The Board of Secondary Education Manipur (BOSEM) has dismissed allegations of a suspected leak of an English subject question paper.
Speaking to media persons, BOSEM secretary Mangijao said that following complaints by Manipur Youth and Students' Union (MYSU) and an investigation by the Board officials, it was found that a package containing micro notes and answers was thrown inside the school campus around 11 AM, i.e. two hours after the commencement of the examination.
"As they have reported that there has been mass copying in some of the examination centres..so in the future exams we will deploy inspection teams for the remaining five subjects," the BOSEM secretary added.
