Many of them had wished that the exam was held later to avoid the risk of Covid infection, but an equal number thought it would be better to get them out of the way without losing an academic year
The first test day on Tuesday was scheduled for admission to the Bachelor of Architecture and Planning and had fewer aspirants. There were 100-140 students in each test center.
The exams for entry into engineering institutions, which a much larger group will try, begin on Wednesday.
Shruti Mehra, accompanied by her father, took a taxi from Laxmibai Nagar in South Delhi to the examination center in Vivek Vihar in East Delhi.
She was satisfied with the arrangement of the exams.
“We were asked to take off our masks and get surgical masks there. There was no physical search, just a metal detector, ”she said. “There were only 26 candidates in the classroom, so there were plenty of gaps in front of and behind us. We were told that on the evening shift, the examinees would sit in the chairs that were available on our shift. ”
Mehra, who will also write the engineering exam on Wednesday, said that unlike January, there was no biometric participation.
To participate, the four-person supervisory team used a computer tablet to scan the hall ticket and the student’s photo.
