On Friday , office-bearers of ABVP called on the Vice-Chancellor and presented a memorandum of suggestions in respect of the modes that may be adopted for holding the upcoming semester examinations. ABVP expressed its displeasure with the fact that very less time was given for discussion with stakeholders and only one alternative mode was suggested. ABVP recommended extensive dialogues with all stakeholders for a suitable solution.
ABVP has proposed a set of 3 suggestions along with 8 solutions some of which have been mentioned below. The situation calls for an extensive discussion with all stakeholders including students, teachers, experts etc and all feasible options be explored. ABVP suggested to give more and more options to students in terms of course to be evaluated, mode of evaluation, questions to be answered. Many students had left the national capital in the mid semester break without their study materials and so the university must make provision to provide them the resource material soon. The students of final year be evaluated with conventional method if possible or with innovative feasible options and those of intermediate years be promoted with ‘carry forward method’ moreover The students should be assessed for only that part of the syllabus which had been completed during offline classroom teaching.
ABVP also suggested for In-house examination , equal opportunity for ex-students and those eligible for supplementary examinations. ABVP demanded for exploring composite evaluation methods like assignments, viva voce, projects, MCQs etc.
Sidharth Yadav, State Secretary, ABVP Delhi, said, “Only two days were given for soliciting exam-related suggestions which is wrong. More time for suggestions should be given and Students as well as other stakeholders must come up with more innovative, out-of-the-box, feasible solutions. We have submitted a comprehensive memorandum after wide range discussion with student community. While ABVP has always a solution based approach to deal with the emerging complexities, there are certain disruptive forces spreading chaos and confusion. Those opposing for opposition’s sake should stop at once and propose possible solutions.”
