The authorities are preparing to suspend internet services in regions around some schools during the examinations, but nothing has been finalised yet. The final decision will be taken by the local establishments. Last year, claimed photos of Bengali, English, Mathematics and Life Science question papers were circulated on WhatsApp right after the commencement of exams, but the board and the government had informed that those questions did not match with the original text.
