New Delhi : The CBSE class X mathematics re-test, if scheduled, will be conducted only for Delhi-NCR and Haryana in July, the government has mentioned in a press conference. HRD Ministry has announced that re-test will be taken only if the leak is found to be a large-scale. In the meantime, CBSE students today staged a protest in front of the CBSE office in the capital city Delhi.

All the confusion regarding the re-exam of class 10 CBSE should be cleared now after the announcements made by his ministry, said Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar

CBSE board has written a letter to the police, which details about the examination centres, names of staff and superintendents at the centres, bank custodians, as well as the names and contact details of bank managers who had charge of the leaked papers in Delhi and Haryana.

After the CBSE re-examination announcement came on Friday, a CBSE student from Cochin approached the Supreme Court against the reset of the Class 10 maths paper. Meanwhile, the Delhi Police have questioned over 60 people in connection with the CBSE leak case, including the administrators of over 10 WhatsApp groups on which the leaked question papers were shared.

The leaked CBSE paper, which was circulated on WhatsApp, was initially sold off for Rs 35,000, but the prices later dropped to Rs 5,000, according to media reports. It is believed that 1,000 students in Delhi may have accessed the paper.

Anil Swarup, Secretary School Education in HRD Ministry, said the decision to conduct fresh exams won't affect the date of publication of the results, which usually happens in May end. However, there was no leak of CBSE papers outside India, hence no re-exam will be held abroad.

Ever since the news of CBSE papers leak, scores of students have been protesting to express their anger over the authority and re-examination decision taken by the CBSE. As of now, the date for re-exam of class 12 economics paper has been announced. The re-test for 12th standard economics students will be taken on April 25.
