After the Class 10 Mathematics test paper was leaked, the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Faisalabad has come under fire.
The incident has brought up important questions about the fairness and transparency of the board’s examination procedure.
A few hours prior to the exam’s scheduled start time, the question paper was allegedly posted online. Due to the paper’s widespread sharing on social media platforms, students were able to access the compromised questions.
The event brings to light the absence of security measures in testing facilities and the manipulation-proneness of the testing procedure.
The leak did not get stopped despite the presence of invigilators and board monitors, who are in charge of making sure the exam’s integrity. This has sparked doubts about the monitoring system’s efficacy and the capacity of the authorities to stop such irregularities.
Many people now doubt the veracity of the forthcoming findings in light of the paper leak. The leak casts doubt on the board’s ability to represent the interests of the pupils while also undermining their hard work.
In Pakistan, paper breaches are not a recent occurrence. Authorities have failed to stop these events over time, which has caused a loss of trust in the examination process.
