The students should have documentary proof in case there is delay in uploading answer sheets. They are also supposed to submit their scripts on the OBE portal only.
“All the students are advised not to use any unfair means while writing the exam. They must be very careful in writing exams, a system is in place to detect copying/use of unfair means in the examination,” as per the report by PTI.
The report further states that over 350 students were caught using unfair means during the OBE in June. As a result, the university cancelled their entire semester or the paper.
"If submission (of scripts) on the portal gets delayed beyond one hour, students can use an additional one hour to upload the scripts on the OBE portal (that is the 5th hour), but in that case students have to keep the documentary evidences (4-5 snapshots of the delay in uploading)," said the report.
This means that students will be given three hours for writing answers and one extra hour for downloading the question paper and uploading scripts. They will also have one more hour for delayed submission.
The partially submitted answers by email would not be accepted and the submission by both email and on the portal will not be accepted.
University of Delhi has also released the DU PG merit list 2021 and cut off for the second round on November 17. The DU PG first merit list 2021 was released on November 17 along with the cut off marks.
