The CBSE, in last two days, has sent several alerts regarding fake question papers being circulated which including the class 10 Sanskrit, class 12 Political Science and Hindi papers.
However, reports emerged today that, the CBSE exam started late at few centres in the national capital as many of them expressed inability to follow the new system of printing encrypted question papers, e-mailed to them, at the school itself.
The board officials, however, assured that the students would be given extra time to ensure the delay doesn't cause them any loss, reported PTI.
"We received (encrypted) question papers at 10 AM from the bank as CBSE officials gave it late. Papers were distributed at 10.45 AM instead of 10.15 AM," the principal of an East Delhi school told on condition of anonymity.
