The other benefit of Online is the transparency which has become very clear. The fast pace of online examinations have started a new era and particularly for MBA examinations CAT is the pioneer followed by most of the examinations which have gone online.
There are certain pros and cons with online examinations on the one hand exam conducting bodies like CAT, XAT, SNAP, CMAT, NMAT etc. are able to have more registrations of the candidates because application forms can be submitted online also. Whereas student prospective is slightly different and students still feel that sometimes paper pen exams can give little more scope of elaboration and this fact is vindicated by the fact that inspite of online XAT examination Essay has to still be written on a piece of paper.
Besides the above, online examinations positively create more challenges and not only the exam conducting bodies find some glitches during examinations but even students also find it a slight difficulty to recover from the error which might have occurred during the exam. Because most of the time the facility of the back and forth is not being given.
