In a bid to control the usage of unfair means in the Delhi University semester exams, the DU high command has come up with quite a unique way. If our University insider sources are to be believed, DU has decided to discontinue the practice of letting students take their semester exams in their own respective colleges from now.

The officials are of the view that, students have their way in own colleges and it is comparatively easier for them to take the advantage of unfair means like writing formulas/key points on desks or walls, or maybe carrying of chits. Moreover, the invigilators are college professors, who might have a soft corner for the students of their own institution and might help them with answers or by provision of extra writing time.

“The seriousness, the prestige of an exam is diluted when the exam is conducted in the surroundings the students are accustomed to. Keeping that in mind, and on the models of CBSE’s conduct of class 10th & 12th exams, we hereby propose a change in DU semester exams effective on immediate basis for Semester Exams, May 2014.” said, Mr. Bil Kul Verma,  the Head of Examinations, DU.

According to the new plan to discipline the conduct of exams, all the students will be allotted exam centers in different college of the University, subject to change for every exam. Reportedly, DU has entered into a venture with Indraprastha University, wherein, their students shall take their exams in DU colleges and DU students might have to  go to the campus of I.P. University for the same. Similar talks with officials of Jawaharlal Nehru University are on, however nothing has materialized yet.

The information regarding exam centers would be available on the University website, on the evening before the exam days and shall be accessible after filling in your University roll number and some other details.

Seems like C.B.S.E. has been influencing DU on more than one grounds, as the next plan in pipeline is, conduct of Delhi University semester exams with question papers designed in three different sets, again to minimize the chances of cheating by eliminating discussion and exchange of sheets or question papers.

Brave the change, good luck for exams, DUites!
