Class X Board papers to be opened in front of students

first_imgIn a departure from the norm, the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday announced that question paper packets will be opened in front of Class X candidates shortly before the commencement of the examination. “From 2019, the sealed question packets of Madhyamik examination (Class X board exam) will be opened by invigilators in front of students in the examination hall and distributed accordingly,” Board president Kalyanmoy Ganguly said. Sources said the decision came in the wake of reports that the headmaster of a Jalpaiguri school, during the 2018 secondary examination, opened sealed question papers 35 minutes before the scheduled time. The headmaster was suspended by the board later.last_img
