The year 2016 will see the answer sheets of ICSE and ISC exams bear the photo, name and a unique identification number (UID) of the students. The move aims at ensuring transparency and smooth conduct of the tests.

Till last year, each examinee had to write her/his name,unique identification number (UID), and the name of the subject on the answer sheet booklets. An official of the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) said that other than these details, the name of the subject will also be printed. The number of pages of the answer booklets will remain the same – 16 for ICSE and 20 for ISC.

A portion on the top sheet of the booklet will bear the name and photograph which can be torn off and retained by the Council before the answer scripts are distributed for evaluation. This will be done to ensure confidentiality of the students. The booklets received by the examiners will contain the students’ UIDs. Once the scripts are marked, the results will be prepared by matching the UIDs with the corresponding names in the council’s database.

Another step aimed at speeding up the examination system and to make it more transparent, is that of preparing separate sealed packets containing answer booklets of each student. Each packet will have the photo and other identity details of the student printed on it. “Each sealed packet will contain the answer booklets of all subjects in which the particular student will write the test,” the council official said.
