On Friday, the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) has informed the Delhi High Court that the decision not to carry a re-examination of the Class 10 mathematics paper was taken after doing a drift investigation of Science, Maths and English papers. According to the reports, the maths paper of Class 10 was allegedly leaked.
According to the CBSE, it was a studied judgment which has been taken. They cannot put lakhs of students in problem just for one student who wanted a re-test of Maths. A panel of Justices Gita Mittal and C Hari Shankar postured various questions to the counsel for the student. Previously the council has been seeking re-conduct of the exam.
The Delhi High court asked the counsel for the student as to what was the stress and worry about the Maths exam. They also asked that why he was asking for a fresh exam.
The panel said that, as stated in TOI, "How you client (student) is affected by the decision of not conducting a re-test. When you are asking for such a radical relief, you have to see it in an overall perspective...They have done a trend analysis of not only Maths paper but also science and English to see there are no spikes of leakage,"
Meantime the court has scheduled the matter for further hearing on July 23. Yet to be noted that the petition does not disclose one word on the unfairness caused to the student and that sometimes advocates must look at larger public interest. During the hearing, the bench said the council should call the student in the court as it needed to know why she was seeking a fresh examination.
