Dear Sir

Sub: Release of on-line exams software of Version 0.5 and the question
bank for conducting quiz exams of second cycle for II B.Tech., III
B.Tech. and IV B.Tech. I Semester courses

The question bank for conducting 2nd on-line quiz exams of II B.Tech., III
B.Tech. and IV B.Tech. I Semester courses have been made available in
the exam portal. The question-bank for the subjects listed in the
annexure-I shall be kept in the exam portal by 26th October, 2008. The
colleges are requested to schedule the on-line exams accordingly.

The new online exams software (version 0.5) has been released along
with the question bank. In this new version of the software i) a service to
generate the consolidated internal marks report of all theory and lab
subjects of a specified branch/section and ii) services to take the
complete database dump and restore the database, are included. The
steps to be followed for executing these two services are included in
Annexure-II. The system administrators are requested to take the
complete database dump on daily-basis during the period of
examinations. If you wish to replace the old server with a new one you are
requested to restore the database dump in the new server.

A new examination portal has been designed with an improved look and
feel. This new exam portal is made available at the IP address . The principals are requested to update college
information in college information service of principal account. This is
mandatory. The college system administrators are requested to use this
new portal for all uploads and downloads from the college-end. For any
constructive inputs for the more effective use of new portal, you are

requested to give your feedback in the feedback service of the new portal.
The college administrators are requested to use the old portal also in addition to the new portal for all uploads. The
features and organization of the services in the new portal are described
in Annexure-III.

The Principals are requested to send the branch/section-wise consolidated
internal marks report of all theory and lab subjects which are generated
using the on-line exams package. This printout must be taken in
landscape layout. The Principal must sign (with stamp) at the
bottom of each page of this marks report. If there are any
corrections proposed in this report, the Principals can do so by stating the
reasons for it on a separate letter. If any student is detained due to
shortage of attendance, the entire student record has to be stricken-off
with red-ink pen. All such cases are to be attested by the Principal. The
Principals are requested to i) upload the marks report to the new exam
portal (in addition to old portal) and ii) send the hard-copy consolidated
marks report to the Director of Evaluation, by 8th November, 2008.

Few of the colleges haven’t sent the profiles of students of II B.Tech., III
B.Tech. and IV B.Tech. I Semester courses till now. If these colleges find it
difficult to extract the profiles, install the new online exams software
(Version 0.5) and retry again. Unless the profiles are sent, the end-
semester hall-tickets cannot be generated.

Yours Sincerely
