Uttar Pradesh once again bags its name for malpractice in board exams. The English exam yesterday, was postponed after incidents of mass copying were reported. According to an ANI report, students at UP were caught in the camera during a mass cheating session in the exams. Relatives and friends of examinees were seen helping them giving notes openly, as caught on the camera.
In a report by Times of India, two students in Munna Bhai style were caught after they were found writing exams in proxy of two students in Mainpuri.
Measures taken to curb malpractices
In a bid to prevent cheating in UP board exams, newly-formed Uttar Pradesh government under Adityanath Yogi has published helpline numbers today.
The state government has published two numbers--one, WhatsApp 9454457241--and another landline-0522 2236760-to report incidents of copying.
Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who also has the education portfolio, expressed that all is well as far as the ongoing Uttar Pradesh board examinations are concerned.
Sharma made the assumption after he made surprise inspections of at least three examination centres in Lucknow and in neighbouring Barabaniki district in the wake of reports of 'mass copying' in the board examinations on March 25.
"Today, I conducted surprise inspections at three colleges, where students were appearing for the UP Board examinations. As far as the conduct of examinations is concerned, I am satisfied," the minister told PTI.
