Calcutta University will conduct the undergraduate exams of the odd semesters (first, third and fifth) from March 8 to 26 digitally as the campuses are yet to reopen because of the pandemic.

The university’s undergraduate board of studies met on Monday to finalise the schedule for the students of the BA, BSc and BCom programmes and the mode of exams, said vice-chancellor Sonali Chakravarti Banerjee.

The resolution adopted at the meeting says: “According to the UGC guideline dated 24th September, all odd semester examinations will be held during March 8-26 by online/ slash digital mode”.

The university will send soft copies of the question papers to the affiliated colleges on the exam days. “The university will also upload questions on its website,” the VC said.

Once students get the question paper, they can write the answers on their computer or smartphone and mail them back to a designated address. “Students after downloading the question papers can also write the answers in the pen-and-paper mode. In that case they have to scan the answer copy and mail the scanned copy in the form of a PDF file,” an official said.
