Though the most expected papers- Maths and Science held smoothly without any mishappen just like the last year. Last year Economics paper of class 12th held twice and the Maths question paper of class 10th leaked. This not only affects the students but also CBSE to some extent.

For the academic year, 2018-19 CBSE has taken the various measures to make sure that there will be no Paper Leak.

Thus, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with the new technologies and measures to remove the word cheating from the examination process.
This year not only different sets provided but also each set had a few different questions. As per informed by CBSE officials that some papers had more than 3 sets, as well as some papers, had more than 30% new questions. This really increases the authenticity of the examination process.
Not only this, question papers are provided with the QR codes in order to track the leak of paper. Along with this encrypted papers were kept as a backup in case of an emergency. CBSE also kept a record of exam centre superintendents responsible for carrying the question papers at the centre. To track each and every moment inside the examination hall that when and which set opened exam centre superintendents were instructed to watsapp the images to monitor system.
In the end, late entry inside the examination was also not allowed. The students required to enter inside the examination until 10:00 am. At 10:15 the question paper get distributed among the students.
For making the students as well as teachers and parents aware CBSE has started the campaign over a paper leak.
