CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has successfully tested center based printing of encrypted question paper. This test happened at 32 different centers on Monday. This test was run on the compartment exam of class 10th on Monday. In this exam the number of students were near 1000. This will go on till July 25, 2018.
As part of the new policy adopted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the examination centres would receive the compartment exam question papers as well as password just 30 minutes before the exam is scheduled to be conducted. After this the centre superintendent would open the CBSE question papers for compartment examination by using the unique password provided to him/ her. Thereafter, the centre superintendent would print a copy of the question paper and thereafter photocopies of this paper would be taken out and distributed to the students.
No incidents of glitches or delay in the process were reported. According to Anurag Tripathi, “secretary, CBSE, “The first day trial went off smoothly and we will keep a watch for the rest of the period as to how the system functions and what all needs to be fine tuned.”
All computer teachers/staff were supposed to report to the examination centre by 7:30 a.m. on all exam days to handle downloading and printing of the encrypted question papers. “On exam day, the question paper will be available on the CBSE website. The same user ID and password as used for registration can be used. After downloading the zip file of the question paper, the centres have to use the password provided by the regional office minutes before and extract it,” the note read.
