DU OBE for the third and fifth semester began on 12th December. However, on the fourth day of OBE I.e. on Tuesday the online OBE portal did not work due to technical errors. As a result, a large percentage of students appearing for the OBE exam could not upload their answer scripts on the portal. The students then emailed their answer scripts to the appointed nodal officers along with the screenshots of failed attempts of the online portal. The errors that occurred during the exam has developed a fear in the students about their submitted answer scripts and results. Delhi University has further asked for delayed checks of emailed copies.
DU OBE Spanish Question Paper goes Missing
DU students said that on Tuesday a number of flaws in the portal were confronted. Students who had their Spanish language exam at 9 AM when logged into the portal on time, found no paper. A student asserted that the exam started at 9 AM and the paper should have been uploaded on the DU OBE portal before the commencement of the exam. So that students could download and write their exams on time. When the students complained about it, the officials asked them to wait by saying the question paper will be uploaded soon.
Students appearing for Spanish paper received their question paper at half-past ten. But the problem with the portal did not end here. Students in the subsequent shifts confronted a number of problems.
Students failed to upload answer scripts as the portal crashes
Students of Hindi, Physics, Geography, B.A. Program History, Sociology, Behavioral Translation confronted several difficulties in uploading their answer scripts on the portal. A large number of students could not upload the answer scripts on the OBE portal on time and later mailed the scripts to the nodal officers. In Delhi University’s Miranda House alone, 33 students in Sociology, 37 in Geography, and 20 in Hindi could not upload the answer scripts on the portal. The students of political science also confronted the same problems.
OBE Evening Shift timings extended till 8:30 PM On Tuesday
Later Delhi University extended the time for uploading the answer scripts till 8:30 pm for the 2:30 to 6:30 pm shift. Students however raised objections over the unjust for those who submitted before 6:30 pm. As a number of students could not upload their answer scripts on the portal, the University of Delhi later issued a message to its colleges to notify students that the time for uploading answer scripts on the portal has been extended till 8:30 pm.
