The Supreme Court has now agreed to hear CBSE’s plea for more time to re-conduct the All-India Pre Medical Test 2015, after the use of deceitful means and measures during the examination. The hearing is scheduled to take place tomorrow June 19.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has told the apex court that is impossible to re-conduct the exam within the time frame decided by the Supreme Court.
Asking for at least three months, Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar appealed to the bench of Justice RK Agarwal and Justice AM Sapre said that the CBSE is currently overburdened with work of conducting seven exams simultaneously.
The AIPMT 2015 results were earlier expected to be declared on June 5 but the Supreme Court ordered a stay on the declaration of results. But later, the court further postponed the dates to June 12 and June 15, reserving its verdict for tomorrow finally.
The students and parents are anxiously waiting for the SC’s judgement. In one way, the candidates who did well, will have trouble studying again and assuring whether they will get a seat in medical colleges; whereas, students are relieved that now they have a fair chance of getting a seat.
The court had rejected the CBSE’s plea to not scrap the test as it would affect as many as 6 lakh students and the process of conducting the exam would end up taking more than three-four months, which will be long after the last date of medical applications in colleges
