It’s that time of the semester again when students wipe the dust over their books (in some cases, buy books) and prepare to prepare for finals. The ritual, however, it all set to become a little easier this semester onwards as leads from DU’s latest Executive Council meeting suggest that limited assistance, in the form of lifelines, will be provided to all exam-takers.
“We do not prepare students for zombie-apocalyptic situations. In real life scenarios, a worker sure can ask their colleagues for a little help. Then why be so hard on students preparing for those same scenarios?” said an official of the Examination Branch, on condition of anonymity. He went on to say that limited assistance is just as okay as providing log tables.
As per the final draft of the new system, each student will be allowed to ask questions worth 10 marks from their teachers during each exam. “It’s better to re-teach a student something he doesn’t remember or did not prepare, even if it needs to be done in the examination hall, instead of leaving no choice for him but to leave questions. Our ultimate aim is the impartment of knowledge,” DU’s vice-chancellor said.
