Giving clarification on the rumors, Union HRD Minister, Mr. Prakash Javadekar assured that there would be no change in the difficulty level and the question papers for re-exam will be set as per the standards of CBSE. The board follows a confidential and systematic process for preparing question papers, he clarified.
