Application of Exam processing
Conducting the exam and storing the results of each and every candidate in the order of the subject is the main purpose of the exam processing application.
This application also stores the questions and the answers given by each candidate in the proof table that will help for future verification. The modules contained in this application are the following.
Connecting to the database: In this module, the database is connected to the application with the help of user credentials like user id, server name, and password. Once it is connected to the database successfully, the application will display the login form of the student.
Student identification: This step allows the candidate to enter his/her credentials such as roll number, user id, and password that are given by the authority. If the login is successful, the question form will be displayed in front of the candidate with all the required options.
Result submission: If the candidate clicks the ‘submit’ button that is visible at the bottom of the question form after answering all the questions, the application will store the details of all questions and the answers given by the candidate. It also compares with correct answers and the marks reports will be displayed soon to the candidate.
