The Board of Intermediary and Secondary Education, Faisalabad has imposed a ban on giving extra sheets to the students during examinations.
According to the new rule, Matric students will receive a 24-page answer booklet and a 32-page answer sheet will be given to the Intermediate students on their respective exam day.
A notification regarding this one student, one answer sheet policy has been issued to all schools and colleges in Faisalabad.
According to the officials, this step has been taken to keep a check on students cheating during exams. Speaking to Samaa TV, a board official said that whenever the members of “copying mafia” always aim to cheat while asking for extra sheets.
To overcome this problem, Matric and Intermediate students from now on should be able to answer in their 24-page and 32-page booklets, respectively.
Access to only a single sheet will make the students stick to the point and write their answers concisely. The board officials have also warned that irrelevant stuff in the answer sheets will be penalized.
This is a good step taken by BISE, Faisalabad. It will also overshadow the wrong perception of “more sheets, more marks” among students and they will focus more on the conceptual study than rote learning.
