Tripura professor develops robot to help health workers serving Covid-19 patients - education

In order to help the medical professionals serving COVID-19 patients, a young assistant professor has developed a robot, named ‘COVID-19 WARBOT’ that can serve food, medicines and other essential items to the patients without human intervention. “It’s a four-wheeled robot which I have developed at my home using the waste material. The main motivation behind making this robot is basically ensuring and safeguarding our health workers – doctors and nurses – who are working in COVID related hospitals,” said Harjeet Nath, Assistant Professor at Tripura University’s Chemical and Polymer Engineering Department.

“Some countries have already developed robots which are helping the healthcare workers a lot. This robot can deliver medicines, water bottles and food packets whenever required. There is also a camera if the patient wants to communicate to the doctor,” he added.

Harjeet shared that it took him two weeks to develop the robot by spending around Rs 25,000 and using spare parts like three motors, two rechargeable lead-acid batteries, transmitter and receiver and USB output.

The robot can carry the load of around 10-15 kilograms of materials like medicines, food, water and its operating range is 15-20 metres with a mobile phone or computer. It can work continuously for nearly an hour.

Harjeet said that he intends to handover the robot to the state government so that it can be used in COVID hospitals.

DU Admissions 2020: Registration likely to open from Jun 20, no trial for sports quota due to Covid-19 - education

The registration process for admission in Delhi University courses is likely to begin from June 20, but there will be no trials for sports and Extra-Curricular activities (ECA) due to the coronavirus pandemic, officials said on Wednesday. A meeting of the Standing Committee on Admissions decided on Tuesday that registration will be opened between June 20 and July 4 for all courses, said a member. The second window for registration will be opened for updation of marks after declaration of results by the CBSE. 

The cut-offs are likely to be announced in August, but it will depend also on when the CBSE declares its results. There will be no admission in ECA except for NCC and NSS and that too on the basis of the certificates as no trials will be conducted, the member said, adding this was decided keeping in mind the coronavirus situation. There will no trials for sports quota and the admission will be done on the basis of certificates only, he said. Another professor, who was present in the meeting said, the entire admission process will be online and students will not have to visit colleges. It was also decided that the documents which are bona fide and once submitted online on the basis of which approval is given for the admission by the college, cannot be rejected later on the premise that document is not acceptable, unless it is forged. 

The college can ask for additional information through phone or e-mail, the member said. “Another fact that was agreed to by the committee was that any discrepancy in the spelling of name or missing of surname in the certificates of SC/ST/OBC/EWS/PwD shall be verified from their other certificates rather than rejecting their admission,” he added. It was also agreed upon that the list of approved boards should be published in the undergraduate information bulletin so that the college admission committees know which boards are fake. The committee also decided that caste certificate once made need not to be renewed and only renewal of income certificate will be required. Therefore, latest income certificates would be sufficient and the caste certificate can be older, the member said.

Academic Council member Dr Arun Kumar Attree recommended that no fees, specially cancellation fee of Rs. 1000, should be charged from SC/ST/OBC/EWS and PwD. However, the committee did not agree to his recommendations, Attree said, adding he recorded his dissent.

“It is exorbitant especially in corona times. It is actually done to discourage students from changing their colleges or courses. In this process, rich students are able to get the course and college of their choice but poor and disadvantaged students are denied this opportunity because of high cancellation fees. “Three free movements must be allowed to these disadvantaged students without cancellation,” Attree had suggested.

The Mizoram government has once again postponed class-12 board examinations suspended midway due to the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to conduct it from July 1, an official said.

The examinations of Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) for remaining subjects in arts, science and commerce streams were supposed to be conducted from June 16 as per the revised schedule after these were postponed in April.

The remaining class-12 examinations will now be held between July 1 and 3, according to a notification issued by the Mizoram Board of School Education (MBSE) on Tuesday.

The examinations have been deferred as the government had imposed a complete lockdown till June 22, the official said.

About 4,700 students could not complete their board examinations in Economics, Chemistry, Sociology, Computer Science and Home Science, he said.

The examinations were suspended in March due to the lockdown.

The MBSE had, earlier, announced the resumption of the board examinations from April 22, which triggered stiff opposition from students citing various inconveniences amid the nationwide lockdown.

