Cases of cheating and paper leak are now very frequent in all states in India. Recently there have been case where the SEBA Assam Class 10th English paper was leaked and then in another case, the UP Board cancelled Class 10th science paper due to the paper leak cases. The list of these paper leak stories are several. WBBSE has also been on this road before.
Last year, there were cases of paper leak in WBBSE. Keeping in mind the faults of previous year, WBBSE has taken stringent measures to avoid cheating and paper leak. The question paper packets have been fitted with a microchip, which send an alert to its server as soon as the seal is broken. The chips are GPS-enabled and if the seal is broken, the data will be passed on to the server at the control room at the board’s office.
Since the exams have already started, you should manage your time well in the exam. This means that you should not spend too much time in answering a single question. If a question is too time consuming and your are not sure of it, skip that question and attempt those which you are confident of. Attend the leftover questions towards the end. Result of West Bengal Madhyamik 2018 exams will be announced in May.
Since you don’t have many gaps in between to revise, do not start any new topic. Revise the topics which you have already done. Maintain a positive frame of mind as it not only boosts up your morale and also helps you answer questions in the best possible way.
Most importantly, don’t compare answers, after your paper is over. This is so because in case if you will find that your answer mismatch with that of your friend, it may demoralize you and may make you anxious. This will only affect your next exam’s preparation. So avoid doing this.
