CBSE class 12 math exam 2016: Board sets up committee of subject experts

New Delhi: Following complaints of “difficult and lengthy” math paper pattern, the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) has set up a committee of subject experts to look into the matter.

On March 16, the CBSE had said in a circular that the feedback received from various stakeholders would be placed before the committee for remedial measures before evaluation.

This year's class 12 mathematics paper on March 14 had received a lot of flak from students, teachers and parents over its “difficult and lengthy” pattern.

An online petition launched by a student from Guwahati, calling for a lenient evaluation, garnered some 11,000 signatures, India Today reported.

Some students had even alleged that the paper was leaked but the board has rejected the claims.
