CBSE had conducted Maths exam of Class 12 Board Exam on 14th of March 2016. The students as well as few educational experts felt that the question paper was too lengthy. Students already signed petition claiming that a lenient evaluation must be done by the board.
Now another controversy arose about the CBSE Class 12 Maths exam as students who appeared for the exam from CBSE Patna region have alleged that the Mathematics question paper of Class 12 board exam were leaked on WhatsApp a day before the exam.
These students also asserted that the Maths questions and answers were being sold near the exam centers on Sunday i.e. on 13th of March, just a day prior to the examination.
CBSE had denied any such allegations based on the fact that only two question which were supposedly leaked happened to be matched with the actual question paper and thus cannot be considered as a leak.
CBSE officials are claiming that this tally of questions can be a coincidence as prediction of questions are highly based on various sample papers available.
Though parents from Ranchi and Dhanbad (Patna region) are alleging that question papers were leaked as 51 solved questions were circulated via WhatsApp, 12 hours prior to the exam and touts were selling similar sets of question papers across Dhanbad. They are now demanding a re-exam for the Class 12 Maths exam to be conducted by the CBSE board.
Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu stated that the accuracy of this whole controversy has to be inquired well before jumping to any conclusion. He ensured that he’ll convey the whole matter to the HRD minister Smriti Irani.
As per news sources, Mr. Naidu said, “There are two issues here. Certain questions were very tough and even bright student couldn’t answer them effectively… Media said some questions were leaked and even sold. This is a matter concerning students and their future… It deserves inquiry. I will convey it to HRD minister.”
Already students are worried as the Maths board question paper this year was too tough and lengthy. Even the short questions were too time taking. Students are already demanding re-exam due to this. Within 48 hours of the Maths exam, a couple of thousands petitions are signed by the students to support this campaign.
