Bihar Board 10th Result 2017 was announced yesterday. Although there is a marginal increase in the overall pass percentage, there is a visible decline in the quality of education. The methods and standards used for current education system are outdated. They tend to make crib more of the text rather than educating them. Meanwhile, from past two years reports of fraud and cheating are heard from BSEB. This is very shameful for an education board to fail in a successful and secure conduction of examination. Also, it is quite evident that what kind of pressure is upon the students. This pressure forces the students to look for fraudulent ways to score marks. The governments should revise the examination model and education system.
