According to the recent notice, Delhi University has Cancelled exams for first and second-year students. Now they’ll be marked on Previously performed semesters and internal assessment of this semester.
The second and fourth-semester exams have gone canceled with keeping the Coronavirus effects. An alternative mode of grading will be adopted by the board to mark the students’ performance in this semester. Though, the previous notice seems no change in conduction of open-book tests for final year examination.
The notification has issued on the 4th of June. The announcement said that it will not hold any exams for the second and fourth semesters. The decision on the exams was pending as the final year students will be giving their open book tests as planned with a tentative schedule. In the situation of the pandemic, it is not feasible to conduct a pen-paper test, hence, an alternative model will be adopted.
“The matter was intensively deliberated in the bodies…based on which it has been decided that as a one-time measure, alternative modes of grading for promotion/results shall be adopted as per composite format for calculating the same for the Intermediate semester/term/year students for academic session 2019-2020 so that students of the university can take their career forward,” said the DU notification.
Examination got canceled
As notice says, the grading of intermediate students “could be a composite of 50% marks based on the pattern of internal evaluation or assignment which is adopted by the university and colleges. And the other 50% will be based on the previous semester performance.
The first-year students, as they don’t have the previous record, shall be graded based on 100% assignment based evaluation.
