DEHRADUN: In light of several recent paper leak scams, the Veer Madho Singh Bhandari (VMSB) Uttarakhand Technical University has moved to a digital question paper method, in which the papers are uploaded to a central server by the controller of examination and made available only 30 minutes before the exam.
“In the ongoing semester exams, we didn’t print the question papers or transport them to the exam centres. This was done to avoid any sort of leak at any stage. The papers were uploaded on a central server by the controller of examinations in an encrypted format and made available only 30 minutes before the commencement of the paper. The centres are equipped with high-speed printers and their heads have been given unique codes to access the papers,” said university vice-chancellor (VC) Onkar Singh.
“As this model seems to be working, we are now implementing it for all papers at the university. In addition, we have also started uploading evaluated answer sheets of the students before compiling the results. This way, if a student has any objections to the evaluation, they can challenge it. The problem can be rectified and only then will the result be compiled. This will save time and other resources that go into re-evaluation,” said Singh.
Such provisions are currently not available with other universities like the HNB University, the state’s only central university, where many facilities have been digitised, but question papers are still being provided offline.
