For the first time in its history, the University of Delhi (DU) will be announcing the results online for its ongoing semester examination. Around one lakh 20 thousand students have appeared for the exams.
Dinesh Singh, vice-chancellor of DU, says that the processing of the results will be accelerated this time and will be declared within 14 days of the completion of the exams. The semester results of all students will be put up by 15 Dec 2012 on the university website (www.du.ac.in).
"Results will be announced online and students will be supplied with their mark sheets as well. If students want a certified copy, they can get the principal's stamp on the mark sheet after that," says Singh.
The entire system of evaluation and declaration of results is undergoing a change & and will be further developed in the next sequence of exams. "The evaluation system was made online this year beginning with the practical exam results that were generated by the colleges directly . For theory exams also teachers will submit the corrected answer scripts and award sheets at the evaluation centres, which will be uploaded on the university server. The software systems of colleges are connected with the university server", says Pradumn Kumar, principal of Hindu College, a member of the exam reform committee.
Earlier, the award sheets were filled in manually and sets of answer scripts were sent to the university, after which the results were declared. This process used to consume a lot of time. The university also plans to streamline the scheme of setting and distributing question papers from the next academic session. Besides, question papers will be set and printed in both English and Hindi.
"It will benefit students to have online, all the information regarding exams , admit cards, results and mark sheets. The new system under this reform will help streamline the entire examination process as well as minimise paperwork," adds Kumar.
