The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has successfully prevented cheating during this year’s Class 10 State Secondary Certificate (SSC) exams, which ended today. Unlike last year, where there were reports of paper leaks in some regions, this year’s exams remained free of any such malpractices.

Chairman of the state board, Sharad Gosavi, expressed satisfaction, stating, “The board exams of both SSC and HSC are over now and we are glad that our team was able to prevent and curb the number of cheating cases. We will now be trying to ensure that the results are declared in time and most probably earlier than last year’s result declaration dates.”

Data released by MSBSHSE reveals a total of only 140 cheating cases reported during this year’s SSC exams, a slight increase from last year’s 116 cases. Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar division saw the highest number of cases with 86, while Kolhapur and Konkan divisions remained spotless.

Similarly, during the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exams held from February 21 to March 19, 306 cheating cases were recorded compared to last year’s 345 cases. Gosavi emphasized the board’s commitment to maintaining integrity in examinations, stating, “Cheating cases are rampant in exams held at various places across the state.”

To combat cheating, the state board has intensified its ‘copy-free’ campaign, deploying stricter rules, increasing flying squads, and enhancing surveillance with CCTV cameras at exam centres. Despite challenges, question papers were securely transported to exam centres.
