Delhi: There will be no CBSE re-examination for students outside India, the CBSE has announced. Class 10 Maths re-exam will be held only in Delhi and Haryana. The re-examination for Class 12 Economics paper will be held on April 25.
Anil Swarup, Secretary School Education in Union Human Resources Development Ministry, said the CBSE Class 10 mathematics question paper was leaked only in Delhi and Haryana as there was no evidence that it was a pan-India affair.
“The leak was restricted to Delhi and Haryana, if at all a re-exam will happen, it will happen only in these states in July. A decision will be taken on this in the next 15 days,” Swarup told reporters.

On Wednesday, the CBSE announced it will hold re-examination for Grade 10 mathematics and Grade 12 economics following reports that question papers were leaked ahead of the exams.
