Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) released an earlier notice on December 16, 2020, stating that the end–semester examination of the coming semesters will be conducted in an online mode. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has decided to take such a step after a number of students previously disagreed with its decision of conducting offline exams as it is not safe and favourable at the moment for anyone.
The end semester exams of GGSIPU of 3rd and 5th semester will be starting on 15th January 2021(tentatively). The final datasheet will be uploaded soon and be informed as and when received. Admit cards will be issued in the first week of January as and when received from University; whether online or in print form depends on in form received. SIPR Viva/practical etc. will be beforehand and be informed by the college accordingly. The reappear exam will also be held in the same online way. The datasheet will come separately for that.
It’s been reported that colleges like DME and MSI have a certain set of guidelines for how the semester exams shall take place.
The questions paper will be objectives-based. The pattern will be MCQ form and not subjective at all. No negative marking. The duration will be 90 minutes. Questions will be 60 in number to be attempted in 90 minutes. Exams would be proctored by artificial intelligence.
