In a circular to the heads of schools presenting candidates for the ISC semester 1 examination, the CISCE has asked for the return of the unused math question paper.
“The ISC — Semester 1 Mathematics Question Paper which is in your custody, in the Banks, will not be used for the rescheduled examination...,” the circular says.
The circular says that the mathematics question papers will have to be withdrawn from the bank and handed over to the council designated courier to be sent to the council office.
