Due New System of encrypted question papers CBSE Class 10 Sanskrit and Class 12 Hindi exams start late at a few centres in Delhi. The new system of printing encrypted question papers, e-mailed to them, at the school itself.The board officials, however, assured that the students would be given extra time to ensure the delay doesn’t cause them any loss.“We received (encrypted) question papers at 10 am from the bank as CBSE officials gave it late. Papers were distributed at 10.45am instead of 10.15am,” the principal of an East Delhi school said on condition of anonymity.

Another school in west Delhi started the board exam late as they received the paper at 10.30am from the bank.

This came after the CBSE, on Friday, told examination centres it would email a link to the question papers, a system it had tested the day before. It had instructed schools to ensure they can print over 2,000 sheets of paper between 7.15 am, when the email would be sent, and 10.15 am on Monday, when the students begin writing the exams. The new instructions had some government schools housing the exam centres in Delhi worried.

To execute its new plan, the board had also asked schools to arrange high-speed internet, with dongles as backup and generators. But officials say many schools said they didn’t have the resources or enough staff.

Nearly two million students are having to re-sit the finals for two subjects after the papers were leaked last week. The board has announced that Class 12 students will take an Economics re-exam on April 25. The class 10 Mathematics exam, if held at all, will be in July and only in Delhi and Haryana, said the board on Friday.
