CBSE to move SC over Pre Medical Test

New Delhi, June 18: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has said that it will approach the Supreme Court to seek more time to conduct AIPMT 2015, saying it is not possible to conduct the retest in four weeks.

The SC had on Monday cancelled the AIPMT 2015 and ordered CBSE to hold the retest within four weeks after alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examination following allegations of paper leak.

The board said that it will move the apex court to explain that the test-preparation for AIPMT takes seven months.Earlier, the SC bench had asked Haryana police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examination.

Over 6.3 lakhs took the test conducted by CBSE on May 3, 2015. The board was scheduled to declare the results on June 5, which the SC stayed.
