Colleges will upload question papers, which must be downloaded, on the portal. Students are to write the exam with their mobile or laptop camera switched on and upon completing the paper, a copy of the answer sheet is to be uploaded for evaluation. If unable to upload answer sheets from their homes, students can make use of nearby internet centres or can send their answer scripts through post.

Due to reduction in duration, students will have more choices and answer less questions, said college principal Thomas Amirtham.
