Government dismisses news of Assam Board 10th Geography paper going viral
SEBA HSLC Exam 2023 Paper Leak Information: The Assam government dismissed reports of another paper leak on Saturday, claiming that “the entire atmosphere is being vitiated” after pictures of a Geography question paper reportedly went viral on social media. Attempts are being made in this direction. Two cases of question paper leaks in class 10 examinations held by the Secondary Education Board of Assam (SEBA) came to light earlier this week, resulting in the cancellation of both exams. In such a case, the first page of the Geography question paper reportedly began to circulate on social media, particularly WhatsApp, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, causing panic among the examinees.
Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma and Education Minister Ranoj Pegu were quick to dismiss the alleged leak of the Geography question paper, saying it was an effort to “vitiate the whole atmosphere”. The geography test is scheduled for Monday. Pegu alleged that the 2021 Geography question paper was edited and shared on social media, causing confusion among the examinees, despite the fact that the exams were not held in 2021 due to Kovid-19. The Chief Minister stated that it appears that some individuals are attempting to taint the entire atmosphere by fraudulently leaking the examination question papers. Previously, the General Science exam, which was planned for last Monday, was canceled the night before, and the Modern Indian Language (MIL) and English papers, which were scheduled for Saturday, were canceled on Thursday night. The first canceled exam will now be conducted on March 30, and the second on April 1.
