CBSE Class 10 Math re-exam

New Delhi: In a major relief for CBSE Class students across the country, especially in Delhi NCR and Haryana, the Central Board of Education (CBSE) said there will not be any re-exam of the Math paper as decided earlier. The important decision relieving over 16 lakh students was announced today by School Education Secretary Anil Swarup.

“Consequent to the preliminary evaluation of the impact of reportedly leaked CBSE class 10 Math paper and keeping in mind the paramount interest of students, CBSE has decided not to conduct re-examination even in the states of Delhi NCR and Haryana. Hence, no re-exam for class 10,” Swarup said on Twitter.

The CBSE had last Wednesday announced that Class 10 Mathematics paper will be re-conducted. the announcement prompted large-scale protests across India. Following the anger, Anil Swarup on Friday said the Class re-exam will be conducted only for the students of Delhi NCR and Haryana. "That too, if it is necessary based on the result of the probe."

Anil Swarup's statement triggered speculations that the government is having a second thought over re-conducting the Class 10 Maths 2018 exams. Anil Swarup's announcement today proved the speculations right.

The CBSE decision not to conduct the re-exam however has left many questions unanswered. The decision has also left irreparable damage to the reputation of one of India's largest education board.

Earlier, following the CBSE decision to re-conduct Class X Mathematic paper, there were not only wide spread anger and protest but petitions were also filed in Supreme Court and some High Courts. Appeals of boycotting the re-exam were also issued by a good number of people, including politicians.

Interestingly, the CBSE announced its decision to re-conduct the exam on March 28 hours after students returned from their exam centers. Though the CBSE did not use the words “paper leak” while announcing the re-exam it was widely believed that paper was leaked and in the night before the exam someone e-mailed the leaked paper to CBSE official.

Along with Class 10 Math, the CBSE had also announced to re-conduct Class 12 Economic paper. Class 12 students should note that, as of now and till further order, the Economics re-exam will be held on April 25 as announced by the CBSE earlier.
