BHUBANESWAR: The Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) has finalised 1,106 centres for Plus Two examinations this year. The number of centres stood at 1,091 last year.

Heavy security measures will be put in place for question papers as well as answer sheets after completion of the examinations. While the number of examination management hubs (EMH) is 202 this time, the Government has decided to form a five-tier squad system to check malpractice during the Plus Two tests.

Apart from squads at each examination centre, the Government will form teams at district, zonal and CHSE levels to conduct raids and ensure smooth conduct of the examinations. 

According to CHSE reports, the Department of Higher Education (DHE) will also form another squad to make surprise visits to the examination centres. 

For each district, 30 flying squads will be formed and each squad will be managed by the District Level Consultant (DLC) assigned by the DHE. The State has been divided into three zones - southern zone (Berhampur), northern zone (Baripada) and western zone (Sambalpur) and a Deputy Secretary has been assigned by the Council for each zone. Each squad will cover minimum two colleges everyday.

On the day, School and Mass Education Minister Debi Prasad Mishra held a video conferencing with all district Collectors for smooth conduct of Plus Two tests.

This year, at least 3,80,707 students will appear for the examinations in all the four streams of Arts, Science, Commerce and Vocational. Of them, 90,990 would appear for Science test, 2,43,106 Arts and 28,481 Commerce. This apart, 8,573 Vocational students, 1,007 compartmental and 8,550 correspondence students will take the tests.

On the other hand, the DHE is yet to open bidding for e-evaluation of Science and Commerce papers. The agency in charge of e-evaluation will be responsible for scanning and digitising answer booklets each comprising 32 pages each of Science and Commerce papers.

While the practical examinations for Plus Two are already over, the theory examinations will begin on March 6 and continue till March 28. 

CHSE sources said the question papers will be sent to examination hubs in a phase-wise manner from February 25 to March 3. This year, 28 evaluation hubs will be set up for digital correction of answer sheets and 50 hubs for manual correction of Arts papers.
