With several instances of question papers getting leaked on social media prior to exams, the authorities of the Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Odisha, have lodged a complaint in this regard at the Cyber Police Station in Cuttack, on Saturday.  

The BSE has urged the Cyber Police Station to look into the matter and take stern action against those involved in such illegal activities. 

The secretary of the BSE stated in a press note, “The Class-X High School and Madhyama Half Years-examination-2023 are being conducted from October 4 to 7 as per the scheduled programme notified by the BSE.”

The BSE also made it clear that question papers of all subjects had been handed over to all district education officers (DEOs) on September 29 to distribute the same to the schools under their respective jurisdictions with clear instructions to conduct the examinations with all possible precautions.

“The schools shall conduct the examination and evaluate the Answer Books and preserve the marks at their end. There is no provision of uploading the marks since the exam has no weightage in AHSC/Madhyama exam which will be conducted directly by the BSE(O) during February-March’24”, the BSE secretary's statement said, expressing concerns that it was unfortunate to notice questions being leaked prior to the date of the examination as known from some of the links on YouTube.
