change in exam plan in DUThe changes that were introduced in Delhi Universitys examination format earlier in October, asking students to write their names along with the parents name on the answer scripts, has been changed again.As per the new rule, students are now required to mention only their roll numbers and date of birth on the answer scripts. According to Dinesh Singh, vice-chancellor, DU, the earlier proposed changes with regard to the answer script format were under consideration by the examination branch. And it was found that the system of writing roll numbers (identification code) was robust and worked without any problems. Hence, it was decided to revise the exam format.Under the new scheme, students will be writing out their roll numbers and date of birth along with the name of the course (paper) that they are appearing for, says Singh.Another change that is under consideration is that from now on all answer scripts issued by the universitys examination branch to colleges will be allotted numbers. This recommendation was put forward, so that a record of each script can be kept and in case of any discrepancy, it could be traced.  However, the decision of three examiners evaluating one answer sheet will remain intact without any change. Also, this year onwards, there will be evaluation centres in the South campus as well. A head examiner on each panel will supervise the whole evaluation process.  In order to reduce the burden on the exam branch, DU has assigned the task of formulating the award sheets of students for the practical examination to colleges. Until now, the university prepared the award sheets for both practical and theory exams.It is a welcome move. Colleges will be held more accountable while preparing the award sheets. The new system will be student-friendly and in case of any problems, it can be checked at the college-level itself, says Pradumn Kumar, principal, Hindu College. The last date for submission of examination forms for November-December semester exams has been extended to November 7.The decision was taken after protests from the student community, as under the exam reform, they were not allowed to submit the forms after the stipulated deadline.In the earlier system, students could submit forms after the deadline by paying a late fee. Students had been demonstrating as the provision was changed without the university issuing any prior notice.Information gathered from Internet from Click Here
