Earlier, Union HRD ministry’s secretary Anil Swarup said the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will not conduct a retest of the Class 10 mathematics exams. The board had stated to conduct a probe into the paper leak allegations for class 10 mathematics exam, and then decide if there is a need for a re-test or not.
Anil Swarup, however, stated on twitter, “Consequent to the preliminary evaluation of the impact of reportedly leaked CBSE class 10 maths 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.”
While talking to Zee Business, Anil Swaroop, said about a new system, under which the next CBSE exams will be held in a safe manner. "The board is working towards including values and ethics in the existing education system. For that purpose, the new curriculum of NCERT may come up with an addition of value education in the formal education system," he added.
