Let us tell you that due to the coronavirus lockdown, the University of Delhi administration has decided that if the situation is not normal with Corona, then an ‘open book exam’ will be conducted, which is constantly opposed.

Expressing their concerns, the Department of History teachers have written against this decision by DU Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi. Teachers have suggested that another option be explored.

The Masters (PG) Graduates (DU’s Combined Committee for Courses (CoC) for UG Honors Courses and Programs, Department of History, met on May 19 via zoom video calling. This includes open book exams on behalf of PG History students. Reactions were also discussed in the written text, during which time it was found that the coronavirus and lockdown had caused unprecedented circumstances.

People are facing many problems simultaneously, such as economic, mental, technical and shift of students and their families. Many students are also unable to get wifi and internet facilities. Many students do not have notes, while some are not getting study material. In such a situation, it will not be right to conduct the open book exam directly in July.

The Committee of Courses (CoC) insisted that students who are unable to submit their assignments in July should be given further time. Because the situation is very odd due to the lockdown.
