Patiala, September 10

Universities in Patiala have started the process of holding examinations for the current session to be concluded by October 15. While the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL) already conducted the examinations for the final year LLB and LLM students in early July, Punjabi University, Patiala, will hold the exams through blended online-offline mode.

The Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law conducted an open-book online examination from July 1 to 10 where the university used Google classroom for the examination. The students, supposed to appear for the 50-mark question paper in 2 hours, were given 1.5 hours to upload or email the answer sheets after the exam time.

Punjabi University, Patiala, will begin holding exams for exit classes from September 25 in a blended online-offline mode. Officials on the campus said coping with internet connectivity issues would remain a challenge for conducting the examinations. The university has over 70,000 final year students on its campus, in neighbourhood campuses, constituent colleges and others. As such it has ruled out the possibility of conducting offline examinations at its centres. Prof JIS Khattar, Controller Examinations, on Wednesday released a notice stating that the theory exam would be conducted through online-offline blended mode. The students would be given two hours to answer 50 per cent of the questions on the paper.

Officials said as per discussions, students would download the exam paper as provided through department heads, write answers on A-4 size sheets and upload them back on the website or as otherwise directed. The students would be required to answer 50 per cent of the question paper.

University departments and colleges have also been directed to conduct practical examinations by September 19 through online mode. Prof Khattar said, “We are making provisions to ensure that students are able to take the exams with ease. The other modalities are being finalised.”
