(G.N.S) Dt. 15
On Wednesday, a question paper was doing the rounds which many claimed was the Class 12 CBSE Accountancy paper. The paper turned out to match set 2 of the paper. CBSE’s top panel will conduct a review today to determine whether the paper will be scrapped.
CBSE has denied allegations of class 12 accountancy paper leak. The Board said that there has been no question paper leak. All the seals have been found intact at all the exam centres. The Board however said, during the process of examination, however, at local level, some miscreants have tried to play mischief by circulating messages through WhatsApp and other social media to disturb the sanctity of examinations. The Board has decided to take strict action against such activities and will lodge an FIR today.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said that he has ordered an investigation into complaints that the question paper for the CBSE Class 12 accountancy paper has been leaked. Copies of the alleged question paper have reportedly been in circulation on WhatsApp since last evening. The same set of papers reportedly reached Mr Sisodia.
Mr Sisodia, who is in charge of education, tweeted that he had asked the Directorate of Education to investigate. He also said a complaint must be filed with the CBSE or Central Board of Secondary Education, which conducts the exams.
“Swift action must be taken, so that hard-working students don’t suffer due to negligence of CBSE,” he tweeted.
However, in an official statement the CBSE denied that there were any leakages saying ‘all seals have been found intact’. They claimed ‘miscreants tried to play mischief by circulating messages’.
The Class 12 board exams have been shadowed by controversies this year. There had been allegations of the Chemistry, Physics and Business Studies exam papers being leaked. CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma had refuted claims that the Chemistry paper had been revealed.
After students and teachers raised concerns about a question in Class 10 English paper, CBSE has assured that the board will look into the matter before the finalisation of marking scheme which is to be prepared for evaluation of this paper. An official from the Board told media that it will make sure that no student is put to any disadvantage because of this confusion. The question carried wrong paragraph numbers, which confused students. “The board will take care of the matter before the finalisation of marking scheme which is to be prepared for evaluation of this paper,” the official added. The CBSE exams began on 5 March.
