Panaji/ Vasco: Appealing to the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) students not to believe in any message uploaded on the social media as regards changes in their seating arrangement for the forthcoming SSC examination, the authorities of the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education on Tuesday informed that the cyber cell of the Goa police has already been informed as regards spread of such fake information by unknown miscreants. The SSC examination is scheduled to commence on April 2, 2019.
The Goa Board secretary Bhagirath Shetye told this daily that some miscreants are sending messages on WhatsApp groups that the examination related to seating arrangements of SSC students from Vasco have been shifted to Calangute.
“Such messages are fake and aimed towards damaging the examination system of the Goa Board,” he added, requesting the SSC students and their parents to strictly refer to the official website of Goa Board for seating arrangements or any other exam related information.
The assistant district education inspector (ADEI) Mormugao Valsala Vishwambaran however has told media that students and parents should not fall prey to fake posts. “I have confirmed with the Goa Board and also with the chief conductor of SSC examination about the news being circulated on social media. The seating arrangements are wrong and fake and cause confusion in the minds of innocent students and parents. I appeal to the students and parents not to get confused with the fake and wrong posts. Kindly go through the Goa Board website for any queries or else to meet the chief conductor of SSC examinations Alvito Fernandes who is also the headmaster of St Joseph Institute Vasco”, said Vishwambaran.
Meanwhile, taking cognizance of the wrong SSC seating arrangement posts on social media, the chief conductor of SSC examination in Vasco Fernandes gave details of the correct seating arrangements for the SSC examination to be held in April 2019, conducted by the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.
