Dear students do not fall for paper leak scams!!
Come CBSE exams and along comes a list of do's and don'ts to make a mark in
your career's decisive years. With the Board exams just around the corner,
students are trying their best to cope up with the 'exam-phobia'!!
While some are extremely confident about their preparations, others suffer
thanks to the accompanying stress. The reason why exams produce so much stress
in students is fear. It is the fear of failing or getting low marks.
And this constantly builds up stress which beyond some point, becomes too
much to deal with. Let's look at some common reactions of the Board exam
Aanchal, a 16-year-old who is although a very good student
has stopped studying, she simply can not. She is unable to concentrate, vomits
these days, has become prone to crying and has already lost 5 kgs. Her mother
has developed severe hysteria about the examinations, too.
Charu, a 16-year-old has always been a rank holder, and is
seeing herself as a motivated, intelligent student after having already revised
the complete course once. Not only academics, she had also been actively
participating in extra-curricular works such as debating, dramatics and creative
writing. She is all confident about topping her class at least. In other words,
she does not see stress as distress.
Mansi, a 16-year old is not ready to face the Boards. It's too early for her
and the syllabus has been piling up ever since she entered the class. She is
waiting for some magic to take place so that she can peep into the question
paper before the exams. She just wants to be lucky enough to pass the exams. She
hasn't yet understood that 'Luck is what happens when preparation meets
Most of the students are like Aanchal and Charu. But, then there a few like
Mansi, too. They cannot come to terms with failure. But they can not get
themselves to study either. And they fall into the trap of cheating. They try
every possible way to get the examination paper secretly out before the actual
examination. They are ready to pay a huge amount of money and end up falling
prey to hoax calls.
Previous years have also seen some paper leak scams that are listed below.
Case 1: In 2011, three persons, Krishnan Raju, principal of government senior
secondary school at Lapati, Rashid, an executive engineer of the Andamans PWD

and Mathematics of Class XII.

making money through the AIEEE 2011 paper leak.
