In order to check malpractice, the Bihar Board has adopted some stringent measures including a ban on footwear inside exam centers. Despite the winter chill, the students will have to remove their socks, shoes when they sit for Class 12 examinations which begin from February.
Speaking to indianexpress.com, Rajeev Dwivedi, PRO, BSEB said, “To prevent cheating in the examinations, the board has formed a special team of invigilators. So for every 25 candidates, one invigilator has been assigned. The students are restricted to enter the examination center with shoes and socks.”
“To make sure that the students entering the examination center are not carrying any cheats, gadgets, electronic devices, there will be two steps of checking. At first, the students will be examined thoroughly by the center staff and then by the invigilator assigned by the board. The invigilator will be held responsible if the students are found with such things further,” PRO, BSEB said.
