The ongoing examination for final year students of Bachelor Degree, conducted by the Utkal University, has been marred by widespread cheating and unethical assistance by some teachers in many examination centres of Jajpur district. The examination of the students reading in colleges affiliated to the university began from Thursday.

According to sources, the teachers on invigilation duty have been found to be dictating the answers of almost all questions to the examinees during the examinations.

This unethical practice is so tactfully followed by the invigilators that even the flying squads are unable to dictate mass copying during their surprise visit to the examination centres.

Due to unholy nexus between the teachers and students, the latter do not have to keep any incrementing materials with them during the examination. Since the teachers dictate the answers, the candidates can easily cheat away from the prying eyes. The flying squad also finds no incrementing materials from the examinees if they check them in the examination halls.

“There has been an unwritten agreement between us and the colleges that the teachers would help us during the examination. That’s why we are opting for private colleges especially in rural areas for admission paying more for the purpose,” said an examinee on condition of anonymity.

The unethical practice is mostly found in the private colleges.

“Some teachers have been found helping the students in some private colleges. The invigilators found involved in such acts should be punished and the authority should cancel the examination centres to ensure quality education,” said Rabindra Kumar Mohapatra, an educationist.
