Online forms for DU exams

Online forms for DU exams

Started for first time, facility not available in all colleges

The Delhi University hopes to go online with  application forms and other formalities leading up to examinations.

But there are glitches. The online forms applying for exams and selecting subjects – introduced for the first time now – are not available at all colleges.

And at colleges that have implemented the online process, students say they received no instruction on how to go about filling them.

The semester exams are round the corner. Anuj Aggarwal, a first year student of Political Science at Dyal Singh College, said he was happy that he no longer had to stand in a long queue to fill the examination form. “It is a good initiative. One can always go back and make changes, if they have filled the examination form incorrectly. We could also pay the examination fee online,” he said.

“But we had no clarity on how to fill the online form for the applied and discipline courses that students want to study in the next academic session,” he added, arguing that the university should have provided counselling before initiating the new process.

With the introduction of the four-year undergraduate programme, students say  they don’t have much clarity on how to choose from applied and discipline courses on offer.

Results online

In many colleges now, all examination- related formalities like examination forms, application for revaluation and admit cards would be available online. The results too would be available online.

And in future, the university also plans to email the results to students.
In the online process, students are required to fill the forms available on the college website.

These forms would then be scanned and sent to the university by the college administration.

And with the process getting manual to online, roll number mistake, problems in mark sheets can be rectified in a few days' time, said university officials.

But students of many colleges would have to wait until next semester for making a shift to the online medium of filling forms.

“We have our examination starting from May 5. So we are busy getting clearances from library and laboratories,” said Shivani Lochab, an undergraduate Physics student at Kirori Mal College, where students are still putting up with online process of filling forms.

Last year, DU had introduced online admission forms for undergraduate courses. This academic session, students applying for postgraduate courses could also fill forms online.
