Maharashtra State Board Exams 2022: Rigorous Measures Implemented for a Cheating-Free and Fair Examination

In the upcoming “Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education examinations,” approximately 15 lakh Class 12 students and 16 lakh Class 10 students, totaling 31 lakh examinees, are gearing up to take their exams. The state board, in a proactive move to ensure a secure examination process, has implemented substantial measures to prevent cheating and malpractices.

Scheduled to commence on February 21 for Class 12 and March 1 for Class 10, the state board has already distributed hall tickets to all eligible students. Recognizing the historical challenges of cheating, impersonation, and leaked papers on social media, the board assures that strict measures are in place this year to prevent such malpractices.

As part of the anti-cheating initiative, the state board has launched a copy-free campaign, offering an additional 10 minutes to students during exams. The exams will be conducted at 3,320 centers for Class 12 and 5,086 centers for Class 10 across the state. Notably, the number of science stream students in Class 12 equals the combined count of arts and commerce students, with a significant portion of Class 12 examinees hailing from Pune and Mumbai regions.

This year, practical exams will undergo online marking, and custodians transporting question papers are required to activate GPS on their devices while recording a video during paper collection. The flying squad, responsible for monitoring exams, has undergone changes, with members receiving new ID cards and senior teachers joining the squad to ensure a patient and supportive approach toward students.

Sharad Gosavi, chairman of the state board, emphasized that officials have been thoroughly briefed through video conferencing, and all necessary measures are in place to conduct exams smoothly. Students are encouraged to approach the exams stress-free, as the board remains
