The board announced the cancellation of the Class 10 Maths exam on the day it was held after reports of paper leak
The Ministry of Human Resource Development and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have decided not to reconduct the Class 10 mathematics examination anywhere in India, including Delhi/NCR and Haryana.
“Consequent to the preliminary evaluation of the impact of reportedly leaked CBSE class 10 maths paper & keeping in mind the paramount interest of students, CBSE has decided not to conduct re-examination even in the states of Delhi NCR and Haryana. Hence, no re-exam for class 10,” School Education Secretary Anil Swarup said in twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
The CBSE announced the cancellation of the Class 10 Maths exam on the day it was held after reports of paper leaks. Mr. Swarup had said the government would take a call within 15 days on whether the exam should be held in Delhi/NCR and Haryana, if at all, while announcing that it would not be held anywhere else.
The police investigation is on into the papers leak and a few people have been arrested and an official has been placed under suspension.
Court seeks response from CBSE
The Delhi High Court on Monday sought response from the CBSE on its plans to reconduct the examination. The court also sought response from the HRD Ministry and the Delhi Police on a petition seeking a court-monitored probe into the papers leak.
The National Human Rights Commission on Monday said it had issued notices to the HRD Ministry, the CBSE and the Delhi Police over the papers leaks. It sought a detailed report in four weeks.
