Background: Due to the COVID pandemic, all the educational institutions, including medical colleges, are closed for students, and teaching methodology shifted from traditional offline teaching to online teaching.
After the shift of teaching to the online mode from April 2020, the Narayana Medical College, like other Medical colleges, started online teaching and evaluation. Not much evidence is available about the student’s perception of online evaluation.
Objective: An online survey was conducted to study first-year medical student’s perceptions about the online evaluation through a structured questionnaire.
Materials and Methods: The study is conducted using a closed structured questionnaire containing ten questions with multiple responses and Yes or No responses. The study subjects included first-year MBBS students.
Results: The majority of the students are more comfortable with offline examination though they feel that it can be combined occasionally with an online examination in the post-COVID situation.
Conclusion: Students prefer offline examination to online examination, methods to combine offline, and online examinations need further study.
