Sarma said, "Last year there were errors in conducting the HSLC/AHM examination due to which we had to face a lot of flak from the media and the public. This time we want to ensure that these mistakes are not repeated." He said that action had been taken against the headmasters of the four schools where anomalies were reported in conducting the HSLC/AHM examination in 2012.
"This year if there are anyanomalies while conducting the HSLC/AHM examination, the in-charge of those centreswhere anomalies are reported will be held responsible. If they are proved guilty, action will be taken against them within 72 hours. Also, if the school inspectors do not submit their reports, action will be taken against those school inspectors within 48 hours. So, those in charge of the examination centres are advised to form a four-member committee to help in conducting the exam smoothly," said Sarma.

"Admit cards have been issued to the candidates. Some headmasters sent wrong information due towhich there are errors in some admit cards. These headmasters have been issued showcause notice. A total of 823 admit cards have been returned to SEBA so far as there are errors in those admit cards. The errors will be done away with but we will also try to find out the reasons why these errors were committed in the first place," said the Minister.
He added that if those in-charge of the examination centres faced any problems during the examination period, they would be able to get in touch with SEBA officials through a helpline number.
