Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said, "Congratulations to those who have succeeded. Those students who've got compartment should prepare again and I am sure they will do well."
The board exams this year were marred by controversy with question paper leaks being reported from Delhi-NCR and Jharkhand. The HRD Ministry had decided against conducting a re-examination of the Class 10 mathematics paper in the "interest of students".
This was the first batch to appear for the Class 10 board examinations after the CBSE decided to junk the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) and reintroduce the board exams. Over 16 lakh students had appeared for the Class 10 CBSE exams this year.
