Following in the footsteps of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi University will upload the answer keys to all multiple choice questions (MCQ)-based entrance tests on its website within a day of conducting the examinations.
The decision was notified late Monday night. All MCQ-based entrance examinations the university conducts will henceforth be covered under the new policy.
"This is a great move that will ensure accountability and transparency. Students can assess their performance as soon as they have taken the test. They can also point out mistakes in the answer key or questions well in time," said Jay Chanda, chief public information officer, DU.
The first test that may be covered under the new rule is the one for admission to the four-year B Tech Innovation which will be conducted on July 22.
The Faculty College for Medical Sciences, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Management Studies are among prominent institutes that will have to follow the directive.
Entrance exams for courses such as Bachelors of Business Economics, Bachelors of Business Studies and CATE and CJET will be covered from next year.
"We wanted to make sure all information is easily available to students and they don't have to file RTIs to get their answer sheets," a senior DU official added.
