This is the first time, the university is conducting online entrance examinations keeping aside huge criticisms from the JNU Students’ Union (JNUSU) as well as some Deans and teachers.”The format for the JNUEE 2019-20 will be Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) through a computer-based test,” it announced on its website.

In a meeting, held on May 17, the 12-member committee, set up to look into conducting online exams, said that the offline mode was “tedious, lengthy and time consuming”. The minutes of the meeting (MoM), signed by 11 members, read, “JNU should completely adopt the online mode of entrance examination with MCQs for all 169 examinations held for all schools and centres. All schools and centres that conduct subjective analytical examinations should change their examination pattern to an analysis of domain knowledge based on MCQs only,” as reported by the Indian Express on June 12.
