HS Council issues notification to control cheating, rowdy behaviour towards invigilators
Kolkata: In a bid to curb the practice of cheating and unruly behaviour with invigilators at the examination hall, the West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) has cracked the whip.
The Council has come up with a notification that should be followed at all the venues during the examination. It may be mentioned that till date, there were no specific rules on what should be done if a student is caught copying in the hall. The decision in this regard was usually taken by the concerned invigilator.
However from now, the invigilator will have to send the roll numbers of students to the Council and a committee that will be constituted soon will start a thorough probe regarding the matter. "The candidate's result will be withheld until the committee completes the probe," a senior official of the council added. The Council's notification also includes that the examination centres will ensure that an examinee does not carry a cell phone to the hall or take the answer script home after the examination.
The Council will also act tough if an examinee misbehaves with the invigilator or causes damage to the property of the venue during the examination process.
The president of WBCHSE Mohua Das on Thursday introduced a mock test paper for competitive examinations at its office in Salt Lake. "For the first time such a comprehensive set of question and answers of competitive examinations like NEET and the Joint Entrance have been launched. The book is of 700 pages and will be of immense help to students who will pursue medical and engineering after the Higher Secondary examinations," Das said. Last year the Council had released a book on Science subjects which received excellent response among the students.
