It is a common practice in Uttar Pradesh that the examinees try to trace the examiners which are checking copies of their college or the external examiners who are going to visit their college for evaluation of practical exams or viva-voce exams. Then, they try to offer them bribes or use ‘sources’ to coerce them to give more number to the students. As a result, students with very low marks in theoretical exams manage to get high marks in practical exams and their overall marks in the subject increase.

- Colleges will receive details of practical examinations on the exam date itself.
- Students will not have to write their names or roll numbers on the answer sheets. They will receive a sealed envelope carrying a secret code, and a photo ID. Students will have to write the assigned code on the answer sheet and wear the photo ID card on their shirts.
- Colleges will have to keep documents of students who get more than 80% safe so that they can be reviewed later.
Now, the examiners will have no way to know copies they are checking belong to which college and will not come to know where they will go for evaluation beforehand. HC has also ordered that students will not reveal his identity to the examiner. If he is found to be doing so, actions will be taken against him.
