up board, maths paper, up board mass cheating, Girl students are cheating during the maths paper at a Ballia school in Uttar Pradesh

All security measures claim by the Uttar Pradesh Board falls flat as on Tuesday, Class 10 students were caught mass cheating on camera at a Ballia school. As per ANI report, several students were seen copying maths paper from each other while some opened books to find solutions. Few students went outside their examination hall and exchanged notes.

A similar incident is reported in Mathura’s Radha Gopal Higher Secondary School where education mafia entered the exam hall to give chits to the students appearing for the maths paper.

Mass cheating is turning out to be an annual ritual in India. Last year too, hundreds of students sitting for UP Board examinations in Mathura were caught on camera passing notes. These students were freely seeking help from people outside the examination centres.

Among the most famous incidents was reported in 2015 in Bihar’s Vaishali district, when families/ friends of the candidates had climbed the walls of the exam hall and were providing answers to their wards.

To tackle cheating, UP Board had arranged CCTV cameras. But as reports suggest, the cameras were either not functioning properly or were inadequate.

Also a HT report claims that the UP Board has decided to re-examine answer sheets of all candidates who score over 90 per cent in their Class 12 or 10 exams this year.

    THIS is the reason why equally important exams should be held throughout the year and not just once.lt;br/gt;Why? Because having more exams means increased chance of getting caught cheating which means justice to students who respect the exam rules.lt;br/gt;When one SINGLE exam is given such extreme importance, students would do anything to get maximum marks. lt;br/gt;Education ministry wake up, do something, come up with a logical solution. Adding cameras isn't the only solution

                            Why do these buddhus want to cheat? Even if they get 100% marks, they still need to pay bribes to get even a peon's job! Can't the state government simply present all students degrees with a declaration that they have ped in the first cl! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;After all, it is the Government which cares a hoot for a degree, and is more interested in collecting the bribe!
