2200 candidates appear online entrance test for PhD, M. Phil admission in MKU

Madurai: Around 2200 candidates appeared in the online Common Entrance Examination on Saturday for admission to PhD and M Phil courses at Madurai Kamaraj University (MKU) for the academic year 2020-2021.

Previously, where the Common Entrance Test was conducted at the examination centers, this time due to the epidemic, the exam was conducted as an AI-online examination, in which candidates could participate from their homes.

“Despite some technical issues, the exam was conducted successfully. Out of 2200 candidates, three candidates were barred from writing the exam after issuing a warning for indulging in misconduct. Dr. M Krishnan, MKU Vice Chancellor, said that each invader monitored a batch of 30 students so that there was no misconduct.

VC said, “As it was an online exam, we were able to detect even the smallest changes in the candidates’ environment.”

During the examination, video and audio were recorded live through the microphone of the candidate and his device. The system for online examination used artificial intelligence to detect and record facial emotions, pupil movement or any other activities, including the presence of another person.

The exam was for two hours and candidates were required to answer 100 multiple choice questions (MCQs). MKU partnered with a new private company for this AI-protected exam.
