After the postponement of the Open Book Examination of the final year students’ graduation at the University of Delhi, the organization of students and the demand for cancellation of it has increased. Students and teachers have opposed the DU to conduct an open book examination. The students have also got angry about this open-book examination and the students have expressed their resistance on social media by making them meet. Someone put a photo of Rajpal Yadav and wrote that nothing can happen now?
In the same way, by putting a photo of Sunny Deol, a student has written that date on a date would be available on a date but the date book does not cancel. President of DU Teachers Association, Rajib Ray has written a letter to the Minister of Human Resource Development, UGC Chairman and DU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Yogesh Kumar Tyagi, and informed about the problem of students and demanded that the exam be canceled.
He has written in his letter that due to the situation arising out of Kovid-19, the open book examination has been postponed for 10 days whereas even after 10 days the situation regarding Kovid is not likely to be very good. In Duta’s survey, 85 percent of the students have denied it. Students are in no mood to take the open book examination.
DU has made fun of exam: Pankaj Garg
Pankaj Garg, convenor of the Indian National Teachers Congress, a teacher organization of the Congress, says that Delhi University has made fun of open book examination for final year students. The situation on Kovid-19 is not going to improve in the next ten days and it will worsen in the coming days. The decision of open book test examination will create confusion and more tension in the teachers and students of Delhi University. Common service centers, in which they are talking frequently, do not have any proper infrastructure and most of them are not functioning under the current Kovid-19 status. Problems will remain the same for students, including more than 50 percent outside students. The University Grants Commission (UGC) should intervene immediately and send the cancellation guidelines for final year students and final year students should be evaluated on the basis of past performance.
Students not in a position to take exams: Rajesh Jha
Dr. Rajesh Jha, an officer of the Teachers Association Academic for Action and Development and a member of the Executive Council in DU, says that the students of DU are not in a position to take the exam in the present situation. He is going through mental stress and his phone and mail are constantly coming. Not canceling the exam and extending its date by more than 10 days shows DU’s indifference and unkindness towards the students.
