  • Question leakage, whether one or 123, signifies that unfairmeans or malpractices take place in this examination. On this basis, this examination must be re conducted in appropriate honest environment so that dishonest beneficiaries could not be taken advantage from the last examination and real students could be selected.

    • appreciate your sentiments, but what is the surety that reexam with more than 6 lakh students will be free from unfair means.

  • What’s the guarantee that re-exam will be fair considering that 6 lakh students are appearing. Catch hold of the culprits and eliminate them. If retest is to be conducted, then take the top rankers 10,000 approx and exams should be conducted in metro cities only. Definitely not in states which have their own history of unfair means and mass copying.. It will ensure natural justice

    • Vinit,
      I agree with you on some terms here. But the perspective is, re-examination will be big step when 6 lakh students are involved. It involves too much work, to conduct exam again and in most cases, it will not be beneficial for the ones who already had given their best.
      Protesters for re-exam are those who wish to get a second chance, who couldn’t perform well and fear their results. I do not resent the feelings of those who actually feel betrayed.

      • Yes, it will be very difficult to conduct the exam smoothly at a short notice for over six lakh students. It would be a good idea for cbse to conduct exam in 2 stages, for second stage, number of centres should be restricted, and number of candidates should be below 10 thousand. Also test centres should be in metro cities under tight surveillance. The cheats won’t even dare to participate.
        It would

        • Hello Vinit,
          Government is urging to re-conduct the examination, but Supreme court takes it as last resort and that too, if the police and CBI could produce enough evidence. Meanwhile, CBSE seems to be unaffected by any of the hiatus, results are awaited by 5th June and counselling will follow.
          Its hard to say where is any of this is leading. Lets wait and watch.
          Thanks for dropping by.

        • law of the land should catch up fast. They have the mobile numbers (even though fake IDs were used for obtaining these sim cards) to whom calls were made by the gang members. these calls can be traced to exam centre and they can tally the omr of students with the answer keys circulated by cheats. where there is a will, there is a way. catch them fast.
