The Secondary School Examination Board should take necessary steps against cheating which has become rampant during examinations. The future and prosperity of the country depends on its educational development and the examination board has to be effective for that. Unfortunately, in Pakistan the system is getting weaker day by day. People are caught cheating but no action is taken against them to deter others that might want to emulate them. To overcome this problem, strict and immediate action should be taken against people involved in cheating. -RAFIA RUSTAM, Karachi, via e-mail, March 25.
