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.
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 taken later, Union Education Secretary Anil Swarup announced in New Delhi today.
However, there will be no re-examination for Non-Resident Indians or NRI students. “Our information is that there is no lead outside India, so there will be no exams outside India,” Mr Swarup said.
“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,” he said.
“Our immediate concern is that the children of this country should not suffer unnecessarily. The decision we have taken is in their interest but this does not mean the inquiry will end,” Mr Swarup added.
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.
