TNI Bureau: Odisha Board of Secondary Education (BSE) has decided that the students would appear the matric examination at their respective schools from this year. The move is a major relief for the students, who were facing transportation problem while going to other centres for the exam. The BSE has chosen as many as 2,500 schools as examination centres.
School & Mass Education minister Rabinarayan Nanda said that arrangements will be made for the students to appear the exam. However, teachers of the respective schools will be shifted to other centres to avoid any illegal practice during exam. Also the subject teacher will not be allowed as invigilators during the test.
In order to maintain discipline and avoid the question paper leak, 303 centres have been identified to keep the question papers in safe place. The booklet will be delivered to the exam centres before the commencement of the exam.
To avoid the malpractice during exam, three-tire squading system has been introduced. The results will be published by the end of April. This year, about 5 lakh regular students and 63,000 ex-regular candidates will appear the matric exam.
