CBSE board cancels Class 10 Maths and Class 12 Economics exmaminations


CBSE Board Exam 2018: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will re-conduct the board examination for class 10 mathematics and class 12 Economics subjects. There had been reports of an alleged paper leak for class 12 Economics exam. The reason for class 10 mathematics re-examination, which was conducted today remains to be clarified. The information about the re-examination was notified by CBSE on it's official website.

Prakash Javadekar addressed a press conference in Delhi about CBSE paper leak. He assured that the board will ensure that any incident of paper leak will be prevented in future. HE also said that the HRD Ministry has also commissioned an internal inquiry into the paper leak issue. He also said that strict action will be taken against those who are involved in the paper leak matter.
 
In the notification, the board has said that the schedule for the re-examination will be released within a week.

CBSE had conducted Economics board exam on March 26, 2018. It was alleged that a hand written question paper had been doing rounds on the messaging service WhatsApp a day prior to the exam. On the date of the exam, teachers were stunned to find that the paper being circulated had same questions as in the actual question paper. 

Students have been alleging paper leak since the board exams started on March 5. While, the board had denied allegations of any paper leak and had called it the work of miscreants, the decision for re-examination does affirm that there had been a lapse on part of the board to ensure a fair examination.

"With the view to uphold the sanctity of the Board Examinations and in the interest of the fairness to the students, the Board has decided to reconduct the examinations in the following subjects. Dates for fresh examinations and the other details shall be hosted on the CBSE website within a week," CBSE notification published on the official website said.

Earlier, on March 15, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had said that he had received complaints about an alleged leak of Class 12 Accountancy paper. "Received complaints about the Class 12 CBSE Accountancy paper being leaked. Have asked officers of Directorate of Education to investigate and lodge a complaint with CBSE," the minister said.

However, the board denied any allegation of paper leak and said that all the seals (of packed question papers) were found intact at all the exam centres.

"There has been no leakage of the question paper. All the seals (of packed question papers) have been found intact at all the exam centres," the Board said in its official statement.

"During the process of examination, however, at local level, some miscreants tried to play mischief by circulating messages through WhatsApp and other social media to disturb the sanctity of examinations," the CBSE had said then.

Commenting on the issue, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said the CBSE leak is a disgrace and accountability is essential. 

"Officials must be culpable, yet it is innocent students who will be punished," he tweeted.
 
Anil Swarup IAS, Secretary, School Education and Literacy, HRD said the unfortunate leak of CBSE question papers has put a large number of students to inconvenience and it is a very serious matter, and is being inquired into. Strict action will be taken against those found guilty.