The authorities postponed it following an appeal by the central government to put on hold the examinations due to the lockdown.

The compartmental examinations for class-10 will also be held on July 1, the notification said.

Dharmendra’s name was on the list of 20 candidates whose names were in the diary found from the gang members arrested by police. Among 20, 18 got selected with the help of unfair means and the question papers were allegedly provided by gang members.

The racket busted by Soraon police two days back allegedly provided question papers to 69,000 assistant teachers’ recruitment aspirants in return of cash. Eight people, including the kingpin of the gang, were arrested in this connection. Later, the police arrested three aspirants who cleared the examination through the racket.

ASP KV Ashok, who led the operation, said three successful candidates, including Dharmendra, Vinod and another youth, were traced and arrested on Saturday. It came to light that Dharmendra got 142 marks out of 150 in the recruitment examination.

Delhi High Court refuses to interfere with DU open book exams for final year students - education

The Delhi High Court has said it would not interfere with Delhi University’s decision to hold open book online exams for final year students, but asked the varsity, UGC and the Centre to work out a solution to also enable disabled students to take the examinations.

The court said it was not going to interfere with DU’s decision as it has also decided to hold offline physical exams, once the present COVID-19 situation improves, for those students who could not participate in the examinations commencing from July 1.

A bench of Justices Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Asha Menon gave the varsity, University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Centre time till June 11 to work out a solution after meeting representatives of students with various disabilities, including visual impairment, and listed the matter for hearing on June 12.

It also said that meanwhile all the students should prepare for the open book examinations, scheduled to commence from July 1, and not assume that it would be delayed due to these proceedings.

The court, in its order passed on June 9, said it was only looking to iron out problems faced by persons with disabilities in participating in the exams and added that their difficulties would be addressed by the time the examinations commence.

The bench also asked the Centre, UGC and DU to consider having another set of question papers ready to hold exams immediately after the open book examinations for those who could not sit for it. The order came on a plea moved by the National Federation of the Blind challenging the DU’s decision to hold open book examinations on the ground that it violated rights of students with visual impairments and other disabilities.

The Federation wanted DU to assess performance of the disabled students of final year on the basis of their performance in previous semester and internal assessment.

In the alternative, it suggested holding offline exams for such students after colleges reopen.

No online classes for children from KG to 5th std: Karnataka government - education

Amid complaints about conduct of virtual classes, the Karnataka government on Wednesday decided to stop online classes for children from Kindergarten (KG) to class 5.

“Two decisions have been taken-online classes for LKG, UKG and primary classes should be stopped immediately. Also, collecting fees in the name of online classes should be stopped immediately,” Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar told reporters here.

He said,several complaints have been received regarding online classes, and he held discussions with experts, a body of private educational institutions and officials in this regard, and every one was of the opinion online classes cannot be an alternative to physical classes.

Discussions were also held on how to engage children during this period, with no clarity over the reopening of schools, he said.

A committee has been constituted under the leadership of Prof M K Sridhar to prepare guidelines on how to engage students and increase their knowledge, the minister said.

There has been pressure on the government to act, as parents have been complaining about online classes conducted by private schools even for kindergarten kids.

Further stating that the government had already issued a circular asking educational institutions not to hike fees on humanitarian grounds considering financial constraints of several people due to the COVID-19 pandemic and induced lockdown, Kumar said, if schools decide to reduce the fees amount, it will be a “very welcome move.” He noted that from June 25 SSLC (Class 10) exams were starting.

Before taking the decision he had consulted people from all walks of life, experts, representatives of political parties, the minister said.

“From June 25 to July 4, the exams will be held and safety of children is our utmost priority and we are taking all necessary steps in this regard.

Preparations for the exams are on in all districts, micro-level planning is being done,” he said, adding that Health, Transport and Home Departments have joined hands with Education department in this regard.

JEE Main 2020: Tips and tricks to ace Physics paper - education

JEE Main 2020: Joint Entrance Examination, or JEE, is an entrance test for admissions in various prestigious engineering colleges in the country. With the exam being postponed this year due to the pandemic, students have got extra time for preparation. Here are some tips and tricks to help you prepare for the physics section of the exam.

