Due to the orders of the Supreme Court related to the recent paper leaks, CBSE would re-conduct the All India Pre Medical Test on July 25. The students who have applied and undergone the exams are apprehensive about the recent deadline set by CBSE as the inadequate time may hurt their chances of securing a seat in the medical institutes around the nation.
Around 6,30,000 candidates left surprised after the Supreme Court passed its sentence that due to major irregularities and paper leaks in the previous exams, that would remain scrapped. It asked CBSE to re-conduct the exam within four weeks’ time and publish results by August 17.
According to a statement issued by CBSE, “No fresh applications will be accepted for this examination and it will be a retest only in respect of the candidates who had applied within the stipulated time from 01 December 2014 to 31 January 2015 with requisite fee.
But the re-examination has left many candidates fearing admission delays affecting their academic calendar dearly. Many students are also scared of the fact that these new schedule could result in killing the options of alternatives, as most of the admission to other private colleges and medical institutions would be closed by the time the results for AIPMT would come up.
The board had earlier said the Supreme Court that it might need at least three months’ time to conduct the examination again, to which the SC gave a strong wrath saying everything is possible in this era of technology and the exams should take place in four weeks’ time.
