Recently, Bengaluru's Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni College for Women for the first time conducted paperless exam on a trial basis. This Bangalore University affiliated college conducted the paperless experiment on two exams, one on Constitution and Environmental Studies and the other one on, Computer applications.  


“We decided to do something new and introduced paperless examination using tabs. As these non-core subjects were multiple choice it was easy,” the college authorities was quoted by The New Indian Express as saying


The college collaborated with IPOMO company for tech related assistance to conduct the exams successfully. As per the college guidelines, this company uploaded the question papers using Mobile Mark Recognise technology (MMR). 


The question papers were in ABCD series ensuring that students get a different set of question paper to prevent cheating and other malpractices. 


“We have provided codes to each student, and they need to scan the quick response code before answering the paper. The tab will not respond until the exam time starts,” said a top official added.


The tabs for the exam was provided by the college and by clicking on submit button the students can complete their paper. Also, the advantage of paperless exam is that the students get their result immediately.
