GTU Question Paper Send Via CDs In Colleges !!!

The Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has pulled up its socks to provide direct access of question papers to respective exam centres. GTU has learnt a lesson from the recent episode wherein an observer appointed by the varsity, Ankit Mehta leaked exam questions to some students and another teacher. The varsity officials are gearing up to develop a central system to give permission to print exam papers directly at the centres, prior to the day’s exam.

In an attempt to check the leak of question papers, the Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has decided to send the questions in Compact Discs (CDs) to its engineering and pharmaceutical colleges for the next semester examinations. The CDs will be locked with three layers of password.

The method, which will be a first of its kind in Gujarat, will be used during the examination of first-year beginning December 15. This system has already been followed in a few technical universities of the country for the last six years.
There are nearly 200 colleges affiliated with the GTU in the state, having around 55,000 students in the first year. Almost all the colleges have welcomed the move.

The principals will be sent the passwords through e-mails 30 minutes ahead of the examination, Bhupatani said. He added, “We will also appoint a person for every college who will reach the examination centre with an extra CD as backup”.

A senior official from the State Education Department said that in the past, in spite of several security measures, incidents of question paper leak have been reported. “Earlier, we used to remain worried as to whether the question papers would reach the centres on time or not. The possibility of tampering with the question papers during transportation will also not be there anymore,” the official said.
