Delhi University had announced earlier in the month of May that it’s going to conduct an online open-book, take-home exams for students in regular colleges, the School of Open Learning (SOL) and the Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB). This is being done due to the India-wide lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
