CBSE Class 12 Maths paper leak: Students claim, Board denies

CBSE Class 12 students have alleged that the mathematics examination, which was conducted on Monday, March 14, was leaked. However, these claims have been denied by the board officials and teachers.

A student from Chakradharpur in Jharkhand said,”The question paper looked similar to the one that leaked a day before exam. He was quoted saying by HT: “After exam, some students showed an identical question paper in their phones.”

Denying the claims by the students, some teachers say that similar sample questions were released by the Board days before the exam and the students were misinterpreting it as the leaked copy.

As per media reports, other students claim that most of the questions in the leaked paper were similar to the questions in the actual paper and were written in the same sequence.

We bring before you a few cases of question paper leak, which were highlighted in the past few years:

Rajasthan University paper leaked on WhatsApp, exam cancelled: The students in the first year of B.Com Economics were in for a rude shock when Rajasthan University cancelled their exam after reports of a paper leak. The economics paper had allegedly gone viral on WhatsApp. As soon as the news spread, students from the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) union began demonstrations in the campus of Rajasthan University. The proctor of the university, MS Poonia, immediately informed the Principal of Commerce College and soon after, the university announced that the exam had been cancelled and would be held again on a date which will be announced in the future.

The students, who were asked to take the exam were thoroughly disappointed. They complained that their entire years’ efforts had gone waste. They had been eagerly waiting for the exam to be over, after which they could enjoy in a stress-free manner.

Case 2: In 2006, the police uncovered the leaked CBSE question paper of Business Studies, while it was searching for suspects related to the Varanasi bomb blasts. The police in Panipat city of Haryana searched every hotel and dhaba for information related to the blasts and instead, found the leaked papers.

Case 3: In 2011, three persons, Krishnan Raju, principal of government senior secondary school at Lapati, Rashid, an executive engineer of the Andamans PWD, and Vijayan, a forest ranger, were arrested on charges of leaking the question papers of the on-going CBSE exams. The question papers included those of Science and mathematics of Class XII.

Director General of Police (DGP), Andaman and Nicobar Islands had dismissed a radio operator MP Arun for his alleged involvement in the question paper leak scandal of the CBSE Board exams.

Case 4: In 2011, Pritam Singh, a senior official in the CBSE, was accused of making money through the AIEEE 2011 paper leak.

The Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board had conducted the examination for the post of primary teachers in MCD schools. The exam was cancelled, after Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia found out that the paper had been leaked.
