Haryana’s flexi-examination system

Date: 20 October 2020 Tags: Miscellaneous

Issue

Considering that the disruption in studies may continue for an uncertain period, Haryana State Higher Education Council has come out with a “flexi-examination system”.

 

Background

The disruption in the education system in the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic has necessitated several education reforms to be put on fast track. One important dimension of the education system is examinations.

 

Details

  • To begin with, at least seven out of the 17 government-aided universities of Haryana have agreed to introduce the system that will impact thousands of students of post-graduation courses.

  •  Gradually, the system will be adopted by all the 17 universities in post-graduation courses, followed by professional courses.

  • If the results are encouraging, then the flexi-examination system will also be introduced to the graduation courses.

  • As the name suggests, the examination schedule shall be flexible for the students. There are two dimensions to this system.

  • One, it provides a second chance to weaker students to clear their exams more easily.

  • As of now, those students who are not able to pass their regular examination in the first attempt, have to wait for six months or a year to sit for re-examination, depending on the regulations in force in their universities.

  • If the student is in the final year, he/she has to wait for a full year for the re-examination. As a result, his/her further studies as well as employment opportunities get impacted.

  • With the flexi-examination system, a student who gets a compartment or wants to re-appear in one, two, or more papers can ask the university for a suitable time when he/she is ready for the re-examination.

  • The university will give the student an opportunity at a mutually convenient time and date to take the re-examination.

  • Under the flexi-examination system, universities shall keep a comprehensive question bank ready. When a student wants to sit for an examination, either physically or in online mode, a randomised question paper will be generated.

  • The first aim is to cover the post-graduation courses, then the professional courses like engineering, medical, and others, and, depending upon the success of the project, this system will also be gradually implemented in graduation courses.
