New Dehi: The Class 12 re-exam for the economics paper will be held on 25 April but a decision on the re-exam for the Class 10 math paper will be held later, Union Education Secretary Anil Swarup announced today.
“Regarding Class 10th re-examination, as leak was restricted to Delhi and Haryana, if it at all a re-exam will happen, it will happen only in Delhi and Haryana and a decision will be taken on this in next 15 days. If at all a re-exam is done, it will be in July,” Mr Swarup said.
There will be no re-examination for Non-Resident Indians or NRI students, he said.
“Our immediate concern is the children who have suffered and this decision is in that context. We will nail the person who did this,” Mr Swarup said.
The CBSE or Central Board of Secondary Education had decided to conduct re-exams for the Class 10 mathematics paper and Class 12 economics paper after it had received information about paper leaks.
The CBSE had received an anonymous fax on March 23, which alerted it to the possibility that the paper for the Class 12 Economics exam three days later may have been leaked. The fax, which was from an unknown source, alleged that a coaching centre and two schools were involved in leaking the exam paper.
