Prayagraj (UP), Jan 22:  The Uttar Pradesh Board that conducts the high school and intermediate examinations, has decided to introduce computerised identity cards bearing unique QR codes and serial numbers for the invigilators this time.

This is an attempt to conduct the high school and intermediate exams in a fair manner.

Around 2.75 lakh exam room invigilators, who would be on duty this year would get these identity cards, said officials.

UP Board secretary Divyakant Shukla said: “The QR code and the serial number on the identity card would ensure their uniqueness and prevent any replication as well as thwart any effort of impersonation by anyone trying to undermine the exams.”

As per the set norms, the district inspector of schools (DIOSs) of the respective district would download these identity cards from the official portal of the board a week before the formal start of the exams and would hand them over to the invigilators concerned.

These I-cards would also display the teaching subject of the invigilator concerned allowing their substitution by other teachers with expertise in subjects other than the one of which the exam is being held on the day. This would negate any change of an invigilator trying to aid an examinee cheat, officials said.

Like in previous years, the DIoS concerned would assign duties to teachers, principals and other personnel for invigilating rooms in exam centres.

The Board will conduct its Class 10 and 12 exams at 8,264 centres spread across the 75 districts of the state between February 22 and March 9.

UP Board released the examination schedule on December 7, 2023 making plain that the exams would last a total of 17 days (12 working days).

Around 55,08,206 students are registered to appear for the U.P. Board high school and intermediate exams. They include 29,47,324 high school students (15,71,686 boys and 13,75,638 girls) and another 25,60,882 intermediate students (14.12 lakh boys and 11.48 lakh girls).
