mUni has developed Pariksha which meets and in some areas exceeds the requirements of an institution in terms of traditional examinations. Congratulation to the entire team of mUni for their efforts in making Pariksha available to us at such a short notice”

Dr. Hema Date, Professor& Dean (SA), Decision Sciences and Information systems at NITIE said that “NITIE has provided valuable inputs and suggestions which were quickly adopted by the mUni team to make mUniPariksha the platform of choice for NITIE and perhaps in future for every educational institute."

Students were given three choices to attempt the exam. First, write in the text editor on the laptop; second, write the answers in a word document and upload it on the testing platform; third, Hybrid Mode (Online + Pen & Paper).
