CBSE said it is “infeasible” to hold re-exams of AIPMT-2015 in four weeks. They further said that they need at least three months of time period to conduct fresh AIPMT-2015 exams. The apex court vacation bench headed by a bench of Justices R. K. Agrawal and A. M. Sapre hears CBSE plea about AIPMT-2015 re-exam on Friday and decided to take up the petition of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) after Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar mentioned the matter before it.

On June 15th the apex court has cancelled the examination held on May 3 and had ordered re-conduct of the examination within four week time period and declare the result.

The apex court had directed the CBSE to re-exam of AIPMT 2015 in view of large-scale cheating in the test with students getting answers in the examination hall at many places.

The court had cancelled the AIPMT examination following the leak of the question paper and circulation of the answer keys through electronic devices across 10 states in the country.

It had said that CBSE could not be held guilty as such but taking into consideration the past incidents, “CBSE ought to have been cognisant of these things”.

CBSE, however, had opposed the contentions seeking cancellation of the test, saying, “Approximately 7 lakh students cannot be made to take the exam afresh when only fourty four (44) students have been found involved in taking benefits through unfair means (UFM).”

Earlier, the apex court vacation bench had asked Haryana Police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the all India pre-medical examination (AIPMT-2015).

It had also asked police to identify as many candidates as possible who had been involved and took the benefit from the alleged AIPMT 2015 paper leak.

CBSE was to declare the results of AIPMT, taken by over seven lakh appeared candidates, on June 5.

The apex court had said, “The bigger issue is that the sanctity of the examination is under suspicion. We want to be doubly sure that there is no alternative but to order re-conduct of the exam,” adding that it did not want to take a decision “in haste”.
