ALLAHABAD: The UP Board has miserably failed to check cheating menace in ongoing class X and XII exams. Unable to cope up with the criticism, the board has shut down the control room set up at head quarters to provide details of students caught using unfair means. The control room functioned merely for four days.

As cases of cheating continued to abound, the board decided to lock up to avoid any further criticism over high numbers of cheaters. UP Board secretary, Amarnath Verma, however, said, The divisional level data of day concerned can be obtained from the additional secretary office while that of the district can be obtained from the district inspector of school. However he

failed to give any answer as to why the system was changed.

I do not think there has been an unexpected rise in case of copycats. Everything is under control, he added. The first five days of the board exams have witnessed recommendations for cancellation of over 150 centres.

and punitive action against equal number of invigilators. Unlike the past years, the number of copycats being caught during exams of even less important subjects too is on the rise. Sources said that around 700 to 900 students were caught daily during exams of important subjects like physics, mathematics, history and social science.
