No re-test for leaked CBSE Class X Maths paper

National Edu News

New Delhi: The Ministry of Human Resource Development and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) together decided not to conduct a re test for the Class X Mathematics paper which was leaked prior to the examination on March 28.

The Ministry had said earlier that it would take a call within 15 days whether or not  to conduct the examination again.

The CBSE had cancelled the  Class X  Maths exam on the day it was held after it was reported that the question paper was widely circulating on WhatsApp.

“Consequent to the preliminary evaluation of the impact of reportedly leaked CBSE Class  X 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 ,” tweeted Anil Swarup, the School Education Secretary.

This new assurance from officials has spread a wave of relief  among students, parents and teachers across India.

This year, a total of 16,38,428 candidates had registered for CBSE’s  Class  X examination. Out of that, roughly 100,000 students took the Maths exam. The exams were conducted at 4,453 centres across India and 78 centres outside India. 

The class Class X board Board examination was reintroduced  this year after the government decided to do away with the Comprehensive and Continuous Evaluation (CCE) adopted earlier. The board had revised the passing criteria as well. Now Class X students need to score only 33 percent overall to pass.
