The CBSE board has this year used technology to ensure better security, after continuous paper leaks came up last year including class 12 economics and class 10 mathematics question papers were confirmed to be compromised.
CBSE had released a mobile-based application called Confidential Material Tracking and Monitoring (CMTM) app which sent geo-tagged and time-tagged pictures of exam day processes to centre supervisors, board executives and other people concerned. According to the reports, the app was used at the time of collection, opening and sealing of question papers to prevent mishandling.
This year too, many videos claiming that CBSE class 10 and class 12 question papers have been leaked went viral on social media. The board had filed FIR against the channels claiming to have original question papers of class 12 accountancy, chemistry, English, and class 10 mathematics and science papers but no truth was found in the claims by the YouTube channels.
