Acknowledging the importance of maintaining the sanctity of the examination process, stringent measures have been implemented. Control rooms have been established to monitor the proceedings effectively, with a specific focus on addressing any potential challenges that may arise during the examinations.

In a bid to enhance the security of answer sheets and minimize the risk of malpractices, each district has allocated strong rooms. These rooms serve the critical function of securing and safeguarding the confidential examination materials throughout the duration of the examinations.

These advancements are expected to contribute significantly to the prevention of unauthorized activities and ensure a fair and impartial assessment of the students' performances.
