PUBLISH DATE 19th February 2020

The Board of Secondary Examination (BSE ) has put in place a water-tight security system to prevent question paper leak during the High School Certificate (HSC) 2020 exam.

The exam will begin from Wednesday and end on March 2, informed a BSE official.

"This year we have taken precautions to prevent question papers from going viral so a secret coding of papers has been done. If anyone attempts to leak the paper, immediately the centre will be identified through the security code. Subsequently the exact paper can be identified and we can take immediate action," informed Hajra..

Along with matric exam, tests for State Open School, Madhyama Sanskrit apart from Class IX vocational examination will be held.

"A total of 5,60,891 students will take in the HSC exam this year. The exam will be held in 2,888 centres across the state from 10am to 12.30pm," said Hajra.

One hour will be given for objective question paper from 10 to 11am and subsequently subjective question paper will be given to students at 11am. Students will get extra 15 minutes for mathematics paper.

Special squads have been formed to check malpractice. A total of 69 special flying squads will check cheating, Hajra said. A group of retired lecturers have been roped in to act as flying squad members.

A total of 1,000 examination centres have been identified as sensitive and there CCTV cameras installed for surveillance. The footage will be monitored by officials from a control room in BSE office.

There will be 307 nodal centres in the state and these will be used to store question papers amid 24x7 security. The papers will be dispatched to examination centres through special vans, said an official.

Three-layer security system has been introduced for smooth conduct of the exam. Question papers will be opened in presence of all officials, including examination observers, at centres at 9.30am.

No mobile phone is allowed in the exam centres and even the centre superintendent has to deposit mobile phone in the office before beginning of the exam. Same will be followed by invigilators too, added Hajra.
