New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) launched walk-in Examinations to make the examination pattern more flexible and learner friendly.
Under this scheme, launched on its Foundation Day yesterday, students, instead of waiting for the six-monthly term end examination, can simply walk into any identified test centres of the university on the prescribed days and take the examination. The results would be processed on a monthly basis, said a IGNOU spokesman.
Walk-in-examination would give learners the liberty to decide the dates of exams as per their own suitability and convenience, thus lowering the exam pressure on them and thereby bringing down the percentage of failures.
Further, it will reduce the possibility of mal-practices in the examinations, as each student will get different set of question paper and examination will be conducted with camera surveillance.
Registration of students, allotment of the dates and the issue of hall ticket to the examinees for the walk-in examination would be done online.
Initially the walk-in-examination would be conducted by selected Regional Centres of the university once a week, i.e. on Sunday. The frequency of conduct of walk-in-exam may be increased in future depending on the need.
