The University of Delhi has been conducting stand-alone exams for students after two years since Wednesday. The university has been conducting online Open Book (OBE) exams for the past two years due to the Covid pandemic.
Although exams for students appearing for the Essential Repeat (ER) exams have already begun on Monday, most exams will begin on Wednesday. On the first day there will be even semester students of 4th and 6th semesters enrolled in the second and third courses respectively.
Given that many students are nervous about taking online exams after two years, the university has also decided to give students an extra 30 minutes to take the exams.
The University has put in place all the protocols related to Covid. Students who appear for the exams will be required to maintain social distance to avoid the spread of the Covid virus, and to wear masks while taking the exams.
In the event that a student receives a positive test for Covid, the person will be required to be quarantined. The person will be able to appear for the exam at a later date, which will be announced by the university.
Earlier, several students turned to social media, urging the university to take exams online. Many students have also appealed to the Delhi Supreme Court. However, their request was rejected by the court.
The exams will end in June 2022.
