Immediate expulsion for teachers, students found with phones during SSC exams
Although use of mobile phones in examination hall by teachers and examinees has already been banned, the government has now decided that anyone – both teachers and students – in possession of a phone will be expelled immediately during the upcoming Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations. The Ministry of Education has also decided to impose a ban on using mobile phone by the other duty officials and staff of the exam centre. No smartphones will be allowed inside any centre and only the secretary of the exam centre will be allowed to use a regular mobile phone without camera. The decisions were taken on Monday at a meeting of the National Monitoring Committee, chaired by Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid, to hold the SSC exams smoothly in a cheating-free environment, said a circular issued by the ministry. The meeting also asked the coaching centres around the country to close shop three days before the exams begin and remain closed until they end. It also took some decisions to prevent question paper leak, spreading rumour over leak and take action against those who circulate questions through social media platforms. The SSC exams are scheduled to begin from February 1. As per the decision of Monday's meeting, the examinees will have to enter their respective exam halls at least 30 minutes before the exams begin, no excuse will be accepted in this regard, said the minister. Besides, the meeting also discussed shutting down internet services and social networking platforms during the exam. But no final decision was taken. The education minister said at the meeting that all government departments and agencies concerned would be working together to prevent any fraud and irregularities. “If any teacher or staff is found involved in illegal activities, punitive actions will be taken immediately.” Parts of this article were first published on Bangla Tribune
