CCTV Cameras installed at All Centers

CCTV cameras will be installed at all the centers and there will be videography of the entire center. One videographer will be deployed for every 500 candidates. Identity cards will be issued to all supervisors, officers, and employees. Invigilators have been asked to report at their designated center a day before the commencement of the examination.

If the admit card of a candidate is lost, he/she may be allowed to take the examination after establishing identity from the scanned photograph on the attendance sheet and verification from the roll sheet.
BSEB will distribute pre-printed answer sheets and OMR sheets containing photographs of the candidate. Examinees will get 100% additional options in both objective and subjective questions. Answer sheets and OMR sheets will be handed over to the candidates together, but OMR sheets will be collected earlier at the scheduled time. There will be 10 sets of question papers (A to J) in each subject, BSEB Chairman said.

There will be four model examination centers in each district where all examiners, invigilators, police, magistrates, and other support staff will be women only.
