Education Minister Dipu Moni said the government is investigating the allegation of the distribution of wrong question papers on the first day of the SSC and equivalent examinations.
The minister came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after visiting an examination centre at Bakshibazar Alia Madrasa in the city on Sunday.
“Strict surveillance has been made sure to stop question paper leaks, and it will continue until the examinations end,” she said adding that the social media platforms are especially under close observation.
She said examinees must have to leave the question paper in the hall room if s/he needs to go out of the exam centre.
“This practice will help to prevent question paper leak through internet,” she told reporters.
The minister also sought co-operations from the media as well as the guardians of the candidates to stop leaking.
This year’s SSC and equivalent examinations started with the Bangla first paper on Saturday.
However, gross mismanagement reportedly marred the first day of the examinations as candidates at various centers across the country were given the wrong question paper sets according to a different syllabus.
This year, a total of 21,35,333 students from 28,682 institutions have registered for the exams.
