At a time when Plus II students are worried over question papers going viral on social media platforms, Ashok Kumar Nayak, the Examination Controller of the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) on Tuesday advised students and their parents not to fall into the trap of miscreants. 

“The question papers doing rounds on social media are fake ones. Students shouldn’t believe in them. Besides, some people would target gullible students and fleece them promising more marks in certain subjects. Stay away from them.  We will lodge police complaints at cyber police stations against those who are spreading such rumours,” said Nayak. 

The CHSE Plus II board examinations will begin from tomorrow (March 1). More than 3.5 lakh students will appear for the examination. For this, a total of 1,145 examination centres have been set up across Odisha.

While 2,19,110 students will appear in the Arts stream,  91,379 and 23,148 students will appear in the Science and Commerce streams, respectively.
The CHSE has also set up 202 examination management hubs where the question papers will be kept before being dispatched to the exam centres. These hubs have already received the questions papers since February 25. Question papers from these hubs will be dispatched to the exam centres at 7 AM, three hours before the exam time, i.e. 10AM.
