A national board may be established to conduct on-demand examinations at the undergraduate degree level, a University Grants Commission panel has recommended. Starting with distance programmes for popular degree courses, on-demand examinations should be open to all, without any age or eligibility restrictions, it said.
The UGC panel on evaluation reforms was set up in May 2018 and chaired by Bharati Vidyapeeth Vice-Chancellor M.M. Salunkhe. In its report released last week, it recommended the development of question banks, relative grading, higher weightage to internal assessments and full choice-based credit transfer in all higher education institutions.
