RTM Nagpur University 50-50 Pattern Education Quality
"The '50-50' subjective and objective examination pattern would prove to be the real test of knowledge of the students. The students will have to do a thorough study of the subject for this. It will help the students learn a lot," said Vice Chancellor of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU) Dr Sidhharthvinayak Kane on Wednesday.
Dr Kane paid a visit to Lokmat office. While speaking to the editorial team, Dr Kane shared his vision for the university.
Dr Kane said that having prior experience as controller of examination and director of internal quality assurance cell (IQAC), he was aware of and closely understands the problems prevailing in RTMNU.
"The examination system has become outdated," stated Dr Kane. Therefore the universally accepted 50-50 examination pattern is the need of the hour and it can to a great extent solve the problems of the university and students.
The new pattern will give students an opportunity to write objective, elaborate answers as well as multiple choice questions (MCQs). Question papers will not be same for all the students. Questions will be different for all. A question bank will be made for this. In all Kane's mission is to bring in positive change in the examination system prevailing in the university.
Why should colleges oppose?
Questions may arise from college management on why colleges should conduct subjective exams. Dr Kane explained that engineering colleges conduct sessional or semester exams in their college before university exam is held. Likewise, it will not be problem for other colleges also for conducting ' subjective' exams in their colleges.
