Cheating culture

Despite tall claims by the authorities, cheating during the ongoing SSC exams remain unabated. Some exam centres that have proper controls do not allow children to bring any sort of material, except for stationery, inside examination halls. On the other hand, some centres do not check whether a student is carrying additional material or not. At such centres, students are allowed to cheat from notes and books. Since I have also taken the SSC exams conducted by the Karachi Board, I can tell through my experience that the main reason behind widespread cheating culture is the shady role of invigilators.

Many students have been a victim of this gross injustice. Students who spend the entire year in preparing for examinations feel dejected when they see less hardworking students openly cheating and writing correct answers in their answer books. What examiners receive is the finally copy that centres sent to them. They don’t know how much effort and hard work a student has put throughout the year. Therefore, many students who have never been serious towards studies and who have always performed low in class manage to obtain good marks in their final exams. On the other hand, students who studied throughout the year suffer from this gross injustice. The higher authorities should take remedial steps to put an end to cheating culture.
