The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will be issuing an ‘instruction module’ to all schools to deter students from cheating, a senior Board official said on Friday.

The module was being worked on for quite some time and it has reached its final form on Friday, the official told IANS.

“Cheating is an individual malpractice. This year we are doing something special to bring down the instances of cheating. We will be issuing a module to the schools by next week. It talks about why cheating is unethical and immoral. It will have case studies to that effect,” the official said requesting anonymity.

According to media reports, the number of cases of cheating during CBSE exams doubled in 2017 from the previous year, rising from 56 in 2016 to 119 in 2017. The official said the number is around a similar figure in 2018 also.

The official also assured of leak-proof exams this year.

CBSE’s reputation of being a formidable examiner was delivered a blow in 2018 when question papers of Mathematics and Economics for Class 10 and 12 respectively were leaked to the students before the exams. The fiasco resulted in re-conducting of the Economics paper for Class 12 students.

“I cannot reveal the security mechanism we have brought in. But we have put in place a system which will help us identify any malpractice if it takes place. The system has been strengthened at all levels,” said the official.

The official also debunked reports that the board is conducting exams early this year due to general election, saying its “completely wrong” and that early exams have nothing to do with the elections.

“We are conducting exams a little early this year at the instruction of the Delhi High Court, which had said that the schools results should not coincide in anyway with the Delhi University admission. To that effect, the results this year will be announced early in May,” the official said.  (IANS)

Amazons Prime Student deal gave new users £5 off their first purchase with a code called ‘Welcome5’ but students quickly got on to the fact that it could be reused multiple times.

Soon, the word spread like wildfire across the UK’s campuses and students began stock-piling up products as toilet rolls and toothpaste – as well as packs of beer, The Sun reported.

“We started looking for useful stuff that was a fiver or under and discovered there was loads that we could get that would be really handy – and also some pretty rubbish things we got just for the hell of it. ‘We’ll never need to buy toiletries, cheap novels, highlighter pens, folders or batteries again during our whole university career and well beyond,” a 19-year-old student in Newcastle told The Sun.

The student said the deal was like an addictive game as they were trying to get things whatever they could find for £5.

Additionally, Ryan, a student in Nottingham, said he saved £164 on 36 items, including food, stationary and more.

“One of my flatmates used the discount to buy sex toys for his girlfriend. I hope they bring it back next year,” Ryan added.
