Delhi University: DUSU Meets Administration to Resolve Online OBE Problems
As per recent updates, Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) met the Dean (Examinations) to resolve the technical errors which emerged in recent results for the open book exam for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
The three-member DUSU panel led by president Akshit Dhaiya met Professor Vinay Gupta, Dean (Examinations) to resolve the technical errors.
"We requested the Delhi University Dean to ensure that every student should appear for upcoming even semester exam and online attendance should not be taken into the count as eligibility criteria for appearing in the upcoming odd semester examinations," DUSU said.
While speaking to a news agency, DUSU President Akshit Dhaiya said, "Many students had expressed various issues regarding the Online Open Book Examinations including faults in the record or being marked absent in some of the examination despite giving the same. Following this, we decided to meet the Dean (Examinations) and also give him a representation in order to resolve this issue."
Further, Akshit said that they have requested the administration to resolve the technical glitches such as no record found etc because this time of the pandemic is a stressful time for the students because already they are locked up in their homes for months and if such things would happen, it would put them under unreasonable stress.
As per media reports, many students have claimed that despite giving examinations and submitting answer sheets on time amid the pandemic, the results have marked the students 'absent' in various subjects, creating a panic situation.
