CBSE says AIMPT retest not possible in four weeks

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education said on Monday that it will approach the SC to seek more time to conduct AIPMT 2015, saying it is not possible to conduct the retest in four weeks.

Speaking to the Times of India, Satbir Bedi, officiating chairman, CBSE, said: "It is not feasible to conduct such an exam in a month time. We start preparation for the AIMPT from August. A minimum of seven months is needed for preparation."

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 following allegations of paper leak. The CBSE initially denied the incidents of leak. The SC also asked the police to identify as many candidates as possible who had been benefited from the alleged leak. The board was scheduled to declare the results on June 5, which the SC stayed. On June 15th , the court asked CBSE to hold the retest within four weeks while canceling the test held on May 3.

According to Bedi, the board will meet and decide the future course of action, while out rightly saying that retest in four weeks is not possible. "The board will explain to the court that more time will be needed to conduct the exam." According to sources in AIMPT cell in CBSE, the earliest the board can conduct the exam will be in November 2015.
