DU Students Can Now Email Answer Sheets as Last Resort: University
DU OBE students have four hours to download the question paper, write the exam and upload and submit answer sheets.
As a last resort, Delhi University (DU) students can now email their answer sheets of the DU Open Book Exam (OBE) if they are facing difficulties in uploading it to the universities online exam portal, according to an email received by students on Sunday, 13 December.
The decision was made by the university administration after several students provided feedback on the conduct of online open book exams. According to a report by The Indian Express, nearly 500 students had emailed their answer sheets
“In order to mitigate hardships faced by such students, it has been allowed that in cases where students find problem in uploading answer sheet on OBE portal… for justifiable reasons, even after completion of five hours, the answer script can be submitted through email to nodal officers,” read the email sent by the DU Dean of Examinations.
The email further stated that “emails sent prior to completion of five hours shall not be accepted.”
Students who are unable to submit answer sheets in five hours will be required to take 4-5 photos of the portal at different times to prove they were unsuccessful in doing so, and send the email in 10 minutes of the lapse of the 5-hour period, along with the photos.
As per the DU OBE guidelines, students have four hours to download the question paper, write the exam and upload and submit answer sheets.
Students will also be given an additional 60 minutes to submit answer sheets, provided they can furnish evidence before a review committee of technical difficulties in submitting in four hours.
