In a video recorded, students, who appeared for Uttar Pradesh Secondary Sanskrit Education Counsel Exam, were seen copying from each other while some were found writing answers with books opened.
Few students went outside their examination hall and exchanged notes. Not only this, some people were seen giving papers in the name of other candidates. Surprisingly, no invigilator or examiners was seen in the classroom when the said incident occurred.
Many students were sitting together on the same bench. Students started throwing books as soon as they noticed the camera but some still continued to cheat. The video of mass cheating has gone viral. This has also raised questions over the education system of the state.
To tackle cheating in the examinations, state government made all possible arrangements like installation of CCTV cameras at all examination centres. In Uttar Pradesh, Bihar such impudent practice at the examinations have always hit the headlines. Every year students have been seen cheating.
