HYDERABAD: The state government’s elaborate arrangements to check use of unfair means in Inter examinations seemed to have paid off well as no student has been booked for malpractice on the first day of the  Intermediate public examination. Also, there were no cases of students being denied entry for coming late.

According to the BIE, a total of 4,56,148 candidates appeared for the exams while 26,518 abstained in the second language paper. The percentage of attendance was about 94.51 pc.

“The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education has sent observers to Nalgonda, Mahbubnagar, Hyderabad & Ranga Reddy districts. The exams were conducted peacefully without any untoward incident,’’ Dr A Ashok, secretary of BIE said. 

Interm.JPGSusheel Kumar, controller of examination, said “The one minute late rule, which everyone is taking about is not a new rule, but is being implemented from 2013. Today, no student has been stopped for being a minute late. Only those coming after 20 minutes have been stopped from entering  the venue, that too we had only one such case at a college in Nampally.” A total of 1,275 examinations centres have been set up across the state for the exams.

In order to curb malpractice, 50 flying squads and 200 sitting squads were formed. Also, the secretary made it clear that any student caught in malpractice would be barred from the exam and legal action would be initiated. Apart from this, measures were taken to close  photocopy shops near exam centers and signal jammers were deployed.
