BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Dear Higher Secondary candidates, are you planning to bring mobiles in the examination hall, like the Madhyamik students? Well, not anymore. This time be prepared because a Bigg Boss will be watching you inside the examination hall. To be more precise, this time the Bigg Boss will be your invigilator.
Taking lesson from the recently-completed Madhyamik (Secondary) examination where there were series of incidents of question paper leak on social media, for the first time West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education has decided to depute an invigilator inside each examination hall to keep a check on the mobile usage among the examinees. Carrying mobile by the students and teachers inside the examination hall is strictly prohibited during examination.
In the Madhyamik examination, there were several incidents where question papers were allegedly leaked on social media. The Higher Secondary Council has taken several steps to prevent question paper leak. The Higher Secondary Council had implemented the rules of deputing an invigilator to check on the mobile usage by the students five years ago. But this year, they are going to depute invigilators to keep a watch on the examinees in each examination hall so that no one can use mobile phones inside the hall.
The candidates will be told not to carry and use mobile phone inside the hall at the time of entering the examination centre. They will also be told that their entire examination will be cancelled if they are found carrying mobile phone.
If any teacher carries mobile phone, then he/she has to deposit it to the principal of the school.
Best of luck students.
