The re-examination of CBSE Class 12 economics paper will be held on April 25, while the plan for CBSE Class 10 mathematics re-test has been dropped. The Supreme Court (SC) today dismissed all petitions related to the CBSE’s question paper leaks, saying it won’t interfere with any of the Board’s decision on a re-exam. The apex court also turned down a plea for a CBI inquiry into the leaks of the Class 10 Mathematics paper and the Class 12 Economics paper. It dismissed a batch of petitions filed by students and parents.
The plea filed by Girija Krishan Varma and Sahil Tagotra, counsels on behalf of parents Monica Sharma, Rashmi Arora, and Mahinder Pratap Singh, of CBSE Class 12 students said the re-test jeopardizes many career plans for the CBSE Class XII students. However, the court his dismissed the plea.
CBSE class 10 maths paper leak: CBSE has decided not to conduct the re-exam after evaluating the impact of the leaked paper and keeping in mind the best interests of the students. The decision has brought a major relief to over 1.6 million Class 10 students, including nearly 200,000 from Delhi-NCR and Haryana.
The class 12 economics and class 10 maths papers were held on 26 March and 28 March, respectively. On 28 March, CBSE announced it would re-conduct Class 12 economics and Class 10 maths examinations as both papers were leaked. The decision has seen widespread anger among students across the country who have been protesting since last Wednesday.
