Mumbai Univ Affirms Online Exam Process For Engg

MU Adopts Online Exam For Engineering
Mumbai University is likely to launch its pilot project to carry out online procedures for the engineering examination from next year.

Starting in 2013, the university may plan to register students, accept examination forms, evaluate papers and also release students' mark sheets online. It might extent the method to other courses too.


The state's exam reform panel had recommended, in a recent report, several examination reforms including implementing online exams.

The panel also suggested having online theses submissions and evaluations for post graduate and doctoral programmes. Other reforms suggested include mandatory online display of results and open- book and take- home examinations. For the latter, students would be given submission deadlines. The committee also suggested the use of anti- plagiarism software.

Mumbai University has decided to adopt information and communication technology (ICT) for its pre- exam and post- exam processes. "We are planning to adopt online procedures for at least one course in 2013.

Subhash Deo, director of examinations, who was also a part of the reform committee said "We are yet to finalize the course but it would most likely be for the engineering faculty".
