Anna University Open Book Exam for the Students – Check Info Here. The open book format has been used many times for internal assessments, this will be the first time it is used for end-semester exams, said a senior official from the varsity. The semester exams in May for students of Anna University’s four campuses including College of Engineering, Guindy and Madras Institute of Technology, Chromepet will be an open book-type proctored test online.
The university had earlier conducted a 60-minute online proctored test with multiple choice based questions. “During that test, students tried to form WhatsApp groups and groups in Telegram to outsmart the online proctored test. Hence, the university has decided to move to descriptive type tests,” sources said.
Anna University has decided to bring change in the online exam in this situation. The semester exam for engineering students is scheduled to take place in May. Anna University conducted the last semester exams online with specially developed software due to Corono vulnerability. In this situation, Anna University has now abandoned that system. Following this, students will be allowed to look at the book and write the exam during the semester exams to be held in May.
