CBSE has also announced that no fresh applications will be accepted for the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) 2015 re-test.
The re-test for All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) for admission to medical and dental courses for the year 2015-16 will be conducted on July 25, 2015, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced in a press release today.
In addition, the board has declared that the retest will be conducted for candidates who had applied for the examination within the stipulated time from December 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015 with the requisite fee. Therefore, no fresh application will be accepted for the examination.
Candidates who are appearing for the exam are advised to track the AIPMT website for details.
In the press release, the CBSE has also requested all eligible candidates appearing for the exam again to ensure their email ids and mobile numbers provided in application forms are still functioningin order to receive the updates from time to time.
In an order last week, the apex court had cancelled the AIPMT examination held on May 3, putting the future of 630,000 aspirants into uncertainty.
The exam was scrapped after it was found that the question paper was leaked and the answer keys were circulated through electronic devices to students across 10 states in the country.
Following concerns raised by aspirants and parents, the Supreme Court on Friday granted time till August 17 to the CBSE to re-conduct and announce the results of AIPMT 2015.
The board had, earlier, told the court that it needed three months to conduct the exam but the SC rejected any argument, saying everything was possible in the technology era.
Over 630,000 students appeared for the test this year. The exam was held at 1,050 centres across India for over 3,800 medical seats.
