The BSEK chairman said 135 unfair means cases and 18 cases of impersonations were reported during the papers. He said all these were referred to the BSEK disciplinary action committee.

Students appearing at some centres complained that papers started one hour later but they were forced to submit answer scripts in two hours. They appealed the board’s administration to take necessary action.The news.
