Panjab University (PU) is likely to conduct the next semester exams through a blended (both online and offline) mode, said sources.

The exams will start in the last week of February or the first week of March. A meeting in this regard was held on Saturday and all stakeholders reportedly agreed on conducting blended-mode exams. An official announcement in this regard will be made after getting an approval of the PU Vice-Chancellor.

“The meeting was conducted yesterday and a unanimous decision has been made. However, the final decision will be taken by the competent authority,” said Dr Jagat Bhushan, Controller of Examinations (CoE), PU. The sources claimed that a committee recommended conducting the blended mode examination. Over 3 lakh students of the PU and its affiliated colleges will take the exams.

Last September, the PU had conducted blended-mode examination wherein the candidates were required to attempt 50 per cent of the question paper by choosing questions. The candidates were asked to solve the questions from their respective locations on A4 size paper in his/her handwriting with a maximum page limit of 12 sheets.

The candidates were required to write his/her roll number/class/paper/course and signature on each sheet. The students were given two hours to submit the answer sheets. Besides submission by respective authorities, the question paper was also allowed to be uploaded on the university’s website or sent by registered mails.

“The schedule of these examinations will be released after getting an approval of the Vice-Chancellor office. The colleges and other regional centres will be also taken into consideration for announcing the examination schedule. It’s to be believed that the examinations will be conducted on the similar pattern as before,” said the sources.
