Gone are the days, when the filling of the answer sheets was done manually and answer scripts were sent to university, followed by the declaration of results. Thiswas a tedious and time consuming process. So, the university has planned to streamline the scheme of setting and distributing question papers from the next academic session. Furthermore, the university question papers will be set and printed in both English and Hindi. As per Pradumn Kumar, principal of Hindu College, who was a member of the exam reform committee, “It will benefit students to have all the information regarding exams, admit cards, results and mark sheets online. The new system under this reform will help streamline the entire examination process as well as minimise paperwork."
This semester onwards the students of Delhi University will be saved from the effort of crowding around the notice board to catch a glimpse of their result. DU has planned to declare the results of ongoing semester examinations online. The results of one lakh twenty thousand students appearing in the exams will be declared online, by DU for the first time.
Keeping clear of all the talks of delayed results, Dinesh Singh, vice-chancellor of DU, said that the results would be fast tracked and declared this time, within 14 days of the completion of the exams. The results of all students would be put up by December 15 on the
university website (www.du.ac.in). Singh says, “Results will be announced online and students will be supplied with their mark sheets as well. If students want a certified copy, they can get the principal's stamp on the mark sheet after that."
The whole system of evaluation and declaration of results has been revamped and will further be refined in the next series of exams."The evaluation system was made online this year beginning with the practical exam results that were generated by the colleges directly. For theory exams also teachers will submit the corrected answer scripts and award sheets at the evaluation centres, which will be uploaded on the university server. The software systems of colleges are connected with the university server." adds Kumar, principal of Hindu College.
This indeed will make the examination and evaluation procedures for the students of DU, very easy to follow.
