The announcement for the reconduct of exams -- provisionally for class 10 and across the board for class 12 -- was made by Anil Swarup, School Education Secretary at the HRD Ministry, on Friday evening.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had on Wednesday said that it will reconduct the exams for the Maths and Economics paper for class 10 and class 12, after it learnt that question papers for the two subjects were leaked on social media.
