester) OBE examination of UG-PG level in Delhi University is to start from June 7. Where the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) is seeking to extend the duration of the examination. At the same time, CYSAS has demanded to give one more chance to those who cannot take the exam in June. At the same time, AISA has asked the Vice-Chancellor to cancel the examination by sending a joint mail of the students.
A joint delegation of DUSU and ABVP has met the Dean Examination Branch Prof. CS Rawat for the OBE examination demanding that the duration of the exam be extended by 30 minutes. Moreover, one more chance should be given to students who will not be able to attempt the exam in June. Also, a centralized portal should be developed for the availability of notes and other study material.
On Tuesday, students of various colleges of Delhi University of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) student organization CYSS have submitted a demand letter to the Dean of Examination. In this, they have demanded that DU should declare the exam results of the previous semester before starting the upcoming online examination. Along with this, the time for submitting the answer sheet has been reduced to 30 minutes, it should be increased to one hour again.
Kamal Tiwari, a third-year student of Motilal Nehru College, said that in the online exams conducted earlier, it has been seen that the DU portal does not work properly and students have to face problems like server failure due to which the student can reply promptly. In such a situation, 30 minutes reduction in exam time by the university administration is wrong, because it is not possible to submit the booklet.
Many DU students or their family members are currently infected with Corona. Due to which many students are not in a position to give the exam at this time. Such students should be given another chance to take the exam later so that those students do not have to face the pressure of the exam. Because of the lockdown, students are not able to get the study material. Due to which the students are facing different types of problems in preparing for the exam. In such a way, DU should make a central portal to provide notes and study material to the students.
OBE Examination to be canceled – AISA
Several college students have written a collective letter to DU Kekulapathi on the call of student organization AISA. The students have demanded immediate cancellation of the examinations. In a letter written through the mail, the students have made them aware of the troubles of the student community due to COVID-19. Students say they have lost many of their teachers due to corona, with many students still infected. In such a situation, it is inhumane to take examinations on behalf of the university.
