Earlier, in March, CBSE'S class X Mathematics and class XII Economics examinations were cancelled after the reports of question paper leak dropped on the internet. The Economics papers were allegedly leaked in a handwritten form before the examination on March 26.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the Class XII Economics re-examination on April 25.
However, the board had decided not to conduct a re-test for Class X Mathematics paper amidst massive uproar by a score of frustrated students, who took to streets to protest against the Board's negligence.
