‘Prefers online exams to offline’
DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 10: The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has appealed to the Nagaland University (NU) to re-examine its decision to conduct undergraduate degree courses examinations through off-line mode.
The NU had recently come out with tentative examination schedule for 3-year degree course in BA/B. Sc/B. Com/BBA/BCA from December 7 to 21 through offline mode.
In a representation to the Vice Chancellor, NU, HQ Lumami, ANCSU president Vimeyiekho Vitso and general secretary Imnameren N Jamir, while referring to revised University Grants Commission Academic Calendar 2020, reiterated that exams for the present 1st, 3rd and 5th semester undergraduate degree students can be conducted during the month of March, 2021.
However, ANCSU discouraged physical mode of examination for the forthcoming examination, and suggested the possibility to conduct online exams “as the situation remains inconducive”.
The Union also acknowledged that in any circumstances the quality of education should not be compromised and assured support to the university in academic activities that will ensure meritocracy.
“The ANCSU is hopeful that the NU would thoroughly assess the prevailing situation and the revised UGC academic calendar so that the career of the students is not put at stake,” it said.
In another representation to the Chief Secretary, Nagaland, ANCSU said after thorough assessment it has ascertained that the prevailing situation remains inconducive to conduct physical mode of examination.
It requested the CS to take due recognition of its representation and advice the same to the Nagaland University in larger interest of the students, colleges and the society at large.
