HRD Minister Javadekar clears 'confusion' over CBSE class 10 Maths re-exam

"We have registered two cases on the complaint of Regional Director, Delhi region of CBSE regarding leakage of Maths paper of Class 10 and Economics paper of Class 12".

In a statement on Wednesday, the board said that it has taken cognisance of certain happenings in the conduct of examinations after which the decision is being taken.

The dates for the fresh examinations and other details will be hosted on the CBSE website within a week. The leak of Economics question paper was reported on Monday, when the exam was scheduled.

They are also questioning the students who had received the leaked exam papers via WhatsApp, as per News 18. According to reports, the leaked question paper matched the original paper today and hence, the board has chose to re-conduct the examination.

In wake of reports claiming paper leaks, the CBSE had announced re-examination yesterday for the two papers.

As per reports, the Math paper had a major chunk of questions from NCERT textbooks. "Dates for re-examination will be announced soon", Karwal told ANI.

According to top sources in the Delhi Police, investigation is now focusing on the role of CBSE officials, invigilators and school staff, coaching centres and printers.

Reports about the economics paper being leaked had circulated on social media, including on WhatsApp, several hours before the paper commenced on Monday.

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. The HRD minister emphasized that the paper leak was limited to only to Delhi and not the whole of India.

It's still not clear what the CBSE will decide at the end of the day but it has again put the future of the students at stake with such lapses in conducting the exams. They assured the students and the parents that the board is doing its best to ensure the sanctity of the examination. Whoever is involved in the paper leak will not be spared.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch on Wednesday set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the alleged leak of the CBSE examination papers.
