New Delhi, Mar 16: Several students who were appearing for class 12th exam on Monday alleged that Maths paper was already leaked.
Disappointed students from Ranchi and Dhanbad region said that many questions and their sequence were similar to a question paper which was leaked on WhatsApp on Sunday. Their parents too said that touts were found selling 51 questions and answers near exam centres.
Requesting Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to cancel the paper, students' parents reportedly mailed the board regarding the issue.
Mail which was acessed by TOI reads, "Please do the needful at the earliest. So many agents were selling the solved paper of math in the night of March 13".
However, Board and school teachers have rejected students' claim that paper was already leaked.
Earlier, CBSE students and teachers alleged that Maths paper was very very tough. Students complained that even one mark questions were very lengthy. They also demanded Board to retest the exam.
A student was quoted as saying, "Concepts such as Linear Programming and Matrices which have generally got easy questions over the years had tough questions this time. Every question was tricky, as a result of which many of us found it tough to finish the paper on time and many students, including the top scorers in schools, were crying after the exam".
