Ahmed­abad: The Gu­jarat Se­condary and Higher Se­condary Ed­u­ca­tion Board (GSHSEB) has caught 96 copy­cats from an exam cen­tre in Panchma­hal dis­trict for mass copy­ing in English (sec­ond lan­guage) pa­per in SSC board ex­ams held re­cently. In­ter­est­ingly, it was their col­lec­tive best friend ‘Vikram’ who spilled the beans, as all 96 stu­dents had writ­ten a photo-copy es­say on ‘ My Best Friend’ with­out chang­ing the name and ba­sic traits of their pal.

Sources in the GSHSEB said that the board was alerted about mass copy­ing in six cen­tres, in­clud­ing Kawali, Gondal, Mota Konda, Ko­d­i­nar, Mahis­agar and Morva Raina in the last leg of the SSC boards. Fol­low­ing this, pa­pers of 240 stu­dents sus­pected to have been in­volved in mass copy­ing were set aside for scru­tiny. The stu­dents were sum­moned to GSHSEB’s Gand­hi­na­gar of­fice for ques­tion­ing.
