He claimed the examinations this time were held in a fair manner this time and mass cheating in Bihar was a thing of the past. "It is not possible now."

Nearly 112,07,986 students appeared for the Class 12 exams at 1,384 centres across the state.

Mass cheating has been reported in Bihar for years.

Last year, the Class 12 Arts topper turned out to be a 42-year-old man, who had faked his age to take the test. He was arrested on charges of fraud.
