Assam Class X state board exams begin today

Guwahati: The Class X state board checks, conducted via the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (Seba), will start on Thursday, with around three.five lakh applicants set to look this year. The checks will start with the English paper on Thursday and conclude on March 6.

In a bid to stop students from adopting unfair approach and prevent doable paper leaks, CCTV cameras have been put in in all 857 examination centres. “From this year, we have now made it compulsory to put in CCTV cameras throughout all 857 examination centres in the state. If any examination centre fails to put in functioning CCTV cameras, Seba will terminate the contract of such centres from next year,” said Seba chairman RC Jain.

He added that as consistent with directions from the state government, Section 144 of the CrPC has been promulgated inside of 50-meter radius of all of the examination centres. Police pickets shall be set up outside the centres and flying squads shall be deployed to observe actions.

As doable paper leaks thru WhatsApp messages remains a concern for Seba, Jain has requested lecturers and exam officers not to carry their cell phones in “sensitive areas” of the exam centres, like confidential rooms the place query papers are taken care of. Students are not allowed to hold cell phones, good watches, calculators or different digital devices. If applicants need to depart inside of two hours after commencement of the exam, they'll have to hand over their questions paper to the invigilators. This step has been taken to prevent the query paper from being circulated outside whilst the examination is on.
