University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), Dehradun, has tied up with Mettl, an online assessment company, to provide a platform for university aspirants and existing distance-learning students to take entrance tests and semester exams from any location. Under this engagement, around 300 candidates have taken the UPESMET-2, an online MBA Entrance Test for admission to 10 MBA programs in the specialized sectors of Oil & Gas, Power, Energy,Infrastructure, Aviation, Port & Shipping, International Business and others.
"We are happy to engage with Mettl in conducting our online examination. Mettl’s platform has really helped us reach out to potential students in remote locations not only in India but also abroad. We are sure that Mettl’s disruptive technology would attract more universities in changing the method of conducting online examinations in India," says Dr. Parag Diwan, Vice Chancellor, UPES. The proctoring technology ensures that any attempt to cheat is captured and addressed real time during the test – including the candidate moving away
from the screen, opening multiple windows during the test, speaking on the mobile or getting a proxy to take the test. "The engagement with UPES opens a new chapter for us as its technology enabled platform will now play a key role in how online examinations are going to be conducted in the future," says Ketan Kapoor, CEO and Co-Founder, Mettl.