General points to be taken into consideration:

JEE Mains, being a competitive exam, it is all about scoring. We have a few smart tactics that can help to optimize your preparation:

1.It is necessary to have a concrete idea about the whole syllabus and to segregate your strong points.

2.Avoid those parts where you lag behind and usually take a lot of time and effort.

3.Always carry small chits of formulae; have a look at them and recollect them in your leisure time to remember formulae in an easy and effective way.

4.Practice previous years’ papers to have an idea of the trends of questions and take mock tests by setting the exact same time that’s allotted for the exam after learning the concepts.

5.While learning, NCERT is the most important book to brush up the concepts and HC Verma and DC Pandey are good for practice.

Also Read: JEE Main 2020: NTA gives one last application opportunity to students

Weightage of important topics:

A large part of the Physics paper in JEE Mains is dominated by questions from: Vector and Simple Mathematics {2-3 questions}, Mechanics [3-4 questions], Electrostatics [2-3 questions], Electricity and Magnetism [3-4 questions], Wave and Optics [2-4 questions], Modern Physics [3-5 questions] and Heat and Thermodynamics [2-3 questions]. These major topics make almost 65-75% of the complete paper.

Allocation of time to each topic [4-6 hrs/day]:

•Vector and simple Mathematics- 3 days

• Mechanics – 10-12 days

• Waves and oscillations- 5 days

•Electrostatics- 4-5 days

•Electricity and magnetism- 7-8 days

Final revision and question answering tactics:

1.No new concepts should be learned during the final revision.

2.During the final revision, only the short notes prepared by students or trusted sources should be revised instead of the whole book.

3.A day before the exam, sleep adequately, and except very important things nothing should be revised.

4.During the exam, one should make sure there is no extra burden of revision on you, let the mind be calm but confident and content.

5.One must focus on easy questions first [ ~ 50-60% of the whole question paper], then moderate [ 25-35%] and at last the tough questions [15-25%]

6.Students should fill the OMR sheet very carefully without any lag as the whole effort is judged on the basis of the sheet.

Quicker calculations and a strong sense of your fundamentals are what help you in the long run.

Solving good mock tests is important as it gives you an idea of your weak and strong areas and the time taken to solve questions from each topic.

Last year, there were over 11.5 lakh applicants in JEE Main. Students should remember that the best strategy to crack this exam is to keep your mind calm and give it your best shot.

CBSE 12th Exams 2020: Plea in SC seeks quashing of board’s notification to conduct remaining exams - education

A plea has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking quashing of a notification of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for conducting the remaining examinations of Class XII from July 1 to July 15 amid the increase in number of COVID-19 cases across the country.

The plea, filed by some parents of students who are appearing in class XII examination, has sought a direction to the CBSE to declare the results on the basis of exam already conducted and to calculate it on an average basis with internal assessment marks of the remaining subjects.

Raising concern over the safety of lakhs of students, the plea has said that they might be exposed to COVID-19 infection if they have to appear in the examinations amid the increase in number of cases of virus infection.

It urged the apex court to quash the May 18 notification of the CBSE by which the date sheet for remaining exams of Class XII was declared and also to stay it till the plea is decided by the court.

“The said petition would also demonstrate the extent of discriminatory and arbitrariness conduct of the respondent/CBSE in issuing the notification for holding of the remaining examination and that too in the month of July, 2020 wherein as per the AIIMS data, the said COVID-19 pandemic would be at its peak,” the plea said.

It alleged that considering the gravity of COVID-19 pandemic, the CBSE has cancelled the examinations of Class X and XII for its around 250 schools which are situated abroad and has adopted the criteria of awarding marks on the basis of either practical exams conducted or the internal assessment marks.

“It is highly regretful that the respondents (CBSE and Ministry of Human Resource Development) herein have no genuine concern about putting the lives at peril of all the students pan India and have no explanation whatsoever in insisting upon holding the said examination in India,” the plea claimed. It said that in April this year, the CBSE had directed the schools to promote students of classes IX and XI to the respective next grades on the basis of school based assessments.

It said that on May 25, the Ministry of Human Resource and Development had announced about conducting of exams for classes X and XII class students in almost 15,000 exam centres as against 3,000 centres which were used earlier.

