Madhyamik exam paper leaked in West Bengal
A school mistakenly distributed question papers of physical science, instead of history.

Kolkata: A school in West Bengal mistakenly distributed question papers of physical science, instead of history, during the ongoing Madhyamik examination, prompting the board to defer the physical science test from March 3 to March 22.

The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education has also ordered a probe into the mess-up.

Madhyamik is a centralised examination conducted by the WBBSE at the end of 10th standard of school.

According to reports, some teachers of the Dinhata school accidentally distributed the question papers of physical science.

The Telegraph newspaper in Kolkata quoted board president Anjan Sengupta as saying that "a preliminary probe has confirmed that the board had sent the correct question papers to the school. The mistake resulted from the negligence of a section of the staff of Nigamnagar Sarwaswata High School."

Teachers of the school, where students of two institutions were writing their test, denied they were at fault.

Around 10 lakh students are sitting for the 2011 exams. The board has developed a complex chain to reach question papers to the test venues.
