It is not a joke, the Database of ICSE (Class X), ISC (Class XII), and CBSE, was breached by Indian student in Cornell University.
20 Year Old Kolkata-born Debarghya Das, a student in Cornell University, breached into the Database of ICSE, ISC, and CBSE before the Results were announced.
He breached into The ICSE Website on request of some juniors and found some shocking facts, how the marks was inflated, He also added how he breached into the database, it was very simple some of the codes were hidden in the html code of the website he found it and got access to the entire result.
He ran analytics on the data and compiled graphs to show overall performance of students. and found how the marks were standrised.
Moreover He Collected some evidence to justify his Analytics:
- There were specific numbers, in no real pattern, that were missing for the distribution of the entire distribution of all subjects achieved by all students. And these missing numbers were regularly interspersed on the number line. For example, 81, 82, 84, 85, 87, 89, 91 and 93 were visibly missing. No one in India has achieved these marks in ICSE.
- 32,33,34 three consecutive numbers were visibly found absent were 35 was the passing marks.
- In case of ICSE From the 66 numbers between 35, the pass mark, and 100, the maximum possible Only 33 were attained these numbers were left unattained and were not awarded to a single student 36, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 56, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 68, 70, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, 82, 84, 85, 87, 89, 91, 93. Thats in total of 33 numbers.
In fact that was very shocking to see these data. and just think how these education system are awarding marks.
