CBSE warns against fake letter on social media about Class 10 board maths exam

NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday warned students, parents and teachers about a fake letter that is widely being circulated on the social media. To get the latest updates, students should visit CBSE's official website - cbse.nic.in

The letter is being circulated in the name and style of Controller Examinations CBSE. The board issued a statement advising the students to ignore the latter, reported news agency ANI.

"It is come to notice of board that certain miscreants active on social media are trying to mislead students, parents and teachers by circulating a fake letter in the name and style of Controller Examinations CBSE. All are advised to ignore this fake letter," CBSE said.

The CBSE has been under the scanner since the leak of exam question papers. A day before the Class 10 Mathematics exam, that is March 27, the board received an e-mail claiming that the paper had been leaked.

The police too got a call in the control room about the alleged paper leak on the same day. Later, on its official website - cbse.nic.in - the board announced its decision to reconduct Maths and Economics paper.

The board has already been battling the blowback after it confirmed that the question papers for Class 12 Economics and Class 10 Mathematics had been leaked. It was forced to order a retest for Class 12 Economics on April 25 across the country. The Class 10 students, however, caught a lucky break from taking their Mathematics exam again.

The Class 12 Economics exam had been held on March 26, while the Class 10 Mathematics exam was on March 28.

Special investigations have been launched into the leaks, and police have identified the whistleblower who had raised the issue in an email to the CBSE. Police have also questioned over 60 people - students as well as coaching centre staff - in connection with the leak.

For any assistance, students are suggested to visit the board's official portal - cbse.nic.in
