The University of Delhi has announced that it will be conducting the examinations in both online open book and offline mode. While DU Semester Exams 2022 that are scheduled to be conducted in March/April will be held in online Open Book Exam (OBE) format, the May examination will be conducted in the physical mode. The DU official notification stated that semester 1, 3 and 5 or odd semester exams will be conducted in OBE format, while semester 2, 4, and 6 or the even semester examinations will be conducted in offline mode. 

"The decision was taken on the recommendations of the working group for examinations. The DU First semester exams will be in the third week of March in online OBE mode once physical classes disperse on March 10. The first-year students are expected to attend only 17-18 days of offline classes. Hence, for offline exams of these students, days of proper planning, involving paper printing, answer script preparation, etc. are required. Hence, Online OBE seems like the best option for them," RS Rawat, dean, Examinations said. 

The physical exams will begin from May onwards, which is when the even semesters begin. “The final and second-year students who are already attending offline classes will be tuned to the idea of physical exams. Few students making a plea for online exams in May that has been summarily dismissed,” Rawat adds.

DU is all set to hold OBE as this would be the seventh such exam in online mode. “The first OBE was started in August 2020, followed by a series of exams in 2020 and 2021, some of which provided the second chance to students,” he said.
