JSC question-leak scontinues

With JSC question leaks going unabated, many parents have raised the issue of the morality of the country's future generations while some parents are allowing their children to browse the internet to have a glimpse of the leaked questions.

Like the previous exams, questions of mathematics also popped up on different social media apps, and the candidates were seen scrolling the screen of their smart-phones outside exam centers on Sunday instead of last-minute revision of books.

Alarmingly, the questions are now available with open internet sources though, earlier, those were used to be sold via WhatsApp or Messenger. And, the 'free' leaked questions were the same the students got in the exam hall, reports 

Students outside Mirpur Girl's Ideal Laboratory Institute were seen in a hurry to search for questions on the mobile phones. At 9:10am, questions of 'Kha' set arrived on one's phone who immediately started sharing them with his friends.

When asked what measures the authorities are taking to stop the crime, Tapan Kumar Sarker, examinations controller of Dhaka education board, said: "We are taking all the measures needed.""We have informed detective agencies and Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission.

They are also working," he said. Although there is a rule that students must enter the centers half an hour before the exam, many entered Khilgaon Model High School, a center, at 10:20am. One examinee from Government Colony High School, who is taking the exams at the center, said: "This centre allows us to enter by 10:20am." "Half an hour is enough to go through the questions and answers," he went on.

Secretary of this center, Md Aslam Uddin Molla, said: "We allow them to do so on humanitarian grounds. Sometimes, they get late after being stuck in traffic jam." "But if there is any other reason, then the government should look into that," said Molla.

Zinat Farhana, an assistant secretary of Mirpur Girl's Ideal Laboratory Institute center, said: "This is a public exam. Sometimes the children request and we let them in. Many reach late due to traffic jam. So the opportunity is given on humanitarian grounds."
