CBSE Paper Leak: Sanskrit Paper ‘Fake’


New Delhi: CBSE said that “alleged” question papers of Class 12 Political Science and Class 10 Sanskrit are being circulated on social media.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in two separate press releases said these question papers are verified to be as earlier year’s question papers.

“Students are hereby alerted not to believe or subscribe to any such sites. It is reiterated that the question papers circulating on these social media sites are either of earlier years or fake question papers,” the press release from the board said.

In the wake of the recent CBSE question paper leaks row, the Central Board of Secondary Education issued a notification, presaging students against the circulation of a fake class X Sanskrit question paper that is doing the rounds on social media.

“It has been brought to notice that a question paper of Class X – Sanskrit is being circulated on social media through Youtube link. This question paper is verified to be an earlier year’s question paper. Students are hereby alerted not to believe or subscribe to any such sites,” said a press release by the CBSE.

The leaks of class XII Economics and Class X Mathematics question papers have caused quite the ruckus, with the board having to re-schedule those two examinations, which in turn has enraged students nationwide.

The re-examination for class XII Economics has been scheduled by the board for April 25, while no confirmed date has been announced for the re-exam for class X Mathematics.
