The Examination Division of the YCMOU is headed by the Controller of Examinations.
It conducts over 300 examinations in a year. A huge number of students appear for these examinations annually. All the pre and post examination work up to result declaration and the conferment of the degrees and diplomas through an annually held convocation fall within the purview of the Examination Section. Despite the voluminous work handled by this Section, the examination results of almost all the academic programmes are declared within the stipulated period of 45 days from the date of the last examination paper.
There are three sections in the examination Division.
