CBSE says AIMPT retest not possible in four weeks

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.
