Kolkata: The exam bell is ringing for the Madhyamik Examinees as the Madhyamik examinations begin on March 12. Nearly 11 lakh students will write the examinations this year.
The state government has drawn up a list of trouble-prone schools in each district. The government on Friday directed the district magistrates (DM) and superintendents of police (SP) to tighten security arrangements at all vulnerable centres to prevent cheating and other untoward incidents during the exams.
“There are several centres where students tend to create trouble when they are not allowed to cheat. There are several other venues where outsiders disrupt the exam when they are not allowed to enter. Video vigil is being intensified to identify and book troublemakers,” said a source in the school education department.
All DMs and SPs would have the lists of vulnerable centres of their own districts.Policemen will be deployed in front of all centres to prevent outsiders from approaching the venues and any offenders will be booked for trespassing.
