According to reports, the paper had been leaked on social media hours before the exam.

.

For Class 12 students, the rescheduling means the exam dates will come too close to their college entrance tests.

The board's circular is rather cryptic, as it does not mention "paper leak" anywhere.

In what was a major embarrassment to the CBSE issued a statement stating "in order to uphold the sanctity of the board and in the interest of fairness to students, the board has chose to reconduct examinations in two papers". The CBSEwill announce the new dates for the exams on its website cbse.nic.in later.

Earlier, there were reports that the Accountancy exam paper of Class 12th had been leaked on WhatsApp. As the government scrambled to gather facts, the initial investigation has indicated that the leak may be the handiwork of a gang working in cahoots with individuals at a particular paper bank and a few schools. The leaked question paper left teachers shocked as the original question paper had same questions as in the leaked version. The Delhi police are probing the alleged paper leak.

"The source of the circulation of this information is not known yet", the board had said.

CBSE Class 12 Economics students were shocked to know that the board has now made a decision to re-conduct the Economics exam when they have to prepare for the entrance exam which begins from April.

Raining the issue of the paper leak in the Delhi Assembly, AAP's Alka Lamba said: "The Prime Minister gave big lectures to the students on the examination but the students are suffering as they will have to reappear". "When the board is conducting a national-level examination, how can they be so careless?"

A student of Sardar Patel School in Delhi, Ojas, charged the board with acting like an "absolute authority" and felt "completely helpless" at the situation. "I don't know what these people gain by making all the other students suffer by paper leakage", Rakhi added. Many questions in this leaked paper were actually the same that appeared in the board examination.

Students, who had walked out of examination centres with smiles and relief of the exams getting over, will now have to get back to preparations for re-examination of these two subjects.
