Cuttack, Mar 1:
With the annual High School Certificate (HSC) currently underway in Odisha, the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) has allowed the centre superintendents to open the General Science question paper bags, a day before the examinations, to ensure that they are placed in order.
Talking to the media, BSE president Prof Dakshya Prasad Nanda to the media said as per the schedule, the Regular Ex-Regular (New) students will sit for the General Science subject tomorrow for which the question papers would be sent from nodal centres to the examination centres today.
“We have requested all centre superintendents that the question papers are packed inside a gunny bag. After the question papers are reached, they should open the gunny bag immediately. Inside the gunny bag, there is a cloth lining packing on which a label has been marked mentioning the date of the examination, the subject and the number of question papers. This will help them to verify whether the question papers belong to Science subject and the number of question papers is equal to the number of the students appearing in the respective centres. If they find any discrepancy, they will immediately inform either the concerned nodal in-charge, district education officer (DEO), Controller of Examinations or the concerned officers in charge of the examinations so that there will be no problem in the smooth conduct of the examinations”, Nanda added.
The examinations which began on February 23 will conclude on March 10.
