Gangadhar Tamhane, chairman, MSBSHSE, said, “With increasing use of the Internet, the number of question papers getting leaked has also gone up. To deal with the problem, we will not allow students to enter examination halls after 10.30 to 11 am. Earlier, students were allowed to enter the hall till 11.30 am. We are also mulling over whether we can install CCTVs at exam halls. Examination papers will be sent directly to examination halls and not to the centres.”
