Bihar Board directs students to wear flip-flops ahead of class 10 examinations”

In a bid to prevent cheating, Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has barred students from entering exam halls with shoes and socks. It is a usual practice in other examinations held in the state. "Now a similar advisory has been issued which will be implemented from this year's matriculation examination", BSEB Chairman Anand Kishor told reporters on Sunday.

Giving an explanation for the decision, a BSEB official told Indian Express, "Though all examination centres have CCTVs installed since last year's examination, the state board did not want to take any chance". Students of Bihar were asked not to wear shoes to the examination hall.

"The Board has taken a right decision".

The board, sources said, will create awareness on the new rules and issue directives to all district magistrates (DMs) and centre superintendents.

The Board has also made a decision to depute one invigilator for every 25 students and the examination will be video recorded. A recent ANI report stated that 985 students had been expelled during the intermediate exams coducted by the BSEB previous year. Candidates can either wear slippers or flip-flop in the examination.

All these measures were introduced at the Intermediate examination, but 985 students were still expelled for use of unfair means.

A total of 25 people were caught writing the exam on behalf of another candidate.

The board had also taken action against three invigilators for negligence of duty.

A year ago too, shoes and socks were not allowed for the students at the exam centres.

As per reports, almost 17.70 lakh students will appear for the class 10 board exams at 1,426 centres across the state from February 21 to 28.
