UP Board to conduct copy-free exams
In order to prevent any form of cheating or exchanging of sheets, the previously used stapled copies have been removed. Thus, this time, UP Board is slated to conduct copy-free exams. Herein, students will get stitched answer sheets, with barcodes and monograms embedded on them. Furthermore, sporadic checks of random answer sheets via the barcodes will ensure that no student is deceiving the system.
