The universities upload questionnaires that need to be downloaded onto the portal. Students must write the exam with their cell phone or laptop camera turned on and, after completing the paper, upload a copy of the answer sheet for assessment. If students cannot upload answer sheets from home, they can use the nearby internet centers or send their answer scripts by mail.
Loyola College plans to begin exams on either September 21 or 23. “We are currently planning the exams. The pattern of the question paper will not change. Because of the shorter duration, students have more choices and answer fewer questions, said headmaster Thomas Amirtham.

Faculty members monitor the monitor students with a mobile camera and students must keep their cameras on for the entire duration of the test.
“To avoid unfair exam practice, we plan to ask analytical questions,” added Amirtham. The university administration plans to make special arrangements for 50 students with impaired vision.
Madras Christian College is planning online surveillance tests. “We plan to conduct exams September 22-29. We are also developing protocols for conducting internships and Viva-Voce,” said Headmaster P Wilson.
DG Vaishnav College and Stella Maris College have also informed the students about the online exams. The former is preparing a mobile app that students can use to upload answer sheets.
A circular from the University of Madras to all departments states: “The questionnaires will be emailed to the students 30 minutes in advance and the student will be given 30 minutes more time to scan and email answer sheets.” Exam would be conducted for 60 points.
