Delhi University (DU) students appearing for offline exams will get an additional 30 minutes and more choices in the question paper as a special one-time measure. The university is conducting offline exams after a gap of two years.
DU had started holding online open-book exams for students. Recently, students in the first, third and fifth semesters appeared for online open-book exams. Students in the second, fourth and sixth semesters will appear for exams in the physical mode in May and June.
In an official notification issued on Friday, the university said the duration of each exam will be extended by 30 minutes as a special one-time measure.
“Faculty/Department will be requested to give additional choices in the Question Paper, wherever applicable,” the university said. “Those students who have filled the Examination Form and are not able to appear for it due to justifiable reasons may be given another chance to appear for the same. For that purpose, Phase-II of the aforesaid examination will be conducted for the leftover (remaining) students.”
The university said faculties, departments and colleges will be requested to provide study material to the needy students. Various faculties and departments will also be requested to conduct mock tests in addition to class tests.
