The intermediate examinations conducted by Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) have again hit headlines after solved question paper of the Chemistry exam for Class 12 went viral. The solved question paper was available on mobile at many examination centres.
Confirming the incident, district magistrate of Nalanda, Doctor Tyagranjan S M, said that the leaked question paper was matched with the original and it did not match. The viral question paper is wrong. We are keeping an eye on wrong-doers and strict action will take against them.
To ensure cheating free examination, Bihar board has changed the pattern but it has not proved helpful much. This is the third paper which has gone viral. Earlier, it was Biology, Physics and then Chemistry papers.
