It must be noted that this is after two years that the varsity is conducting the exam in offline mode, despite students' protests against conducting offline mode. 

On Wednesday, Delhi University began the offline examinations for second and third-year undergraduate students. A total of 67,948 students appeared for the exams across courses that were conducted in two sessions.

While speaking on the same, D S Rawat, University's dean of examination, said that in the morning session, 44,311 students or 97.5 per cent of those who had registered had appeared for the exam. As many as 1,124 registered students however did not appear for the exam in the morning session. The attendance of students improved in the evening session by 99.8 per cent. "23,637 out of 23,684 registered students appeared for the exams during the evening session, the number on the first day was very impressive," he said, as reported by NDTV. 

"I would say it is better than previous years. This has come despite inertia among students against the physical mode of examination. There were some protests as well,” he said.

He further added that all those students who have missed their exams due to COVID-19 infection or are quarantined as someone in their family or closed one has tested positive will be given another chance in August.

"(Such students) will be asked to provide medical certificates and they will be given another chance in August to give the exams,” he said.

It must be noted that the University is giving additional 30 minutes to the students to write their exam considering that they are appearing for it after two years.
