One of the premier management institutes (Top 10) of India runs an independent Center of Distance Learning for providing management educations to working executives. More than 5,000 students from India and abroad take admission to the distance learning PGDBM from various parts of India and abroad.
Being Management Education and spread over 3 years of curriculum, there were 90+ subjects on which candidates are assessed. The candidates themselves come from various parts of India and abroad amounting to more than 70 locations. The test had to be conducted Online. Candidates were also from the defense forces in active duty at remote locations. Client needed to change the questions for each subject every 6 months. Also, case studies were part of the examination. Since each candidate had to appear for multiple subjects, at least 6 every semester, the exam had to spread across multiple days and multiple shifts every day.
The candidate data was owned by the client. We integrated our registration and slot booking system with the client master application where in candidates will log in and book their preferred day and time slot. Due to security and requirement of uninterrupted availability, exams were conducted on CBT and Remote Proctor mode, with questions papers being downloaded every day in encrypted form.
Our Remote Proctored system was integrated with the same booking system to enable candidates from remote and overseas locations to write exam in controlled environment with full remote proctoring enabled. The logistical challenge of conducting exams over multiple days at locations with very few candidates was managed without burdening the client with extra cost.
Each semester, more than 30,000 exams are conducted successfully for last 5 years now.
