West Bengal board is also looking to check misconduct. 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. From this year, the teachers will not be permitted to take smartwatches inside the examination centres.
From smartwatches to mobile phones, no electronic gadget will be permitted inside the centres either by teachers or students. All this has been done to avert any mismanagement during the exams.
