New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) The CBSE on Saturday “successfully” conducted the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) for medical and dental courses after the Supreme Court cancelled the examination held on May 3 following the leak of the question paper.
“In compliance of the orders of the Supreme Court, the Central Board of Secondary Education conducted the AIPMT examination today (Saturday) successfully without any untoward incident,” the board said in a statement.
“A total of 6,32,625 candidates were registered for this examination, out of which only 4,22,859 candidates downloaded the admit card. The examination was conducted at 1,065 centres in 50 cities throughout the country and abroad,” it added.
The board said it made “strict security arrangements” to ensure fair conduct of the examination and all candidates were frisked before the test.
The apex court cancelled the May 3 examination following the leak of the question paper and circulation of the answer keys through electronic devices across 10 states.
The court, by its June 15 verdict, while cancelling the examination held on May 3, had given CBSE four weeks time to re-conduct the examination and declare the result.
