Amidst reports of alleged paper leaks, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to reschedule the Class 12th Economics and Class 10 Mathematics exams. The dates for the exam shall be released on the CBSE website within a week, the board said in a statement.
Earlier last week, images of a handwritten question paper were wildly circulated among various Whatsapp groups. However, on Monday, when the teachers handed over the papers to the students, it came to their notice that the question paper was the same that they had previously received.
A couple of weeks earlier on March 15 too, the Delhi Government said that it had received reports of class 12 CBSE Accountancy paper being leaked following which an investigation was ordered, even as the board denied any such leak.
“We have checked with all examination centres and the paper was not leaked. The source of the circulation of this information is not known yet. We want to urge the students and parents to not panic and assure them that the board is doing its best to ensure sanctity of the examination,” a senior CBSE official had said.
Meanwhile, some parents, teachers, and students have decided to move to Delhi High Court seeking re-exams and independent probe into the matter. Some of the students and teachers have claimed that even the class XII Biology exam and the Class X Social Studies were also leaked among others.
We shall bring you the latest official reports on CBSE Board exams soon.
