UP boards cheating
The latest on the list is the English paper cheating in class 12 in the Uttar Pradesh Board exam. The test, which was on Wednesday, was suspended in 24 districts in the state after one of the two sets of questionnaires leaked. According to reports, 17 people, including the school inspector (Ballia) Brijesh Mishra and a state schoolteacher, identified as Ajit Ojha, have been arrested in the case.
Haryana Class 10 Cheat Case
In another recent case, relatives of the graduates used Bluetooth devices and paper snaps to help the candidate cheat on the test. Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH) graduation for class 10 began on Thursday. More than 3.64 lakh students appeared in the social science test at 1,457 degree centers across the state. According to the media report, friends and relatives of many students were found throwing answer fraud sheets into the graduation center’s premises by climbing the boundary walls of schools in many places in the state. In some places, relatives were found helping their children using Bluetooth devices, the Hindustan Times reported.
Matte paper leak
Second on the list is Bihar’s Class 10 Maths paper leak. The board had to cancel the class 10 math test in 2022, which was planned for 17 February. The leak came after a large part of the students had claimed that the questionnaire was circulating on social media before the magazine started at 25 degree centers. It was held later on March 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Due to this, there was a major delay in the declaration of BSEB cadastral results in 2022.
CBSE term 1 exam cheat
This year CBSE term 1 board exam is alleged to have been disrupted by malpractice. A CBSE Schools Management Association (CSMA) claims that many schools shared the questionnaire with students before the test. Because students were asked to come to the test from their own schools, CSMA claimed that many teachers helped students with answers. In a letter to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), an association in Tamil Nadu, CSMA said that teachers provide students with the answer keys, in addition to leaking questions through the Local Area Network and WhatsApp. The letter also calls on the board to abolish the CBSE term 1 degree.
