Higher Education Secretary Anil Swarup on Friday announced that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct a re-examination for the Class 12 Economics paper on 25 April.
The re-examination was announced after a controversy that made national headlines over an alleged question paper leak forced to cancel the exam held earlier this week.
The Class 10 Maths exam, which too was cancelled by the Board following paper leak allegations, would be re-conducted in July if required in Delhi and Haryana, the Secretary said.
Swarup further maintained that after a preliminary investigation, the leak of the Class 10 paper was restricted within Delhi and Haryana and did not effect students in other states across the country.
Close to 2.2 million students appearing for the exams were affected following Board’s decision to cancel the exams.
