Frontlist Education | Students Unhappy & Against Open Book says Experts
Examinees are required to submit their answer sheets at the collection centres — around thousands of which have been set up. Students will be able to submit their answer sheets either by post or by e-mail.
Former vice chancellor, Prof Tarique Zafar said, “How will government ensure that students don’t use unfair means while writing the answers”
He added that students should have asked to appear in exam. “Government can wait instead of taking such decisions in a hurry,” he added.
Former principal MLB college, Prof GD Singh reacted, “What is the point of an exam, if students are allowed to copy answers from a book. This is unfair to students who have studied all year around for a good score. There is a need for a well thought out strategy.”
Students too have raised concern over the open-book-exam patter. “Why should anyone study, when book is available. What is the sudden hurry, when everything is at a standstill due to the pandemic. Open book exam is not really an exam.”
The examination results of final year graduation and fourth semester post graduation will be declared by granting 50% weight to marks obtained in previous years and 50% to marks obtained in open book exams. As many as 5.71 lakh students will appear in examinations of final year graduation and fourth semester post graduation.
