BENGALURU: The state department of pre-university education (PUE) is all set to deliver question papers through online mode for the second PUC final examinations scheduled in March/April 2019. Buoyed by the success of the online question paper delivery system adopted during recently held second PUC supplementary exams at one of the centres, the department is thinking of extending it to over 1,000 centres during the final exams. Online question papers were delivered during supplementary exams at the government PU college located in Malleswaram. Over 200 students appeared for the exams at this particular centre.
“Continuous power supply and good internet connectivity are the most important requirements to ensure hassle-free delivery of question papers. During March 2019 exams, we are aiming to extend online delivery of question papers to at least 1,000 centres. A detailed proposal in this regard will be sent to the government soon,” said a senior official of the department. “This is mainly to avoid chances of question paper leak.” A few universities, including Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi and Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bengaluru, are already practising online question paper delivery method for the past m any years.
How it works?
The question paper is uploaded about 45 minutes before the commencement of exams. The supervisor at the exam centre downloads a copy of the question paper and subsequently takes its photocopies. The photocopied question papers are then immediately packed, sealed and sent to examination halls.
