What is the meaning of Open Book Exam ?

Many students don’t know what is the meaning of Open Book Exam. Here we are providing the meaning of Open Book Exam. Open book exams allow you to take notes, texts or resource materials into an exam hall. They test your ability to find and apply information and knowledge, so are often used in subjects requiring direct reference to written materials, like law statutes, statistics or acts of parliament.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) will introduce open book examination system from 2017. This decision was announced at ICAI on Friday. Other initiatives and ICAI’s future plans were also discussed at the meeting. There are three phases in CA examinations-first, second and third phase, which are the final exams. The open book system will be implemented in the third phase. If all goes well, the new syllabi policies will be prepared by the end of 2015 and students appearing for 2016 exams will be under transitional provision, meaning, they can either opt for the existing scheme or the open book scheme. However, the open book system will be made compulsory from 2017. The main aim behind introducing the open book system is to minimise rote learning methods and not check the students’ memory power.
