Education minister Dipu Moni on Sunday said that she directed the officials concerned to submit reports over distribution of wrong question papers among students on the first day of the ongoing Secondary School Certificate and its equivalent examinations.

After a visit to Government Madrassah-e-Alia at Bakshibazar in the capital, she also said that in some cases immediate actions had been taken over the wrong question papers distribution.

The minister said that they were also looking into the matter of some printing mistakes in some question papers on the first day of SSC exams.

If any examinee needs to go out of the exam centre, he or she has to leave the question paper in the hall room so that it’s spreading through internet can be prevented, she also said.

Earlier on Saturday, question papers meant for the examinees of 2018 were distributed among those of 2019 at some centres in the capital, Chattogram, Munshiganj, Satkhira, and Madaripur, according to officials.
