Lahore tops exam cheating charts

LAHORE, 28 April(Daily Times): As many as 119 cheating cases and 16 impersonation cases were registered by the eight examination boards of the province during the recently held Secondary School Certificate (Matriculation) Annual Examination 2007.

An Education Department (ED) official said that a report prepared by the department's special monitoring cell revealed that the highest number of cases of candidates using unfair means were registered by the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISE) Lahore. The Lahore board detected 61 such cases during the matriculation examination administered at various examination centers set up across the city. The board had also registered five cases of impersonation, he added.

According to the report, the ED official said BISE Multan registered 12 cases of candidates using unfair means during the examination, the Faisalabad board registered 11, Gujranwala 10, Bahawalpur 9, Dera Ghazi Khan 8, Rawalpindi 5 and Sargodha 3.

The ED official said that the Lahore and Faisalabad boards detected the highest number of impersonation incidents, with each board registering five cases. The Multan and Rawalpindi boards registered two cases of impersonation, while the Dera Ghazi Khan and Gujranwala boards registered one case each. The Bhawalpur and Sargodha Boards reported no cases of impersonation.

ED special monitoring cell convenor Muhammad Akram Chaudhary said 68 cases of impersonation and cheating were registered during last year's matriculation exam. This figure had almost doubled in this year's exam, jumping to 135 cases. Akram attributed the rise in statistics to an improved vigilance and monitoring system. He said special measures were taken by the department to catch cheaters this year. He added that not a single case of disruption, violence or rowdiness was registered in Punjab during this year's exam.

The ED official said that this year BISE set up 2,538 centers in the province, administering the matriculation exam to 816,513 candidates.
