Subject: Exam suspended due to following unfair means


Recently, our school authority has suspended an ongoing internal exam because of following unfair means by many students. In this letter to your esteemed daily, I want to express my concern regarding the situation of general students due to this issue. 

I am a student of class 10 from Nabinpally Sukumari High School, who appeared in an internal test exam for our upcoming board examination. From the very initial day of our examination, some students were using unfair means for almost every paper. Some of them were using cheat sheets, some were using secret electronic gadgets. Almost every day, invigilators started booking more than five students for using unfair means, and with time it was being really hard to deal with the issue. Eventually yesterday, our school has announced a complete suspension of the internal test exam and notified us that it will be commenced in near future after ensuring proper surveillance infrastructure to deal with this issue of using unfair means. 

This decision is quite shocking for the general students like me who are trying their best to prepare and score in the first major exam of our life. This harsh decision has severely affected our enthusiasm, efforts and our motivation.

Subject: Usage of unfair means in examinations in a village school


I am a regular follower of your esteemed daily writing this letter today to bring some light concern on an important issue of using unfair means in examinations in a village school, I recently had as my professional experience. 

I am a part-time teacher at a school in a distant village. Right after my joining, I am noticing a tendency in the school that students of almost every class uses unfair means in the examinations to get themselves passed. To my surprise, not even a single teacher is ready to prevent and control such an unfair activity in the school. Thereafter, I got to know that both the guardians and students attack the teacher or staff who try to prevent their children from using unfair means in exams. Incidents like this have a significant history in this village. 

This tendency is eventually worsening the quality of education throughout the entire village. In this context, the administration needs to step in to protect to teachers and staff of the school. Only then, we shall have the courage to ensure proper examination procedures. Through this letter in the column of your esteemed daily, I earnestly appeal to the government to look into this matter with no further delay. 

Yours Sincerely,
Rumi Bannerjee

Subject: Unfair means in examinations and downfall of the educational machinery


The last few years have witnessed a sudden increase in using unfair means in examinations in our state. This letter to your esteemed daily is intended to evaluate this situation.

Education and qualification are among the most important pillars of our society. That’s why any kind of compromise with the education machinery is synonyms to compromising with society. In the recent few years, a trend of using unfair means in various examinations have been noticed throughout our state. Unfair means in education has always been a major problem for the education machinery of the entire country. But at the state level, many states have become successfully able to control this unfair tendency by taking strict actions. Our state has such provisions as well. But still, in the last few years, the number of reports of using high-scale unfair means in various important examinations have been very frequent. Advanced nanotechnological gadgets are contributing more to this unfair practice.

This trend will eventually degrade the quality of mass qualification if the government doesn’t take immediate steps to control it. We have all the necessary laws regarding this matter. The need of the hour is a proper enforcement mechanism to revive the educational machinery in the state.

Yours Sincerely,
Aditya Bansal

Subject: New education policy in tackling unfair means in examinations


The government has recently launched their new education policy in order to improvise many aspects of the state education sector. Through this letter to your esteemed daily, I want to express my evaluation of this policy’s efficiency to control the practice of unfair means in various examinations.

In the last few years, our state has witnessed an increase in the practice of unfair means in various examinations. Finally yesterday, the honourable education minister has announced the new education policy under which more strict provisions have been included to prevent the practice of such unfair means. Besides, this policy has given the power to the police authority to take action more actively without any interruption. Moreover, all kinds of preventive steps have been included with this policy.

In my opinion, this policy during such a time should be welcomed by everybody, The government has done whatever they can to prevent unfair practices in exams. Now what they must ensure is the enforcement of this policy non-arbitrarily and the transparency in the process. Time will be speaking the rest.

Yours Sincerely,
