IGNOU goes conventional, scraps online exams, defers IGNEAT

New Delhi: With technical glitches marring the idea of conducting exams online, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) seems to have learnt a bitter lesson after burning its fingers.

With what was supposed to be IGNOU’s first attempt for online admissions through the IGNOU Engineering Aptitude Test (IGNEAT), has now been deferred to December 27, 2009, and will not be conducted online.

According to the university officials, the exam would be conventional - Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) based.

Following server failure, the online admission test for IGNOU’s full-time engineering programme had to be cancelled on October 31.
