AI-powered Cameras in Exam Halls to Monitor Class 10 Board Exams

By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 14 December 2023

Surveillance cameras powered by artificial intelligence (AI) are set to solve the problem of cheating in Odisha's upcoming class 10 board exams. State-of-the-art cameras will be carefully installed in strong rooms storing examination papers and across key examination centers to ensure transparency and security.

These tests, which are scheduled to take place from February 20 to March 4 next year, will be closely monitored via live-streamed footage to the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) headquarters in Odisha. The goal of this technical project is to detect any abnormalities or discrepancies as soon as possible. "The exams will be closely monitored through AI-powered cameras," Ramashis Hazra, President of the BSE, told PTI. Any irregularities will be brought to our attention right away."

An incredible 5,51,611 pupils have registered for these important exams, which will be held at 2,991 locations around the state. In addition, 313 nodal centers will be constructed to securely store and handle the question papers. According to Hazra, in addition to the class 10 exams, the State Open School Certificate (SOSC) examination will welcome 7,831 students at 55 centers, while the Madhyama examination will host 3,037 students at 107 centers.

The class 10 pupils will take the first language Odia test on February 20, followed by the second language English exam on February 23. Following that, tests for third language, general science, and social science will be held on February 28, March 2, and March 4, respectively. The evaluation process is set to begin on March 15th, at the very least.

According to Nihar Ranjan Mohanty, BSE Vice-President, schools will be required to download them using designated credentials two hours before the test.
