The chairman reminded the candidates that the results of the examinations and the documentation will be available to the candidates only through ‘digital lockers’, that is, login accounts, for which they would need Aadhaar cards. “The form-filling process will be completely online to ensure error-free data of the students,” The Times of India quoted him as saying.
The exam would be conducted via the optical mark recognition (OMR) sheets which would be given to students at the time of the exam, which would be divided from the main paper at a later stage when checking for the answers, the report said. “An OMR sheet and it’s respective answer sheet would be identified with the help of a bar code,” The report quoted Kishor as saying, while adding that this system would bar the examiners from noticing a particular response sheet.
In light of the recent scandal involving the Bihar toppers, the BSEB seems to have made the examination and the result process more stringent. The chairman informed that certificates issued from next month would have 12 different security features to avoid any forgery, which would help in verification of the certificates, the report said.