“Ensuring proper cleanliness and safety standards as prescribed by the concerned government in COVID-19 situation in those 15,000 exam centres spreading over length and breadth of the country including rural sectors would not only be risking health and life of children but also would be an exercise in futility and an eyewash,” the plea said. It said even if it is to be assumed that 50 per cent of coronavirus cases are asymptomatic then the students, who will appear in the exams, could be potential careers posing a great risk to themselves and also their family members. The plea said that several premier educational institutes, like Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), has also cancelled its exams including those of final year students because of the pandemic situation. The plea has also raised concern over the issue where an examination centre might fall within the COVID-19 containment zone.

Bar Council of India tells varsities to promote all law students, barring those in final year - education

The Bar Council of India (BCI)—a statutory body of the country that regulates legal practice and education in India—has asked universities to promote all law students, except those in the final year, on the basis of their previous year’s marks and performance in the internal examination of the current year, inform officials.

In a missive sent to vice-chancellors and registrars of all law varsities as well as the principals, deans, and head of departments of all centres of legal education of the country including Allahabad University (AU), BCI secretary Srimanto Sen has sent fresh guidelines as decided by BCI for promotion of law students to the next year and the criteria for law exams amid the Covid-19 crisis, said Dean (Law) of AU Prof RK Chaubey.

He said that AU will now have to take the necessary action as per the directives issued by BCI.

AU PRO Shailendra Mishra said that the university was committed to adhering to BCI guidelines and that BCI letter would now be put before the appropriate bodies of the central university for necessary action.

The missive, a copy of which is with HT, says that the general council of BCI in its meeting held on May 24 has resolved to pass these resolutions and guidelines, in the light of detailed guidelines issued by the University Grants Commission on April 27.

BCI has held that final year students of 3 years and 5 years of law courses may be allowed to appear in online examinations. However, the Universities must adopt an alternative strategy for conducting examinations for those students who are unable to avail the online examinations for any reason, it adds.

For intermediate semester students, the BCI has asked institutions to promote them on the basis of performance of previous years and marks obtained in internal examination of the current year. The Universities are directed to conduct the end semester examination within a month of reopening of the colleges, the letter directs.

BCI has made plain that universities must adhere to Covid-19 protocol and ensure that the norms of social distancing are adhered to on the campus and all classrooms and examination halls are sanitized from time to time. The safety and health of the students should not be compromised at any cost, it makes clear.

The Universities have also been instructed to maintain the highest academic standards and integrity in conducting the examinations.

QS Rankings 2020: IIT Bombay’s position dips, University of Mumbai out of the list - education

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay is among the only three institutes in the top 200 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings 2021. However, its performance has dipped as the premier institute dropped 20 ranks in the list – from 152nd position in 2020 to 172 in the 2021 list.

The QS World Rankings are announced a year in advance. Though overall rankings have been announced, other lists based on employability, subject-wise rankings will be released over the next few months. This year, QS revealed that their work was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The only two other institutes making into top 200 are Bengaluru’s Indian Institute of Science (IISc) at the 154th position from 184th rank last year and Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi on the 193rd position, down from the 182nd rank it held in the 2020 list.

“While IIT-Bombay is pleased to have retained number one position in India, the drop in global rankings is something we are concerned about. It appears to be linked to the Academic Reputation (AR) portion of the rankings which constitute 40% of the total score. Our AR score remained close to last year’s so we will take this up with QS,” said Subhasis Chaudhuri, director, IIT-Bombay. He added that the institute’s student-faculty ratio has also dropped due to the introduction of the category for economically weaker section, which is likely to have affected the overall score.

Surprisingly, University of Mumbai has no mention in the list this year. Last year, the varsity was placed between 801-850 ranking, but the university does not reflect anywhere on the list this year.

The performance of universities is measured on various parameters such as academic reputation, employer reputation, citation per faculty, faculty student ratio, international faculty and international students.

Other institutes making it into the QS Rankings list this year include IIT-Madras and IIT-Kharagpur, both institutes witnessing a drop in their rankings. While IIT Madras has dropped four spots and stands on the 275th rank this year, IIT Kharagpur has dropped 33 spots from 281 to the 314 rank this year.
