WB CM Mamata Banerjee has conveyed best wishes to the students appearing for West Bengal Secondary Examination beginning today, 23 February 2015.

This year 442716 male and 496143 female candidates are appearing for the examination. Compared to male students, female students are more in number by 53 thousand.

The examination will commence at 11:45 AM and will continue till 3 PM today. About 2738 exam centres have been set up across the state which will also be monitored by a videography.

The West Bengal Government is taking all precautionary measures to conduct a peaceful examination process.

The Secondary Board has taken strict measures to prevent any type of malpractices. Prior to the distribution of question papers, teachers and non teaching staff will have to switch off their mobile phones and submit to the Principal except for Venue Supervisor and three other officials who need to be in touch with the Board. All photocopying shops within 100 metres of the centres will remain closed till the examination is over.

Each centre has medical aid to attend the examinees in case of need. The district magistrates have been instructed to take special measures for convenience of the students to reach the examination hall on time.
