Hand-written question papers were found doing rounds on WhatsApp groups before the examinations.

CBSE chairperson Anita Karwal has stated that the exams will be conducted again and the decision of re-examination is in the favour of the students. Union HRD minister Prakash Javdekar also took to Twitter to calm the students and assured them that the culprits will be nabbed soon.
