Thousands of second-year Pre-University (PU) students who tiptoed into the exam centre for the mathematics paper on 20th March, Tuesday morning were in for a rude shock when the authorities told them that the examination had been called off following paper leak. The exam will now be held on April 3rd from 9 AM to 12.15 PM. The paper leak came to light when some TV channels reported late 19th March, Monday night that the copies of maths question paper were being hawked for sums varying from Rs 500 to a shocking Rs 10,000 on the premises of some colleges in Chintamani.Chikkaballapur police arrested two persons, Pradeep of Chintamani and V Venkatesh of a Kolar village. District police chief T. D. Pawar said “Venkatesh was in possession of question paper copies and Pradeep was looking for students to sell them”. Around 1.55 lakh students were to appear for the exam at 856 centres. The geography exam scheduled for the same day took place as planned. Getting a new date for the mathematics exam wasn’t easy: April 1 was ruled out as AIPMT exam was slated for that day; and April 2 couldn’t be considered as some SSLC exam centres would have overlapped with the PU’s hence, April 3.
CID will investigate question paper leak:Primary and secondary education minister Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri on 20th March, Tuesday ordered a CID inquiry into the Mathematics exam paper leak and promised action against the miscreants. Even hours after the paper leak, the department of PU education was in denial mode.Later, department officials secured a copy from the tahsildar around 1.30 am to confirm an hour later that it was, indeed, a replica of the original. Since the decision to postpone the exam was made in the night, the authorities told students about the cancellation at the exam centres. Sources said the paper was leaked around 4.30 PM on 20th March, Monday and sold in three private colleges in Chintamani. Lecturers allegedly tried to secure copies for their students. Later, the papers made their way to Malur and Mulbagal via photo-copying. There was a buzz that the paper was leaked online. A clueless PU department suspects that the leak may have taken place at the sub-treasury level. The question paper is printed, stored and distributed through a time tested system. After printing in a press whose name and location are kept confidential, they are taken to sub-treasury in trucks.
