Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has said the allegations are being scrutinized regarding distribution of the wrong question papers on the first day of the ongoing SSC and equivalent examinations.

The minister made the remarks while visiting an examination centre in Bakshibazar Alia Madrasa in Dhaka on Sunday, reports UNB.

“Strict surveillance has been put in place to stop question paper leaks, and it will continue until the examinations end,” she said.

“Social media platforms are also under close observation to this end,” she added.

Talking to reporters, the newly appointed minister said: “If any candidate needs to exit the exam centre, s/he must leave the question paper in the hall room so that it cannot be spread through the internet.”

Dipu Moni also sought cooperation from the media as well as guardians of the candidates to stop leakage.

On Saturday, this year’s SSC and equivalent examinations commenced with the first paper for Bangla starting at 10am.

However, gross mismanagement reportedly marred the first day of the examinations as candidates at various centres across the country were given wrong question paper sets according to a different syllabus.

This year, a total of 21,35,333 students (10,70,441 males and 10,64,892 females) from 28,682 institutions have registered for the exams.
