UP Board Exams 2023: UPMSP issues guidelines to prevent cheating

Uttar Pradesh’s Board of Secondary Education has issued a list of guidelines, which include barring invigilators from using mobiles, calculators or any other e-devices, to ensure there is no cheating in the state board exams next month.

Fifty per cent of the invigilators at the examination centres will be external and a teacher of the subject for which an exam is being held will not be put on duty, according to the statement by the Uttar Pradesh government issued on Saturday. These follow directives of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for a copying-free board exam.

No teacher shall be appointed at a particular examination centre on his/her request for vested interest, the statement said.
