A total of 262 examination centres have been set up for a total of 62,661 regular and 7,195 private candidates. The administration has also deployed 13 flying squads besides the regular squads to check irregularities.

“Not only CCTV cameras, one sitting squad will also be deployed in each sensitive examination centre this time. In view of the past experiences where incidents of mass copying have been reported, especially from sensitive areas, the 28 centres identified as sensitive will be covered with special vigilance. Section 144 will be imposed in and around the centres during the exams. The RTC has also agreed to run examination specials, particularly in the rural and Agency areas,” said district educational officer MV Krishna Reddy.

A strongroom has also been set up in Queen Mary High School in One Town area to keep question papers. At the district level a co-ordination team has been set up with Police, EPDCL, Postal Services, Medical and Health departments to make arrangements at the exam centres.

Spot valuation will be held from April 15 to 28 at the Queen Mary High School and results are expected to be announced in the first week of May.
