Notwithstanding the State-wide hue and cry over the matriculation examination question paper leak incident, the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) authorities on Thursday were not able to workout on the rescheduling of the examinations.

The BSE on Wednesday had cancelled the ongoing matriculation examination after it was found that some questions of seven papers were leaked from an examination centre in Puri district.

“We are now working on to fix the new dates of the examinations and are thinking to do away with the practice of giving a day break between the papers”, said the BSE secretary N.R. Mohapatra on Thursday.

Since the Board was not equipped with any extra set of questions and it was not able to print such huge volumes of question papers immediately, the authorities are now finding it difficult to fix the tentative dates of the examinations. However, it is learnt that the Board officials are already on the job to print the questions on a war-footing manner and send them directly to the examination centres so that the examinations are now held as soon as possible.
