Stringent ways to check impersonation at UP Technical University


As per the news, UP Technical University (UPTU) has introduced some changes in the state entrance examination-2014 for admissions to technical colleges. The changes are made keeping in view the cases of last year’s large-scale impersonation.

Change 1:- Candidates appearing for the exam will have to write two to three sentences in their own handwriting on the first page of the question paper booklet.

Since exam is objective type, there was no proof of whether the applicant and the examinee were the same.

Change 2: Changes in admit card

Another major change is in the admit cards. Officials said this year, admit card will have two columns for candidate’s signature and their thumb impression. All candidates can download their admit card.

In one column, candidates signature and thumb impression will be scanned from their application forms. In the second column, candidates will have to fill in signature and thumb impression in front of the invigilator while taking the exam.

Other changes:

There will be two columns for the candidate’s photograph. While one column will have a scanned copy, the candidate will have to put a colour photograph to be attested by a gazetted officer or the head of the institution last attended by the candidate.

The admit card will also have a barcode printed on it to ensure no proxy candidate takes the exam.
