BENGALURU: With the aim of conducting error-free examination and to avoid incidents like question paper leaks, like it happened during March/April 2016 examinations, the Department of Pre-university Education has decided to delay the preparation process.

The high-power committee constituted by the government, headed by the Senior IAS officer TM Vijay Bhaskar, had its first meeting on Friday and discussed various issues.

Speaking to Express a source in the committee said, “We have discussed several issues starting from question paper setting to printing. As it was the first meeting, no concrete decision was taken.”

The source also said that the committee will submit its report in a while after another round of meeting.
Meanwhile, in the meeting, it was discussed to look at the examination system of other institutions and universities. “Appointment of a team of experts to oversee question paper setting to avoid any kind of malpractice at that stage was also discussed,” said the official.

Normally the paper setting work begins by second week of November but this year, the process will be delayed, the source said.
