BATHINDA:The Cen­tral Univer­sity of Pun­jab (CUP), Bathinda, has de­cided to al­low stu­dents to write their fi­nal se­mes­ter ex­ams sched­uled from July 6 to July 17 on­line from their homes.

Regis­trar Kan­war Pal Singh Mun­dra said on Sun­day said the stu­dents can choose exam dates and avail­able time slots to ap­pear in a par­tic­u­lar ex­am­i­na­tion.

Mun­dra clar­i­fied that on­line mode is meant only for about 500 stu­dents of the fi­nal se­mes­ter to al­low them to take up fur­ther aca­demic or pro­fes­sional pur­suits.

Ex­am­i­na­tions for other classes will be sched­uled af­ter the Covid-19 sit­u­a­tion eases, he said.

“There will be two slots in a day in which 140 stu­dents can ap­pear for ex­am­i­na­tions in each ses­sion. Ef­forts are be­ing made to de­clare the re­sults within three days of con­duct­ing each test. This will help avoid de­lays in com­ple­tion of the ex­am­i­na­tion process,” said Mun­dra, who holds the dual charge of con­troller of ex­am­i­na­tion.

If a stu­dent fails to ap­pear for the on­line ex­am­i­na­tion for any valid rea­son, she or he will be el­i­gi­ble to sit for the exam on the univer­sity cam­pus once nor­malcy is re­stored.

Mun­dra said that one mock test of the on­line ex­am­i­na­tion sys­tem was con­ducted suc­cess­fully on Fri­day to help stu­dents check in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity and ease of use.

Around 400 stu­dents had par­tic­i­pated in the maiden event and an­other dry run would be con­ducted on June 26 to make stu­dents more fa­mil­iar with the on­line mode of tak­ing ex­am­i­na­tions, he said.
