Class 12 Economics re-exam on April 25, decision on Class 10 Maths in 15 days
NEW DELHI March 30, 2018: Amidst suspense hanging over the dates of re-examination of cancelled CBSE class 12 Economics and Class 10 maths examinations, the Human Resource Department (HRD) Ministry on Friday announced that the Economics paper for Class 12 would be held on April 25.
Media reports said that while addressing a press conference, education secretary Anil Swarup said the board would take a decision in next 15 days if there was a need to conduct retest for Class 10 Maths exam.
“Regarding Class 10th re-examination, as the leak of question paper was restricted to Delhi and Haryana, if it at all a re-exam will happen, it will take place only in Delhi and Haryana and a decision will be taken in this regard in next 15 days. If at all a re-exam is done, it will be in July,” said Swarup.
He added that the decision was taken in the interest of the children.
The education secretary said a probe into the leak was ongoing at two levels — first, by the police and the second, an intra-departmental inquiry.
He said the government would nail the person who did it.
Earlier, six students were detained by the police in Jharkhand’s Chatra district allegedly for question paper leak.
The Delhi Police has written to Google to share details of the mail ID from which the CBSE chairperson was sent an e-mail about the mathematics paper being leaked.
