It has been used as a means of unfair way of being passed in a public examination or to get an admission in the universities or to get a job. Since after the independence, questions papers have been subjected to be leaked out. But it was a very rare case. It has become so frequent nowadays. If there is a public examination in the country, it is heard that the question paper is leaked out. Sometimes, the authority postpones the examination, sometimes the scheduled examination is held with the leaked question paper.

A good number of people are engaged in leaking question papers in Bangladesh. Rather, there has been a syndicate which is very much active in leaking question papers before the exams. Undoubtedly, they have a strong connection with the government officials and the politicians by which they are committing such a crime. This syndicate remains unreachable. The tiny criminals are found. The system which is responsible is still doing their act before the exam.
There is a lack of confidentiality among the organizations and the Bangladesh Government Press. Moreover, the people who have the administrative power are misusing their power for personal interest.
The coaching centres of SSC, JSC, PSC, HSC, university and medical admission coaching centres are accelerating the crime of questions paper leak. The people of some coaching centres are trying to misguide the students unfairly. For that reason, they allure the government officials through the financial and political connections. As a result, they are given the questions pares set before the exams. Moreover, they sell those question papers to their students at a high price.

The modern society has been filled with such unfair morals that our young generation is failing to recognize the truth. They cannot be able to differentiate between the right and wrong. Our family teaching and the social ethics are not enough to prevent our children from going astray. They are learning corrupted and unfair ways in the student life. Our trusted educational institutions are teaching them how to gain good marks instead of how to gain good knowledge and education.

Consequently, the wrong people are given the wrong place. So, it is very simple for them to take the wrong decisions. In this way, our system is responsible for corruption.
The phenomenon of leaking question paper is destroying the students’ creativity. When they find the shortcut way of success, they cannot resist themselves to adopt this way. In this way, the talents of our children are misused and their intelligence is destroyed. The nation is deprived of having a talented and truly educated manpower.
The safety measures and the confidentiality should be maintained Properly. The modern CCTV cameras should be installed in the Bangladesh Governments Press. The staff should not allowed to go out or move for having meal, or prayers. The administrative capability of the press and the concerned organizations must be strengthened. The government should be more concerned and adopt a vast range of preventive measures for fighting the question paper leak.
The civil society and the media can play an immense role in this context. The educationists, the lawyers, the social scientists, the political leaders and people from all walks of life have to come forward to raise their voice against the frequent leaking of question paper. The media can augment social consciousness by publishing editorials, telecasting news and talk shows on this topic. They can also encourage people to fight against this crime and to identify the criminals.

Consequently, the students’ valuable time has to be lost. But it is obvious that all the students are not responsible for this crime. Unfortunately, the innocent students and job seekers have to bear the loss. However, this unrighteous act should be stopped immediately.
