An Indian University with multi-locational campuses is now able to process and announce exam results within a couple of hours of conducting the exams
Our client is a renowned educational brand in the higher education sector in India. A name to reckon with, the University operates 16 campuses of higher education across India. With a student base of more than 20,000 students, the educational institute was looking for ways to process exam results faster. It was also on the lookout to improve operational and academic efficiency of staff and faculty.
The Indian University is one of the premier names in higher education in India. With a history of ___ years in the education sector, the University is forever looking for ways to improve its systems and processes and provide the best campus experience to its students.
The University, in doing so, also wanted to improve operational efficiency of its employees who, were spending considerable time processing results of 20,000+ students. Adoption of a technology-based solution would reduce paperwork and streamline workflow of faculty who could then focus better on research and pedagogy.
The prestigious University conducts an annual screening test to select students for its courses. Thousands of applicants aspiring to enrol in the courses throng the University each year. But, only a few get selected. Aspirants who clear the test are granted admission as per their score. The test processing was mainly paper-based just as the internal exams. So was the pre-examination process.
Due to the manual nature, the results took a considerable time to be processed and the University often lost some of the best aspiring candidates to its competing institutes/Universities. Processing results faster was the only way to avoid this loss.
Besides this, some of the other problem areas that the University wanted a fix for were:
Maintaining attendance records
Records of students meeting the attendance cut-off as a qualifying criterion for appearing in exams
Performance in internal assessments
Need of a technological solution was an urgent need for the University.
Luckily, Unikul’sCDx was a perfect fit for the problem.
Unikul’s flagship product – Campus Dynamix (CDx)-SLCM solved not just the problems faced by the University but its solution also covered many other areas of campus management that were earlier not slated for change.
Adopting CDx-SLCM helped the University in
Conducting internal assessments as per University’spolicy (no of assessments and assessment total).
Complete automation of the examination process that made all earlier hand-offs redundant
The long processing was reduced to a mere few hours and results could be declared within a short period of time in the absence of manual management of examination

The system also gave visibility to parents on their ward’s performance thus elevating the overall experience

Due to the robust and reliable nature of CDx, the University can now stick to its promised date of result announcement which earlier wavered dueto manual processes.
