It stated, “The Board has noticed a tremendous reduction in the incidence of impersonation and other forms of infractions.

“However, the Board would review all the CCTV footage and other installed technical gadgets for possible examination misconduct.

“As part of its tradition, the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the results of candidates found to have perpetrated any form of examination malpractice.”
