Many times, we heard news about leakage of question paper prior to start of exam process.
There are countless number of incidences happening across multiple universities. Examination process is one of the crucial process of evaluating academic performance of the students. Any such incident of question paper leakage would adversely affect brand value of the education institution or university.
The last few year have seen many disadvantages for the education system in India and have questioned the way we share information in our country. All this fiasco could have been solved if the education system were guided by the power of cryptography and the chain of blocks .We use a public blockchain with decentralized evaluation and maintenance of examination records where everything is in encrypted form to solve all the problems and provide a better alternative.
To address the challenges of current education system, applied approach is called Blockchain In Education System (BIES). Blockchain is a disruptive technology, after a few years of implementation as the basis of digital currency, is showing itself to be an open resource with possibilities in different fields, also in education system .The key to the interest in this technology lies in its ability to move from a system of centralized data logging to a distributed system that ensures no alteration of the information and the maintenance of privacy. The proposed system present the improved examination system for addressing the challenges of paper leaks problems and also focusing the fake college diploma /Degree and other qualifications , is a huge problem in this age of professional-grade copying and printing services .To verify the authenticity of academic certificates and preventing the paper leak problem , proposed model employing a block chain technology, because of its greater security and transparency, less maintenance and lower cost than traditional alternatives.

Will Physical Books Be Gone In 5 Years?
With advancing technology comes innovation. Technology has enabled us to come up with compressed pdf formats of several books, e-books etc. which has led to the innovation of reading devices such as kindle. Several apps have been developed that provide graphic Explanations along with textual information making it easier to grasp things. Sometimes It is Just so much more convenient to read something on the go in your phone / tablet /laptop.
E-books have several pros such as- can be read even in the dark; No need to carry multiple books, you have it all in your device! No need to worry about damaging the book! Pages torn? Lost your book? Pssh…It’s online! View it on any device! Don’t know what a word means?
Double tap on the word in your tablet and it’ll show you the definition. So, does this indicate that physical books will disappear in next five years? Even though use of physical books might reduce but they its use can never completely end. These E-books do have cons. They Require Special devices such as kindle and also a charger to charge the device. Print does not run one energy and it can be used in the most remote places of the world. Kindle is indeed expensive for many people. But in case of physical
books people can buy re-used books at a cheaper price and even pass on the used ones. Though the e-books can be accessed on phones and laptops but long time use of these has damaging impact on our health (headaches, irritation in eyes etc.). Service may revoke licensed content you’ve purchased. But a hardcopy of the book you buy is solely yours and its sentimental values are retained with you forever.
Every time you open your eBook, you place is remembered and instantly travelled to, which can be seen as an advantage. However, after clicking on the book for the first time, how many times do you see
the cover design afterwards? How many times do you see the title? With a physical copy, you memories new details about the book’s form every time you open it.Talking about the educational books, it’s observed that having a physical book in one’s hand enables him/her to memories things better.
Underlining, highlighting and making small notes in the book using pen/pencil enables one to recollect details easily. Studying from a physical copy also means that along with the current page we do come
Across some other pages which enables us to revise things. Ask an avid reader for her/his opinion, its ‘Physical book’ for more than 90% of them. Books have bodily loveliness. Books have origin.
Your most liked books outline you, and digital versions don’t seem to communicate quite as deep. Touching the cover, feeling the paper, its texture, smelling the scent of a brand-new book, turning the pages, these little details cannot be experienced from digital media. In this respect even the Millennial agree. Bibliophile’s joy resides not only in reading the text but in imbibing its aesthetics which comes from feeling and soaking in the book’s prismatic cover page, collecting the physical copies and organizing them. Having the books shelved tidily provides a comforting vibe. Thus, complete disappearance of physical books in next five years seems implausible.
