Imphal, March 07, 2014
Two days after an Imphal based newspaper (Hueiyen Lanpao) carried a report of leaking three sets of Physics question papers of the ongoing All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (AISSCE) 2014 conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the CBSE is all set to conduct re-examination of Physics in all the examination centres in Manipur on April 2 this year.

“Due to administrative reasons, it has been decided to cancel the examination in Physics for AISSCE 2014 held in the centres situated in the state of Manipur”, says CBSE’s Controller of Examination MC Sharma in a notification on Friday. “It has been decided to conduct re-examination of Physics in respect of all centres of Manipur.”

The re-examination of Physics would be held on Wednesday (April 2) from 10.30am to 1.30pm.

The said “leaked out” question papers were sold for Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 5,000 prior to its examination day (March 5) in Manipur, reports Hueiyen Lanpao.

But the state government remained silent untill the Democratic Students' Alliance of Manipur came out with a statement demanding to cancel the physics paper examination and announce it as invalidated.

Manipur’s Education minister Moirangthem Okendra convened a meeting of the state educanists including the key functionaries of the Board of Secondary Education Manipur and Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur on Thursday and discussed to formulate a monitoring policy for the CBSE affiliated schools in the state.

Expressing the need to review and re-examine the functioning of the CBSE affiliated schools here, Okendra phoned CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi and asked to re-conduct the Physics paper examination.
