The Punjab and Haryana High Court on 17 June 2014 directed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to review the six questions, which are claimed to be ambiguous, in the biology section of All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) within a week.
The court has come up with this direction while hearing a petition filed by Dr Arvind Goyal of Chandigarh, saying six questions in Biology section of AIPMT 2014 had not been asked clearly. A division bench comprising Justice Rajive Bhalla and Justice Harinder Singh Sidhu passed the order to review the questions under challenge, and adjourned the case for 18 June 2014.
The petitioner, who is running a coaching centre in the city, had sought re-examination for six "erroneous and ambiguous" questions being asked in the recently concluded AIPMT examination held on 04 May 2014. He has also demanded to provide grace marks to candidates for the wrong questions, if otherwise, asking further for a fresh merit list after reviewing the ambiguous questions.
To hear on the petition, the HC asked the petitioner to present record material that would help the court understand his grievances, and hence, at the time of hearing, on Wednesday, the petitioner produced the list of six questions, explaining the ambiguity of them.
On hearing the petitioner’s explanation of the issue, the bench ruled out, "Without expressing any opinion on the legal rights of the petitioner and the CBSE, we dispose of the petition by directing the CBSE to take a decision on the contentions of the petitioner within a week".
