New Delhi : The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has registered an FIR against alleged fake videos about CBSE question paper leak, which is now streaming on YouTube and other social media platforms. The video claims to have access to original question papers of class 12 accountancy, chemistry, English and class 10 mathematics and science papers.

In the official notice, the CBSE said, “The papers on these websites have been scrutinized and 100% have been found to be fake.” The board stated that fake information is being circulated to “thwart the good efforts of the board and to create panic and confusion among the students”

An FIR has been registered against the “unscrupulous persons” who have circulated ‘false’ video “for personal and professional gains”, according to the CBSE.

CBSE has also written to the Delhi Police to take suitable and strict action against miscreants under provisions of IPC and IT Act.

In 2018, there were reports of CBSE question papers being leaked on social media. One of the reports was later confirmed as CBSE Class 10 Mathematics and Class 12 Economics exams were leaked. Due to the leak of CBSE question papers, over 20 lakh candidates were affected.

The board had released instructions to all the students and parents to be aware of fake news regarding the paper leaks, availability of question papers prior to the examinations on various platforms including social media class 10 and class 12 board exams.

This year, the board has considered tightening its security measures. It has introduced TETRA, theory evaluation trend analysis, a system which facilitates real-time evaluation monitoring and also allows trend analysis and visualisation of scoring patterns by students in different regions, cities and across different sets.
