Cuttack: Taking stock of the situation after English language question paper of Odisha Matric exam allegedly went viral today morning, Board of Secondary Education’s President Jahan Ara Begum said, “The ‘viral’ question paper does not match with the actual one. So it is definitely a rumor.”

“The paper that is being shown on the television screens is not the question paper that was distributed to the candidates today. There is no similarity between the two. I would ask the students to stop panicking as some anti-social elements are spreading such rumors. We have tightened the security measures after the Odia paper went viral on Friday and necessary action was also taken against the accused persons. So, I believe that everything has gone smoothly today,” she added.

Meanwhile, students seemed to be satisfied after appearing for the English exam. When the news was revealed to them that the paper had allegedly gone viral, they said that they condemned such activities and people should not play with their futures.

While 5,87,720 students were appearing the Odia exam today at 2953 centres, the Set-A of English question paper started surfacing on Whatsapp messages. The paper reportedly surfaced on social media in Bolangir district and soon went viral everywhere.
