New Delhi: A Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) delegation met the Dean (Examinations) for a solution of technical errors that emerged in the recent results of the open book examinations for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
President Akshit Dhaiya-led three-member DUSU committee met Dean (Examinations) Professor Vinay Gupta to address the issue.
“We requested the Dean to ensure that every student should appear for upcoming even semester exam and online attendance should not be taken into count as eligibility criteria for appearing in the upcoming odd semester examinations,” DUSU was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
DUSU president Akshit Dhaiya said various issues were faced by the students during the exams.
“Many students had expressed various issues regarding the Online Open Book Examinations including faults in record or being marked absent in some of the examination despite giving the same. Following this, we decided to meet the Dean (Examinations) and also give him a representation in order to resolve this issue.
“We have requested the administration to resolve technical glitches such as no record found etc because this time of the pandemic is a stressful time for the students because already they are locked up in their homes for months and if such things would happen, it would put them under unreasonable stress,” Dhaiya told IANS.
