The university had given a range of options to the department heads on method of conducting the examination.
“Most departments have decided to send the question paper to the students online and give them two to four hours of time to write their answers. They will not be expected to be on a video call or online to write answers. Instead, they will have to send a scanned copy of their answer sheet once the exam time concludes,” said Prof Vinod Pavarala, spokesperson, UoH.
End-semester exams are being conducted for 50 marks and students are evaluated on a continuous basis for the remaining 50 marks.
“Although it will be sort of an open book examination, the question papers will have an element of analysis and interpretation in it. Such that students will not be able to copy paste from their study material. Some departments are also conducting oral exams post the theory papers to check students’ engagement with the curriculum and integrity,” said Prof Pavarala.
The university will be conducting online entrance exams for various postgraduate and integrated courses from September 24.
