HYDERABAD: As many as 112,839 intermediate students from 10 districts of Hyderabad and Nawabshah divisions will appear in the annual examinations of Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) part I and II starting from Tuesday, April 24.
The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Hyderabad, which will conduct the exams, has set up 142 examination centres, of which 51 have been declared sensitive.
BISE Hyderabad Chairperson Prof Dr Muhammad Memon announced on Thursday that for the first time mobile signal jammers would be used at the sensitive centres.
This implied that the manual method of body search at the centres' entrance and the presence of invigilators inside the examination halls had failed to curb cheating through mobile phones.
