Mizoram University has decided to opt for the digital route to hold its semester undergraduate exams from June 1, 2021.
The semester examination of under graduate and professional course under Mizoram University started on June 1, 2021 through online mode under careful invigilation. The examination is due to end on June 28, 2021.
Mizoram University reported that around 24,000 students have been registered for the online exam.
Different NGOs, Principal Council, Local/Village Level Task Force, local bodies, churches and individuals have shown their support for the students by offering internet connection, donating papers and stationery items and taking care of the necessary arrangement for the online exam.
Amidst the raging pandemic, students are struggling to keep up with the syllabus, battling exam stress, inadequate online learning facilities, fear of the virus and admission worries.
The ongoing state-wide total lockdown and the subsequent shift to online mode of learning have posed several difficulties for students and teachers, particularly those in remote areas where internet connection is unstable. The students of Mawhrei village in Siaha district travelled 5 kms from their village to a small hill where internet connection is stable to take the online exam. Mara Students Organization have built a small shack for the students on the top of this hill. The spot has been chosen because of the he availability of 4G signal in the area. These students of Mawhrei village are enrolled in different colleges in Aizawl and Siaha.
