SC Cancels AIPMT Test, Orders Fresh Exam


New Delhi: The Supreme Court has scrapped the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) for admission to undergraduate medical courses this year after its question paper was leaked. The top court has also ordered the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to conduct fresh exams within four weeks.

The order came on a clutch of petitions, including by students, seeking a re-examination, contending that the integrity of the test had been compromised. The results of the test were to be declared on June 5. Around 6.3 lakh students appeared for the exam; nearly 4,000 would have been admitted to medical colleges across India.
