97.5% attempt the MPBSE Class 10 exam in Division

Indore (Madhya Pradesh)

About 97.5% of the students in Indore Division have attempted the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) Grade 10 Examination which ended on Wednesday.

The percentage is quite good considering the low expectations due to the Covid-19 proposals that were in place. The exams for the 10th class took place from February 18 to March 10. Class 12 MPBSE exams are still ongoing.

Although some protocols have been broken around the exam centre, the good news is that no student has been found to be Covid positive at any of the 146 exam centers in Indore.

To control the chances of cheating, the school education department had secret inspection committees known as the Flying Squad that reached out to various schools.

“We have carried out inspections with the schools’ educational teams and tried to ensure fair exams so that students learn discipline and take board exams seriously,” said MPBSE Divisional Officer Deven Sonwani.

A 12th class student attempting the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) exam was caught cheating and reported to the board. The Flying Squad did not find any Class 10 students cheating during exams.
