The School of Open Learning (SOL), Delhi University (DU) started with their online open-book examinations on the 10th of August, 2020. The authorities have reached a conclusion that a duration of four hours would be given to complete the examination.
The four hours are divided in a way such that three hours are to be utilized for writing the exam and an hour to scan and upload the answer sheets on the website. Students with disabilities are to get an extra one hour each to complete their answers, scan and upload the same on the website. This means that they get a total of six hours- four to write their answers and two to scan and upload their answer sheet.
Students need to register on the DU’s portal (https://solobe.du.ac.in) before the exams begin in order to download the question papers and later upload the answer sheet.
(Note: Those who have already registered at the time of mock tests do not have to register again)
Before the exam begins, the students will receive a link from DU on their registered e-mail address. The students can then download their question papers through that link. Those who do not receive such a link can contact 011-27008499 to receive the question papers via mail or WhatsApp. If the students have any queries or face any other difficulties, they can contact the same phone number.
The students are supposed to fill their name, roll number, course name, and other details on the answer-sheets before uploading it on the portal. The file should not exceed the maximum limit of 7 MB.
Students also have the option to send the answer sheets in a PDF format to DU’s central e-mail address (email@example.com) or to the course-specific e-mail addresses of SOL, in case they face troubles while carrying out the procedure mentioned above.
An e-mail helpline is also being operated by the University to address exam-specific grievances. Students can reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
