New Delhi, Apr 6: In what could be understood as a massive blow to thousands of CBSE class 12 students, the board has reportedly decided not to conduct a re-examination of the alleged leaked Maths paper.
CBSE has now junked the reports that it has decided a re-examination and claimed fake circular were being circulated to misguide the students.
Some fake circular went viral on social media, claiming that the CBSE will conduct Maths examination on May 1.
The only information about the Class XII Maths Examination which exists on CBSE website (cbse.nic.in) says,
"The CBSE class XII mathematics paper was held on March 14, 2016. The feedback received from various stakeholders including students, subject teachers, examiners will be placed before the committee of subject experts and the board will take remedial measures before evaluation."
Earlier, on March 16, the Centre favoured a probe into the reported leakage of a CBSE Class XII examination paper and suggestions that the questions were rather difficult for the students, after members from several parties raised the issue in the Lok Sabha.
NK Premchandran (RSP) and KC Venugopal (Congress) said most questions of the mathematics paper were "very difficult" and out of syllabus, while referring to media reports that claimed that the questions were leaked in the Patna region.
While even many bright students in southern India found the questions very tough, on the other hand they were leaked in north India, Venugopal said, alleging that there was a conspiracy behind it and the HRD ministry should intervene.
Disappointed students from Ranchi and Dhanbad region had then said that several questions and their sequence were similar to a question paper which was leaked on WhatsApp on March 16. Their parents too said that touts were found selling 51 questions and answers near exam centres.
Thousands of students and parents are since then demanding for a re-examination.
