The Supreme Court’s has scrapped the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) after the use of deceitful means and measures during the examination. The Central Board of Secondary Education has hence been holding discussions to finalise the dates and venues to hold the test afresh.
The CBSE was instructed by the apex court judges Justice RK Agrawal and Amitava Roy to re-conduct the AIPMT within four weeks of the date of the first examination.
The students and parents anxiously waiting for any development on this case have a reason to relax. The AIPMT examination controller, KK Chaudhary, said that students who had registered for the May 3 exam will not have to apply again.
A fresh admit card will be issued by the CBSE to all the students. A final date for conducting the fresh entrance exam is being discussed upon, in the Board.
The declaration of results of the AIPMT was scheduled to be on June 5 but was marred by a paper-leak where as many as 700 students received answer keys through mobile phones during the exam held on May 3.
AIPMT is conducted every year for admissions into the medical and dental courses across universities in the country. The competitive exam offers 15 percent merit positions in medical and dental colleges all over India.
