    Do you prefer online mode over pen paper based examination?

    There has been a change in the exam methodologies and now we are having online pattern in place of pen paper based examinations. There are benefits as well as demerits attached with both, many premier engineering colleges, as well as management education institutes are preferring online exam pattern over the older one. Well there is no doubt that when institutes which are conducting exams in online manner just like IIMs etc then there can never be a problem or issue with the net connectivity, but there can be a chance of having a bug in between which may spoil it. Which one is better according to you and kindly discuss the merits as to why you advocate this pattern and demerits that what are the points on the basis of which you are condemning the other.

    Online mode of exams are more common now a days. Though it is emerging not all the persons have the method of online based exams. The major demerit of the online exams is that all the individuals not have the knowledge to approach the exam. The advantage of the online exams is that no need of exam halls, supervision and separate time information. If the knowledge of the online exams have a separate teaching, it will be the best mode of examinations in the future. The results are immediately announced in the online exams. Online examinations are easier, time saving and comfortable. Many examinations are being conducted online, like MBA ( distant learning ), few Medical courses, short courses, etc. Candidates may take a little time to adjust but will find it fine. The time given is appropriate. The preparation should be good else the candidate may get nervous if they are not sure of the answers to the questions that come.

    I think on-line examination is getting popular. It is likely that more and more competitive examinations will switch over to this mode keeping in view the advantages in terms of time and management issues. Initially, there is some resistance to any new idea but it gets weakened with the passage of time as more and more people understand its merits. Non-connectivity and bug issues may also be solved ultimately once it becomes a major mode of examination.
