A central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) notification has said all those students who were not able to appear for the offline exam of All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) on April 29 will be able to appear for online tests on May 12, 19 and 26.
The circular also mentions that a different date can also be allotted by the CBSE to the candidate in case the seat is not available on the selected date.
The online exam that started this year has not received a good response from candidates. Hardly any candidate from different coaching centres has opted for the online test. Vaibhav Bakliwal of the Bakliwal tutorials said, “The online exams have got a very bad response this year. While it is good that candidates have been given a second chance, it is probable that the ones who decided not to sit for the exam have done so on purpose.”
