Site crashing, questions missing causes panic
New Delhi : The Open Book Examinations (OBE) turns into mockery show for the students of Delhi University due to number of glitches and technical failures. Many students were unable to login, several complained of non mobile accessible site, website crashing, non availability of right question papers & clarity of question reported.

Another student said “It has been 30 minutes since the mock test began and the site is not operating as it is crashed.
