“The CBSE Class XII Mathematics paper was held on March 14, 2016.The feedback issued from various stakeholders including students, subject teachers, examiners will be placed before the committee of subject experts and the board will take remedial measures before evaluation,” the statement released by CBSE said.

Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu also raised the issue in Parliament Wednesday, saying the matter ‘deserved enquiry’ and he would discuss it with Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani.
“…Certain questions were very tough and even bright student couldn’t answer them effectively… Media said some questions were leaked and even sold,” said Naidu. “This is a matter concerning students and their future… It deserves inquiry. I will convey it to the HRD minister,” the minister added.
Students and teachers had said the paper was ‘ extraordinarily lengthy and tough’. Some one-mark questions required too much time to complete, they said. Last year, the CBSE had reviewed its math paper after receiving similar complaints.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also wrote to Irani, seeking a probe into the alleged ‘leak’ of the math paper. “…Media reports said the mathematics paper of CBSE Class XII was leaked… I request you to order a fair probe pertaining to reports of paper leak,” he said.
