Sindh exam boards lend a deaf ear to cheating, paper leak reports
The cheating trend seemed to be unabated as for the fifth consecutive day on Friday the matriculation papers kept leaking out in the examination halls which have been conducting exams under the Sindh Intermediate and Secondary Boards, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Though the administration has imposed Section 144 around the examination centres, but students easily managed to sneak smartphones inside the halls. Today, it was Physics exam of grade nine and students were seeing copying answers from their phones openly in the presence of their invigilators.
The invigilating teams of the education boards were nowhere to be seen nor any action against the cheating mafia was taken. The mafia solved the Physics paper in 10 minutes and shared it on Whatsapp group.
Today the Physics and Mathematics papers of Matric and Chemistry, Biology and Physics papers of grade nine were leaked.
In Mehrabpur and Nawab Shah, the Mathematics paper of grade nine was out before time and within minutes the solved paper appeared on social media. The solved paper was being sold on Whatsapp for Rs1,000.
The Government High School, Kambar and Government Bago Dero High School in Kambar district upheld their cheating tradition, as students freely used smartphones in the examination halls.
The Larkana Board has established 155 examination centres across the district to conduct the Matriculation exams where the cheating practice is still going on without any check.
However, in Sukkur division, the board administration to some extent has geared into action as assistant commissioners conducted raids of different examination halls on the orders of Sukkur Deputy Commissioner Javed Ahmad. Assistant Commissioner Rana Umair visited several examination centres in Sukkur and his team caught many students cheating in the exam and recovered mobile phones and guide books from their possession. The AC showed his anger over the dereliction of the examination staff and asked them to take measures to stop cheating in the exam. Notwithstanding, the cheating was in full swing in many examination centres in Sukkur.
