Ahmedabad, March 25: Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) today cancelled the Class 12 computer theory examination after its paper was found to have questions from the old course.
The examinations were held today and the board has said that re-examination will be done in first week of April. "We found that out of the 100 marks question paper for the computer theory subject of Class 12, questions of 80 marks were from the old course.
