Ahmedabad: After the Bihar Board scam, now the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) is in the news for a bizarre reason. A Class 12 student decided to check his own Economics paper, using red ink, before handing it in to the supervisor, according to The Times of India.
While the teachers caught the irregularity in Geography in which the student scored 34 marks, his ‘masterclass’ act went unnoticed in Economics paper. He gave himself 100/100 in the subject.
While investigations into the Bihar toppers scandal continue, a ‘matchless’ incident concerning the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) has come to light.

The board has now filed a complaint against the student Harshad Sarvaiya.
