NEW DELHI: In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, educational institutions across the country have remained closed. However, Delhi University (DU) worked round the clock and burnt midnight oil to prepare results of the examinations for undergraduate courses held in June this year.

The varsity has set a new record under which the results of all undergraduate courses have been prepared within just one month of the conduct of the examination. This is the first time since its inception that the university has taken less than 30 days to prepare the results of undergraduate courses.

Not only this, results of some courses were prepared within 2 days of the examinations. There are more than 73,000 students in the regular undergraduate courses alone. Apart from these, thousands of other students have also appeared for the exams held in June 2021.

The university said that till now the results of 64 different undergraduate (UG) courses have been prepared.

The results of the remaining 10 courses are also being compiled. For declaring the results, the university employees are working late at night, even on the holidays, on Saturdays and Sundays.

DU Dean of Examination, D.S. Rawat told IANS, "The last exam was held on June 28, and since then the results of 88 per cent of the UG courses have been prepared. Only 56 copies of the Bachelor of Arts (B.A) courses in Delhi University are left to be checked."

According to him, the results of 11,879 students pursuing B.A programme will be declared by Monday and results of nine other courses as well as all other courses are likely to be declared by Tuesday.

"For the first time in the history of DU, the results of all UG courses will be declared within a month. The results for BA programme, including remaining courses, will be declared in 2-3 days," DU Dean of Examination said.

Rawat said, "This time a provision was made wherein the data generated by the colleges had to be verified by the teachers concerned through online mode. Hence the data received was more than 95 per cent correct. While during the March Open Book Examinations (OBE), I announced a citation for those who completed the assessment in stipulated time. Certificates were issued for March OBE before the start of June assessment. It was not that easy but we did it. It worked really well." (IANS)
