Uttar Pradesh acts to stop cheating in board exams

The Uttar Pradesh government decided to end the existing system of students taking the board exams in their own schools to check cheating during examinations.As per a government order, the 'self examination' system has been banned with immediate effect.The self examination system was introduced by former chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav.Prior to Yadav's return to power for the third time in 2004, the overall results stood at just about 40 percent at the Class 10 level and 70 percent in Class 12.However, they shot up to 74 percent in Class 10 and 89 percent in Class 12 soon after the self examination system was introduced.
