Bazinga: DU to conduct semester exams in sets to reduce cheating chances
With the ‘Pariksha Das Committee for Excellence in Examinations Conduct’ submitting its final report to the University of Delhi yesterday, it is almost final that the Delhi University semester exams question papers will now be held in the sets of three.
Much like the conduct of class XIIth exams, the examinee sitting in front and back and on left and right of you would be solving a different question paper than yours.
Not only this, but the University is also planning to increase the number of invigilators per exam room to 3, and install multiple cameras to capture each and every move of the students. Learning its lessons from last semester exam’s cheating cases, mobile phones won’t be allowed in the exam room. Thus, in the course of exam duration, the students won’t be allowed to answer any phone calls or even the nature’s call for that matter.
“This is unfair on DU’s part, such notifications should be released in the beginning of semester so that we can accordingly prepare ourselves. I had all my cheat codes set, seems it’ll be hard to use them and pass this time”, said Mayoos Meena, a second year DU student.
While some students were disappointed with the sudden move, other were seen happy. “This guy behind me knew nothing and irritated me to show my balance sheet and cash flows all the time. I’m glad the exam will be in sets now”, said Champa Padhaiwala, a final year B.Com Honors student and the South Campus topper for consecutive 2 years.
DU is all set to make the recommendations of the committee into a binding ordinance effective from semester exams of May 2016.
We wish good luck to all the examinees!
