Question Leak

Intel Report on Primary Exams Questions

No doubt about leak

It is beyond any doubt that question papers of the recently held primary terminal examinations were leaked, says an intelligence agency report, proving wrong the government's claim that news reports on the leaks were "baseless" . The prime minister's office sent the report to the home ministry on January 11. The PMO also asked the ministry about what punitive measures would be taken against the people involved in the leak. The report says dozens of coaching centres in Tangail district and...

Fighting the menace of question-leaking

Fighting the menace of question-leaking

IN the not-so-distant past, the main concern of authorities conducting public examinations was the practice of adopting unfair means by a dishonest examinee who copied either from another student's answer script or from pages of a book, or from crib sheets that he/she carried secretly into the examination hall.  The challenge before the...


Probing HSC question leakage

THE probe body formed to find out the causes and the culprits behind HSC question paper leakage this year has come up with, among others, a curious suggestion to stop question leakage. It is that future public examinations be held without any time gap between them. Oddly enough, the probe committee has not been able to shed any light on how the question paper leakage could take place, or who might have been behind the crime.  Evidently, the probe...

Weird solution to question leak

The government considers holding public exams without any gap excepting public holidays in efforts to check question paper leaks. The committee formed by the education ministry to investigate the question paper leaks during this year's Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations suggested changing the system of holding public exams over a long period with significant gaps between two exams. The education boards should plan two exams a day or at least one without any interval excepting public holidays, it said in a...

Question leakage: Genesis of the problem

THE most recent incident of leakage of HSC question papers after a series of such scandals in the last SSC examinations has stunned the whole nation. The attempt of the education boards to hold both the SSC and HSC examinations peacefully after success in arresting unfair means got a severe jolt. This shows that the process, from setting of the questions up to distributing them, lacked proper planning, security measures, efficient handling and foolproof and honest endeavour. The boys and...


Question leakage is a shame

EDUCATION is clearly in a bad state in the country. With reports of questions for the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations being leaked and even appearing on Facebook, it is quite natural to conclude that somewhere along the line the authorities may have lost control over the entire examination process. In the recent past, there have been patent instances of question papers for examinations to the Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) being out in the...


Facebook used for leaking question

A face book page named 'HSC exam 2014' was found to have disclosed at least 18 of 22 questions of HSC's maths first part exam that was held on Sunday. Audaciously, the profile picture of the page had the title "Prashnopotro Fash" (question paper leaked). Responding to the incident, the board authority is reported to have refuted the claims, but then the question is how they could have ignored an obvious reality! Since the very beginning of HSC exams, we...
