As one of the measures to crack down on rampant cheating, BSEB has banned socks and shoes during board examination.

BSEB board examinations for class 10 students have begun on February 17. Shockingly, thousands of Bihar Board class 10 students turned up at the examination centres in chappals. The board is taking all the strict measures to avoid cheating or conduction of examinations via false means. As one of the measures to crack down on rampant cheating, BSEB has banned socks and shoes during board examination. According to the Bihar government orders, students are not allowed to appear in the board examination wearing shoes or socks. Students who arrive wearing shoes and socks have to take them off before going inside to appear for the examination.

Not just class 10 but the same rule is applicable to BSEB class 12 students as well. The intermediate examination began on February 3. The Board has been working a lot to take extreme measures to curb cheating in Bihar. Earlier, the Board released a list of important instruction for the students who enrolled themselves for the BSEB examination. From banning mobile phones for both students and invigilators to setting up a two-level frisking facility (One, before entering the examination centre and second before entering the examination hall), the Board has done this all to fight cheating cases and examination misconducts.

However, banning shoes and socks is not something new in Bihar board exams. The ban was implemented last year and over 17 lakh students appeared for the Bihar Board class 10 exams in chappals across the 1425 exam centres in the state.

Considering the number of news reports on cheating, mass cheating is a common occurrence in Bihar. Last year, around 1000 students were caught cheating and penalised during BSEB Class 12 examinations.
