CBSE announces Class X, XII re-exam

CBSE announces Class X, XII re-exam

Students and parents across the country are very disappointed after the CBSE made a decision to re-conduct the Class 10 mathematics and Class 12 economics board examinations over reports that the question papers were leaked.

While the Mathematics paper was conducted today, Class XII's Economics paper was conducted on Monday.

On March 26, Class XII CBSE understudies were left shocked after the gossipy tidbits about their Economics paper being spilled via web-based networking media hours before the examination.

Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar admitted to the paper leak and said a special team of the Delhi Police is investigating.

The board's decision came on Wednesday following reports of paper-leak of the two subjects.

With reports of a leak, parents took to social media and voiced their discontentment at the CBSE for failing to prevent the leaks.

"It was indicated in the papers kept inside the envelope that the question paper was leaked and circulated through WhatsApp group numbers", the complaint said. The board will soon reschedule the exam dates for both the papers and going to conduct the examinations.

But NFL players have no limit on who can follow them on social media and aren't punished for reaching out to the cheerleaders. Davis is also accused of being seen at a party with Saints players, another violation of team rules for their cheerleaders.

"The source of the circulation of this information is not known yet", CBSE added.

They question that why should they be forced to appear the exam again when the leak was limited to New Delhi.

In the course of investigations, Delhi Police have interrogated 25 people, mostly students who had access to the handwritten question papers.

He said a gang is responsible for the paper leak and assured of a better mechanism to prevent more leaks from Monday onwards.

"We demand high-level inquiry into the leaks and appeal to the students and parents to initiate a movement till all the demands are met", AIDSO vice president Rahul Sarkar said.

Seeking to reach out to parents and students anxious over the alleged incidents of repeated leaks, Javadekar said he has spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and apprised him about the developments. As per students, some more papers have also been leaked.
