The GNDU today conducted its first online exam for exit courses as per the directions of the UGC and the Department of Higher Education, Punjab. The exams for various disciplines of undergraduate and postgraduate courses were conducted in three sessions (two-hour each).

On the first day, 25,787 students appeared for the online exam with nearly 13,000 students appearing in the evening session.

The varsity will be conducting online exams every day till October 10 and it’s the first time that the university is conducting exams virtually. “The first day of the exam went smoothly without any technical glitch or issue. We have planned the date sheet according to the availability and preference of students. We had practised four days ahead along with the respective principals of affiliated colleges to teach the students as well as invigilators how to upload and download question and answer sheets. Our teams worked out the details including registration of students. We will begin evaluating the answer sheets soon to ensure we declare results on time,” informed Manoj Kumar, Controller of Examination, GNDU.

The three sessions were held at 8 am, 11 am and 2 pm. The GNDU had also asked affiliated colleges to register private students in advance and reach out to them through phone or email. “Private students got question papers through the respective colleges where they had got themselves registered. We have ensured that no student is left behind,” said Manoj.

He said the data, including answer sheets, would be received by the respective colleges and only approved evaluators would mark them. While expressing satisfaction over the process, Vice Chancellor Prof Jaspal Singh Sandhu said the absentees would be given another chance in October-November.
