Class 10 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the Board has decided to not conduct a re-examination for class 10 Maths paper, which was leaked recently. As per ANI reports, there will be no re-examination for the CBSE Class 10 Maths paper.  Further, Anil Swarup, Secy, HRD Ministry has been quoted as saying, "Keeping in mind the paramount interest of students, CBSE has decided not to conduct class10 maths re-examination even in the states of Delhi NCR & Haryana. Hence, no re-exam for class 10"

CBSE had announced that it will hold re-test of Class 12 Economic paper on April 25, but had refrained from declaring a date for Class 10 students on the grounds that it is waiting to assess the impact of the alleged leak. It had said the Class 10 mathematics re-test, if required, would be conducted only for Delhi-NCR and Haryana in July. It led to huge public outrage after CBSE announced retests for Class 10 Maths and Class 12 Economics paper after news of paper leak surfaced.

The Delhi High Court yesterday asked the Central Board of Secondary Education about its plans, if any, to re-conduct the class 10 Maths test. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar sought information on possible re-examination for the class 10 Maths paper after CBSE said it was still ascertaining the extent of the leak before announcing the date for the fresh test. The court put the query to the secondary and higher secondary education regulator while issuing notices to the CBSE and the Centre seeking their stands on a plea for a court- monitored probe into the recent leaks of the Maths and Economics question papers of class 10 and 12, respectively.
