Exam Logistics: Numbers and Navigations

A staggering 1,55,028 students are set to engage in this academic rite across 676 designated centers. This examination season extends till March 26, offering examinees an additional 10 minutes post-exam to review their answer sheets. Chintaman Wanjari, Nagpur Divisional Board Chairman, delineates specific arrival times based on examination sessions to maintain order.

Vigilance Against Malpractice: A Zero-Tolerance Stance

In the quest for a fair and transparent examination process, the Education Department has empowered District Collectors to ensure an error-free and copy-free environment. A stern warning reverberates – any instance of mass copying or unfair means will result in stringent action against the responsible parties, be it Center Heads, Head Masters, or teachers.

Guardians of Integrity: District Collectors Take the Helm

Under the leadership of Dr. Vipin Itankar, District Collector, a proactive approach is adopted to curb malpractice. Surprise visits by District Collectors and the Chief Executive Officer are on the horizon, supplemented by anticipated inspections from Board members and government officials. Proximity restrictions on Xerox centers aim to thwart any nefarious attempts at question paper circulation.

Mental Health Support: A Compassionate Touch

However, it’s emphasized that inquiries regarding examination logistics should be directed to official channels rather than the counsellors.
