Hit by "multiple-scams" over the past few years, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) is taking extra care in preparing the Class X and XII Board exam results, which are likely to be declared around mid-May.

For the last three years, the Board has been left embarrassed due to mass-cheating and topper scams. In 2017, the Intermediate Arts topper Ganesh Kumar had fudged his name and age, while in 2016, undeserving students including Ruby Rai had made it to the merit list. In 2015, photographs of mass-cheating in Bihar's Vaishali district had hit global headlines.

"The evaluation process is almost complete and the results are being processed. A number of technologies have been used to plug all loopholes and we are positive that this year's result will improve our image," a senior official of the Board told DNA.

Sources in the BSEB said, the Board is likely to conduct a physical verification of all students, who make it to the merit list, to avoid any more "topper" fiasco. In 2017, it had conducted a physical check of Class X rank holders after Intermediate topper Ganesh was found to be of "42 years instead of 24" as claimed by him.

The BSEB has already introduced a number of reforms in the examination and evaluation process in its bid to streamline the system.

This year, the Class XII exams of the BSEB were taken by over 12.07 lakh examinee while more than 17.70 lakh students wrote its Class X exams. While the Intermediate exams were marred with "paper leak scares", following which the Board had directed the respective district administrations to take strict action against the rumour-mongers, it had also barred students from wearing shoes and socks in the Matriculation exams, in a bid to prevent use of unfair means in the examination.

In the run up to the publication of results, the Board has cautioned students not to fall for any type of "traps or phone calls" from people promising to increase their marks or threatening to fail them.
