The Supreme Court (SC) has been old by CBSE that it is not possible to re-conduct All India Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Entrance Test (AIPMT) within a month as directed by the apex court. It has sought three months time to hold the test. Over 630,000 students will have to take the All-India Pre-Medical Test afresh.
The SC cancelled this year’s AIPMT after finding out about tech-savvy students who cheated in the examination by getting answers to questions through electronic devices they smuggled into test centres across the country.
It may be mentioned that an estimated six lakh students had appeared for the examination at 1,050 centres. After it was confirmed that a section of students had smuggled electronic devices into exam centres across the country to get answers, the Supreme Court (SC) cancelled the entrance test and asked the CBSE to hold a fresh examination within four weeks. The SC has taken serious note of a confidential report submitted by the Rohtak superintendent of police in its verdict.
The links of the scam regarding cases of cheating in the AIPMT Test have been found in Nagpur, Nashik and Gondia. Recently, the country’s apex court scrapped the All India Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Entrance Test following the cases of cheating.
