Can technology be used for stopping leakage of question papers in board examinations?Since yesterday the print as well as electronic media is abuzz with news about leakage of question papers of CBSE board examination and announcement of re-examination in one subject each in 10th and 12th board examinations. It is also being said that the Prime Minister himself has expressed his unhappiness about the developments.
CBSE board has comparatively better reputation and perhaps better systems also. So far copying or cheating in state board examinations of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh have become a routine though this year few lakh students had abandoned the examinations due to stringent measures adopted by the government of Uttar Pradesh.
We have made much progress in technology on almost all fronts. Can technology be used for stopping leakage of question papers in board examinations?
