Bhubaneswar: In a significant move after the recent OTET question paper leak, the State government has decided to conduct the examination online.
As per the decision taken at a high-level meeting chaired by School and Mass Education Minister Badri Narayan Patra on Saturday, the Odisha Teacher Eligibility Test (OTET) examination would be conducted online.
Without finding the reason for repeated errors like question leak during the examination, the department preferred to come up with a longtime solution by making the test online. Notably, the OTET examination was cancelled by the Board of Secondary Education (BSE) on January 16 after a question paper got leaked. The photos of the question paper surfaced and went viral on social media during the first sitting of the examination.
Following suggestion from the Crime Branch, a complaint was filed by the BSE at the Mangalabag police station in Cuttack on January 18 in connection with the question paper leak.
