Gujarat: Nearly a thousand students are in the dock for alleged mass copying in Gujarat after authorities decided to withhold their results over identical answers and mistakes in exam papers.

The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) is planning to cancel the exams after 959 class XII general stream students were found to have written “ditto” answers for same questions, in the same sequence, and even committed same mistakes.

Acting on complaints, the board officials detected the mass copying scandal after scrutinising answer sheets from several examination centres in Junagadh and Gir-Somnath districts, The Times of India reported.
