The Jamia Millia Islamia University (JMI) has commenced the online open book examination for the odd semester and final year students from January 18. According to a statement issued by JMI, no students grumbled about technical complications during the online open book examination. The online JMI open book exam was held in phases. The online exams for the students of undergraduate programs were held in the morning shift and the postgraduate programs were organized at the afternoon shift.
A total of 1,008 JMI undergraduate program students and 1,099 postgraduate program students have given the online open-book exams. A total of around 9,000 students will take the JMI open book examination scheduled between January 18, and February 19, 2021.
Wishing decent luck to the JMI students taking the online open-book examination Professor Najma Akhtar, Vice-Chancellor of the University said that contemplating the demand of students and parents and keeping in mind the health interests of students, a verdict to conduct an open book examination was taken. It was a huge challenge to perform the exam as we have to save the academic year as well as the health concerns of pupils.
The online classes for the following semester will start soon after the end of the examination, Professor Akhtar explained.
the students of JMI odd semester and final year examinations were given three hours to take the test, and an extra one hour to upload the answer sheets on the portal. An alternative email id was also contributed to students if in case uploading of answer sheets on the portal was tough due to internet issues, the JMI statement read. Lecturers were present in their respective departments to address students’ issues on JMI open book exam question papers and other problems.
