The Union HRD minister told reporters that a new "leak-proof" system would be put in place from coming Monday onwards for conducting CBSE exams. CBSE issued a circular stating that the dates would be announced on the website in a week.

In what was a major embarrassment to the CBSE issued a statement stating "in order to uphold the sanctity of the board and in the interest of fairness to students, the board has made a decision to reconduct examinations in two papers".

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday said it will reconduct the Economics exam for Class XII and Mathematics exam for Class X following the controversy of the question papers being leaked.

According to the notice on CBSE website dates of fresh examination and other details shall be posted on the CBSE website within a week.

Similar allegations of Class X Maths examination leak on WhatsApp emerged yesterday. A CBSE paper leak has happened surely due to corruption which is highly outrageous.

Ajay Maken, the Delhi Congress chief has been a sharp critic of the ruling BJP government at the centre. Asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking to him about the issue, Javadekar said he had been given all the information.

Strampel served as dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine from 2002 until December, when he stepped down for medical reasons. The one given to Thomashow had a shorter conclusion section than the one given to Nassar, Strampel and the university.

About 36,55,691 students appeared for the Class 10 exam while 29,81,327 students appeared for the Class 12 exam.

Akanksha Sharma, 15, a Class X student from south Delhi said: "I don't know what my fault is".

The travel as well as coaching plans of many students and their families have gone haywire. The CBSE owes an explanation as to what caused it to take the drastic step.

The paper leak case is definitely the CBSE's inability to prevent malfunctions in board examinations. "Swift action must be taken, so that hard-working students don't suffer due to the negligence of CBSE", Mr Sisodia tweeted. There were also reports that the maths question paper was leaked. When some teachers found the question paper with the same questions, they were stunned and alerted the Board.

"I am not raising any questions against CBSE's efficiency but the recent leakage is unfortunate".

Students who were thorough with their NCERT Maths textbook exercises and solved examples can easily score 70+ marks out of 80 in CBSE Class 10th Maths Board exam 2018.
