The Central Board of Seconday Education (CBSE) has shared a two and a half minute video with schools in order to sensitise the students for not using unfair means during the exams, reports Hindustan Times.
According to the report, instruction has been given by the board to the schools to show the video to all students so that they attempt their papers honestly.
The video reportedly shows a boy who is regular in classes, school and passes in every subject in each term. He never opts for any unfair means despite getting flunked in the final mathematics exam.
In the video, the student says that despite his best efforts to study at night, he fell asleep and got anxious on the exam day. The video further shows that when the student takes the exam next time, he attempts 15 questions in two and half hours and cheats rest of the answers by copying from another student’s answer sheet. Subsequently, he passes the exam and receives a certificate from the institute for clearing the exam with a good score.
However, at the end of the video, the boy realises that cheating is not the solution to pass an examination and that there is a need to attempt the paper honestly.
As per the report, CBSE has also uploaded videos on aggression, depression, exam anxiety, specific learning ability, life skills and internet addiction disorder on its website.
