            The very fact that the result sheet was hacked and the hacker ( may be internal) phoned to the failed students, giving details of marks, and that by paying money the failed student could get required marks fifteen days before the results also needs to be considered and corrected. There are FIR's on this and police have already caught some hackers. I had also filed FIR when the hacker phoned up my ward. The examination board have to clarify and notify on this very important aspect, when the security system relating to results is breached and a blatent demand for awarding desired marks is made. The Board people must come out and inform the public as to what extent they have been able to chech the effect of hacking of result sheet.

                I tell u that a passer of bihar board exAm is muh credible than toppers from punjab, haryana, delhi, up mp gujarat boards and students there, as other states cheating is done full fledged as well as full liberal marking is done. These guys will not compete in national entrances with those passing bihar board. Whoever has passed it, he is a genuine passer and merit guy.
