GUWAHATI, Feb 18 � The All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) has called upon the State government to scrap the rule under which HSLC candidates will have to write their names in the answer sheets.
�We want to request your honour to abolish the defective system of writing name in various exams and interviews including SEBA...,� stated a memorandum by AIUDF to the State Education Minister.
The party said, �It is has come to our notice that SEBA is going to introduce examiner�s name on answer sheet from this year, which system was not in practice earlier. It is a matter of doubt and there is apprehension of biasness.�
The memorandum said that such a practice may lead to bias and put a question mark on the fairness of results.
It said that such a practice is not prevalent in any all-India level examination or in exams conducted in other states.
�It creates disturbance among the examinees of various caste and creed. It is well known that the government of Assam introduced the system of writing name on the answer sheet of TET (Teacher Eligibility Test) examination. It was a matter of great objection,� stated the memorandum.
