CBSE not to hold re-examination of class X maths paper

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided not to conduct re-examination of Class X mathematics paper for the national capital region of Delhi and Haryana.

It has decided not to re-conduct the examinations of the subject after "a preliminary evaluation" of the impact of the reports of the Class X mathematics paper leak while keeping in mind "the paramount interest of students."

The CBSE, however, did not share details about the "preliminary evaluation" which prompted it to decide not to hold re-examinations of the paper in the country.

"Consequent to the preliminary evaluation of the impact of reportedly leaked CBSE class X maths paper and 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 X," HRD ministry's school education department secretary Anil Swarup announced at micro-blogging site Twitter on Wednesday.

Last week, Swarup announced at a press conference that CBSE will conduct re-examinations for Class XII economics paper all over the country on April 25.

The board, however, will not conduct re-examinations for class X mathematics paper for all students across the country, he said. "If at all, re-examinations of the Class X mathematics paper has to be held, it will be done only for the national capital region of Delhi and Haryana in July. Re-examination of the class X paper will not be held in rest of the States," Swarup told reporters.

The CBSE will also not conduct re-examination of the two papers for the students appearing in their Class X and Class XII board examinations abroad, he also clarified.
