Installing CCTV cameras in examination halls seems catching the fancy of our educators. After a few education institutes, now it’s Dibrugarh Uniuversity’s turn to install CCTV cameras in their examination halls. The objective is to keep a strict vigil on the students in examination halls.
A university official said, “The examination will be held in Guwahati, Silchar, Nalbari, Lakhimpur, Tezpur, Nagaon, Jorhat, Dibrugarh and Bongaigaon in 27 venues and for the first time, CCTV has been installed in the exam centers”. The university has taken such step for the first time to check cheating and unfair means during examination.
The official further added, “Besides, a video recording would also be done, which would be monitored constantly. This is basically to stop students from resorting to unfair means during examinations. There have been instances of cheating in earlier examinations. Such instances leave a bad impression on the student’s mind and also question the credibility of the exam. So, we will not allow any kind of gadget in the hall this time”.
Students were earlier allowed to carry their mobile phones with them in the examination halls, but now students will not be allowed to carry any kind of electronic gadget in the halls and strict action will be taken against anyone who carries gadgets with them.
While new measures are being adopted by the authorities to conduct CEE, there is a possibility that from next session onwards, it will be replaced with National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), which would be conducted by the CBSE board.
