While demanding enquiry to the alleged leaking English question paper of class XII examination conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur, Student bodies DESAM and AIMS has announced boycott of Tony Coaching Centre until the truth is revealed by the committee.
Speaking to media in a press meet held at its temporary office, Secretary General of DESAM Shital Oinam said that they have boycotted Tony Coaching Centre which is run by Laiphrakpam Tony who is an English teacher at Johnstone Higher Secondary School for allegedly leaking question paper of Class 12 English paper examination.
He said that they have found out various questions of Advance writing skills questions similar with the Mega mock test conducted by the said Coaching Centre and the 12th examination question. He further said that such similarity of the question in the mock test with the question paper of the class XII final exam conducted by COHSEM is shocking. The DESAM leader also said that answers given on option are also similar.
The students’ body demanded immediate enquiry by COHSEM and Directorate of Education (s) and added that the Coaching Centre should be stopped until the enquiry is completed.
Shital Oinam further stressed that they observed a new trend of using unfair means in the examination. He said that recent trend include leakage of questions to the students prior to the exam and leakage of questions by the teacher asking in mock test conducted by Coaching centre and in revision courses.
Highlighting the reason behind the new trend of using unfair means Shital added that some unethical teachers who should be in a confidential state for being a question setter for their sole purpose of increasing their students of the Coaching centre suggest the students with questions with slight modifications.
He said that similar incidents too happened in the past many years and a series of talks were also done with question setter regarding such matters.
“What worried us is that no actions were taken up by the concerned Education department and also BOSEM and COHSEM being a silent spectator”, Shital added.
Shital appealed the teachers to stop giving suggestion, Mock test and doing tuitions who held the responsibility for being confidential of BOSEM and COHSEM. He added that BOSEM, COHSEM and Education (S) should also order to stop government teachers in establishing Coaching Centre and teaching in Coaching centre.
Shital said that BOSEM and COHSEM should deliver the documents directly to the teachers not to the school or any other third person if it is a confidential one. He added that there isn’t any sign of confidentiality as many were aware of the question setters.
He appealed to look into the matter regarding such issues and take appropriate steps to maintain confidentiality.
