GUWAHATI, Nov 11 - The Board of Secondary Education Assam (SEBA) has increased the number of centres for the next HSLC examination from 857 to 860.
Initiating some of the reforms as per the reports of the Inspectors of School (IS) from districts, the Board has changed the venue of centres where malpractice was reported in previous the HSLC exams. Three new centres would be introduced in Biswanath, Hailakandi and Goalpara districts for convenience of the candidates appearing in the examination.
�The new centres need to meet the criteria for hosting HSLC examination well ahead of time. The conditions include installation of CCTV camera, secured campus, high boundary walls, etc. The Board reserves the right to withdraw the centre, if compelled by circumstances,� SEBA Controller of Examination Nayanjyoti Sarma told The Assam Tribune.
�Similarly, the venue of two centres in Hailakandi district, where malpractices were reported in previous HSLC examination as per the IS report, has been shifted to other feeder schools,� he added.
The number of evaluation zones has also been increased from 38 to 39 with an additional evaluation zone in Talap Balibazar High School of Tinsukia district. Last year, a zone was started at Jalukbari, but, due to its poor management, the venue has been changed to Mirza Anchalik Girls� High School, the SEBA sources added.
