The Central Board of Secondary Education has determined to re-conduct the examinations for Economics (Class 12th) and Mathematics (for Class 10).
The board has taken cognizance of certain happenings in the conduct of individual examinations as are being reported. With the view to upholding the sanctity of the Board Examinations and in the interest of the fairness to the students, the Board has decided to re-conduct the examinations. Dates for new exams and the other details shall be hosted on the CBSE website within a week, a CBSE notice said.
While CBSE is yet to clarify if the re-exam will be for Delhi region or all India, more reports emerged today that the Class X Maths paper was being circulated on Tuesday night in the other areas as well.
This is not the first occurrence where Board exam papers conducted by CBSE were leaked. In 2006, the police unsealed the leaked CBSE question paper of Business Studies while it was searching for suspects related to the Varanasi bomb blasts. The cops in Panipat in Haryana searched every hotel and Dhaba for information related to the bombings and, instead, found the leaked papers.
