In continuation with its earlier notice dated August 26, the KU on September 3, issued fresh guidelines related to conduction of terminal semester examinations for the online and offline modes. About 1.20 lakh students of terminal semesters will take exams starting from September 10.
“There were complaints from students who apprised the KU about the lack of facilities for online exams. Therefore, we gave them options of appearing in exams at their respective colleges”, said Hukam Singh.
For the offline mode of examination, the students will have to visit their respective colleges and institutes where they would be provided with seating arrangements, question papers and answer sheets, he said.
“In an online meeting held on Thursday, the university has instructed the officials of all the colleges to make arrangements for the students opting for offline mode at their respective spaces. The responsibility of completing the examination will be of the principal and director of the concerned colleges”, told Hukam Singh.
KU has asked the students of affiliated institutes and colleges to choose the mode of their choice for the examination and submit their consent by Saturday, to the concerned officials of their institutions.
“The campus and distance students of KU are not required to submit any consent up to Saturday, as the varsity has already decided to hold their exams in online mode only”, told Hukam Singh.
“Those students, who are opting for the online mode, need a webcam facility so that invigilation can be done through Google Meet or WhatsApp call. This has been decided to eliminate the apprehension of cheating during the online exam as several officials had been raising the concerns”, Hukam said.
“All institutions and colleges will depute teachers on-duty on a daily basis for examination, and they will have to maintain the data of daily invigilation for a period of three months, so that the university can also examine and monitor if needed”, he added.
