He added that the state government has asked police to monitor examination centers.

"Care has been taken to maintain the sanctity of the examination. In sensitive centers, officials have been asked to keep video footage if they see any malpractice going on," Hazarika added.

Sources in Seba said, in some districts, the authorities will restrict the entry of people, including guardians, in the examination centers. Seba has identified 66 centers in the state as sensitive and hypersensitive, Hazarika said.

Of the total 4,03,228 board examinees this year, 3,21,103 will appear in the HSLC examination for the first time. In AHM, 9,014 candidates will appear for the first time.

"The Class X board examination is indeed the first major examination of my life. Today we shall appear for our English paper," said Hemen Rabha, a board examinee.
