By Chetana Divya Vasudev: The IGNOU measure will save time for many students but they should not get lax

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) some time ago introduced “on demand” examination that allows students to take exams on a day of their convenience by registering online or at the regional centre, provided they have fulfilled the academic criteria for the term. The hall ticket generated after the registration specifies the time and venue of the examination. Since the entire process is computerised, increasing efficiency, the results are announced within two weeks.

The Hindu EducationPlus spoke to a cross-section of college students in Bangalore to find out whether they like this system.

Suprita Venkatesh (third year BBM, Surana College): I would definitely love to have “on demand” exams, but I think my ‘on demand' will be after the usual six months. As it is, the semester system allows us only about 60 to 70 working days. This sem., it's just 55, and most of what we do in college is limited to theory. So, if I had this option available, I would certainly like to make use of it to take my exams at the end of eight months rather than six.

Ayesha Zeba (second year B.Com., NMKRV College for Women): If every college adopts it, it will boost students' confidence as even if they are not able to make it through in any subject, they won't have to wait for another year to attempt the paper again. This confidence in turn will help improve the overall performance. Moreover, if you are unable to appear for a particular exam in the final year for any reason, you can still face interviews without feeling embarrassed because you can take and clear the exam in almost no time.

Pratima Vasudev (second year B.A., Vijaya College): I feel that the system of “on demand” examination can be very chaotic. The manner in which the students take exams can begin to seem randomised, especially in my college, because there are so many students here. It might become a tedious and even a tricky task to cater to each student's demands.

However, since we don't have supplementary exams at the degree level, this would be a good option instead. Even this, I feel, should be on one fixed day for all students.
