A few days after the Class 10 General Science question paper was leaked, the Assamese language question paper has also been leaked. HSLC exam for all Modern Indian Language (MIL) subjects including English (IL), which was initially scheduled for March 18, 2023, will now be held on April 1, 2023.
Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu said that there were two incidents of question paper leak in Class 10 exams, which led to the cancellation of the affected exams. In response, the minister insisted that a comprehensive evaluation of the entire examination system would be done and necessary reforms would be made.
Acknowledging the existence of “loopholes in the system”, Education Minister Ranoj Pegu said the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) should identify the root causes of these issues and implement appropriate corrective actions. “We should work together to solve these problems,” he told reporters.
On Thursday evening, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma confirmed that after the General Science question paper was leaked during the Class 10 state board exams, the Assamese paper was also leaked.
Reacting to the recent reports of paper leak, the opposition Congress party has said that the incident has brought the entire matriculation examination process under scrutiny.
“Not only Assamese, every paper of HSLC exam is under scanner. CM @himantabiswa, Education Minister @ranojpeguassam should be ashamed of themselves, take responsibility for this fiasco & resign. Terrible how the @BJP4Assam government can play with the lives of lakhs of students,” the party said on Twitter.
