Banning the use of mobile phone in a radius of 200 metres around the examination centre to prevent the leakage of question papers in the ongoing SSC and equivalent examinations, the government has ordered immediate arrest if anyone is found with a cellphone.
The Higher and Secondary Division of Education Ministry issued a couple of directives upon the authorities concerned on Monday in this regard.
As per the directives, legal action, including arrest, must be taken if anyone is found with mobile phones in and around a 200-metre radius of the examination centre.
It will have to be ensured that examinees enter the centres and take their seats 30 minutes before the start of the test. “No candidate will be allowed after that time.”
On Sunday, the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission instructed all the internet gateway operators to slash the internet limit as well as mobile phone operators to suspend the internet from 8 am to 10:30 am on the exam days.
However, on Monday, the authorities withdrew the decision and asked the operators to keep the service uninterrupted.
The SCC (Secondary School Certificate) question papers have been leaking out from the very first day of the examination. The question papers are being found on social media sites and mobile phone before the start of the examinations.
