The Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) monitoring squads captured twenty-three pupils using improper techniques to solve their examinations on Thursday.
The students were sitting for their Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Annual Exams 2021.
On the first day of the SSC Part-I exams, the mathematics question paper was purportedly released on social media and rapidly distributed on WhatsApp groups, causing controversy.
According to the information provided, Science group students were taking their mathematics exam in the morning shift. However, the question paper was widely distributed on social media shortly after the exam began. Board officials, on the other hand, reject all such reports.
In the second shift, regular and private students from the general group took civics, physiology and hygiene, history, food and nutrition, and computer studies exams. However, there were no complaints of leaked questions.
According to a press statement issued by the board, all of the papers began and concluded on schedule. Prof Syed Sharaf Ali Shah, Chairman of the BSEK, visited several test centers and found everything to be in order. He emphasized the abolition of the exam cheating culture.
