No CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Re-exam: CBSE

New Delhi/Bhubaneswar: In a respite to lakhs of students, the CBSE on Tuesday decided not to conduct re-examination of Mathematics paper of Class 10.

This decision holds good even for test-takers in Delhi-NCR and Haryana, the two regions where the leak reportedly took place, Times of India reported.

The CBSE and HRD ministry officials believe that the leak will not have any impact on the overall result of the Class 10. So, it better not to hold any re-exam, TOI reported, citing a source from the board.

“If a student has done poorly in internal assessment and does exceptionally well in the main paper and this is at variance with his other papers — then we might examine the result more carefully,” said the source to TOI.

However, the re-examination for Class 12 economics paper will take place on April 25.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court will hear on Wednesday a batch of petitions challenging the board’s decision to re-conduct the Mathematics exams for Class 10 after its question paper was leaked on March 28.
