Delhi High Court has asked Delhi University to state the preparedness of Common Service Centres (CSC), which have been set up to provide services to students who do not have the infrastructure to take Open Book Examinations (OBE).

A notice was issued to Delhi University by Delhi HC to state about the preparedness of centres for both mock tests and main exams.

Moreover, the owner of CSC academy has also been asked by Justice Prathiba M Singh to provide the list of centres which have been taken on board by Delhi University

The high court was hearing a plea against DU’s Open Book Exams according to the UGC guidelines, for final year undergraduate courses which will be in long-form exams.

Previously, DU decided to Conduct Mock Tests for Online Open-Book Exams to make students familiar with OBE guidelines. The mocks were scheduled between July 4-8.

However, several students claimed that they faced technical difficulties and the website crashed on the first day of the online mock exam.
