ICSI has introduced Open Book Exams for specific subjects of CS Professional. This would be applicable from June 2014 Attempt and onwards
The emphasis throughout would be in assessing the students’ understanding of the subject, applying their minds, rather than the ability to memorise large texts or rules or law.
This is to inculcate and develop skills of creative thinking, problem solving and decision making amongst students of its Professional Programme and to assess their analytical ability, real understanding of facts and concepts and mastery to apply, rather than to simply recall replicate and reproduce concepts and principles in the examination.
