Mumbai: The University of Mumbai began the rescheduled exams for the students of the Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) from October 26, reported Hindustan Times. About 84 per cent of the registered 10,000 students from B.Com and BA courses appeared for the first day’s exams.
The current exams will be conducted by a newly hired service provider, Pune-based Splashgain Technology Solutions, whereas the rescheduled backlog exams were already conducted on October 19, 20 and 21 on Google Forms.
A statement released by IDOL stated that all precautions have been taken for the safety of students, and that “over 8,000 students” attended the “six rounds of mock tests earlier.”
It added that students who cleared the exams held on October 3 and 6 were exempted from the current session of exams.
The exams were rescheduled due to technical glitches in the first session held in the first week of October. Glitches forced around 9,000 B.Com and BA students to skip the exams online.
All events of students being unable to attend online exams due to technical glitches will be investigated by a special fact-finding committee, said higher and technical education minister Uday Samant in a press conference last week.
