1,000 students accessed leaked CBSE papers
New Delhi - The paper leak is however confined to New Delhi only.
About 1,000 students had accessed the leaked question papers of the class 10th mathematics and class 12 economics, Delhi Police Crime Branch has said.
It added that the paper leak is however confined to New Delhi only.
According to the India Today, the date for the re-examination is expected to be announced soon by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
During the investigation, about 60 people have been questioned which also include controller examination.
Hundreds of students gathered to protest against the re-examination on Thursday at Jantar Mantar.
Holding placards, with slogans like 'Stop playing hit and trial with our lives' and 'It's not the students who need a retest, it's the system', the students rued how they have been left "traumatised" after hearing the news of re-examination.
Many students claimed that almost all the papers had been leaked a day before the examinations and demanded that if a reexamination is to be held it should be held for all the subjects.
Bhavika Yadav, a Class 10 student of St Thomas School, said, "We were shocked after hearing the news of the re-examination. Why should we suffer just because a handful of students got the leaked paper before the examination?"
Her friend, Ojasvy Chamdhok, echoed similar sentiments.
"We have been under pressure right from the beginning of the session. We were relieved after giving the exam but it was just for one-and-a-half hours that we breathed the sigh of relief. Later we learnt from various news channels that we will have to appear for a re-examination which means studying the entire syllabus again," she added.
The students said the Board should take the accountability for the paper leak.
"It is impossible that the Board was not aware of the leakage. They had been denying right from the word go the news emerged but, it seems, they had just been pretending to be in the dark about the paper leak. They should have cancelled the papers in the morning," another student said.
