On Saturday, students complained of several issues while answering questions to Delhi University’s online mock open book examinations (OBE). Chief among them were network problems, incorrect question papers and difficulty in logging in to the website.

The Delhi University had announced that online OBE for terminal year students due to the prevailing novel coronavirus outbreak, though students and teachers had expressed strong reservations against the decision.

The exams were supposed to begin from July 1 but were postponed to July 10 and in the meantime, the university had decided to conduct mock tests.
