BOPEE introduces OMR carbon copy concept
FIRST TIME IN JK
Srinagar, Mar 28: To ensure transparency in conduct of tests, the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations has introduced a concept of providing carbon copy of the OMR (answer) sheets to the students.
This move is first of its kind in the state and aims at checking the wrong evaluation the complaint about which was often raised by the students.
The concept of carbon copy was introduced by BOPEE today during the examination of medical students for different courses including Doctor of Medicines, Doctor of Surgeons, PG diplomas and Master of Dental Surgery.
“Now students can take the carbon copies of OMR sheets home and evaluate their own performance. We have been able to achieve hundred per cent transparency in examination,” chairman of the Board, Prof Mushtaq Ahmad Peer told Greater Kashmir.
Explaining the concept, Peer said OMR sheets were provided with a self carbon copy so that anything written on answer sheet gets copied on it.
At least 1,848 students had appeared for examinations in these courses in Kashmir as well as Jammu. There were 10 centres each notified for the examination in both the regions. The number of students which appeared in examinations included 958 in Kashmir and 890 in Jammu.
The Board is planning to continue with the concept in future as well and would also be introducing it during the Common Entrance Test for different professional courses including medical and non-medical.
“These examinations are important and are vigorously watched by people as well as students,” said secretary Board, Amar Singh said.
Two papers each for MS, MD and a paper for Master of Dental Surgery were held today. The results would be out within 24 hours and the Board is planning to SMS the results to the students who had appeared in the examinations, asserted Singh.
Students were thrilled on the introduction of the carbon copy concept. “It is student friendly and would ensure transparency in evaluation of the answer sheets. The student can now pinpoint any mistake in the evaluation process to their advantage,” said a student after coming out from examination center here.
