Bengaluru: The Unified University College Management System’s (UUCMS’s) examination-related software and ‘e-Sahamati’, an initiative for authenticating electronic academic records were launched on Monday January 24. Both initiatives are said to make the processes paperless.

Minister for Higher Education and IT/BT Dr. C. N. Ashwath Narayan on launching the initiatives at Vidhana Soudha, said, UUCMS’s examination activity software will benefit lakhs of higher education students in about 3800 affiliated colleges across the state and all the universities including private varsities, every year. Further, he said, the software developed by E-Governance, State Government would save Rs. 60 Crore which universities used to spend for outsourcing the exam-related works.

Through this UUCMS’s third module has been put into place following the launch of admission and academic, and classroom management modules last August and December, respectively. Two persons from every university have been provided with hands-on training regarding the effective usage of the platform. By coming June remaining 7 modules will be rolled out in a phase-wise manner, he informed.

“Besides helping to reduce examination fee this software facilitates digital evaluation, online examination, providing hall ticket through online, managing practical batches, to pay exam fees online and also to get marks cards online. This also curbs malpractices such as fake marks card scams etc. The digital platform is created in such a way so as to provide freedom for universities to set the specification as per their norms,” Narayan explained.

UUCMS’s software has been prepared by considering the provisions of National Education Policy (NEP-2020) like the ‘Multy Entry Multy Exit’ option and awarding relevant certificates for those who discontinue for various reasons, he told.
