Acting upon the Supreme Court order to re-conduct All India Pre-Medical and pre-Dental Test (AIPMT), 2015, the Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to hold the exam again on on July 25. No fresh applications have been invited and only those who took the test earlier will be able to appear on July 25. The apex court had passed the direction following allegations of large-scale irregularities in the examination held on May 3. Nearly 6.3 lakh candidates had registered for the test.
The department has also advised the candidates to make sure that their registered emails and mobile numbers are functioning properly so that they can receive the updates. The details will also be hosted on website www.aipmt.nic.in. The admission prospects of a large number of MBBS aspirants from the State have suffered a setback with the cancellation of the All India Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Entrance Test (AIPMT) and the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Medical Entrance Examination by the authorities citing irregularities.
As many as 30 students from the State had cleared the AMU entrance test held in April this year while at least 1,000 were expecting to clear the AIPMT for MBBS/BDS admissions in different States. While the authorities have ordered re-examinations in August, there is no guarantee on how many students will take the examinations for a second time.
According to observers, almost all students who take the State Medical Entrance Examinations also take the national-level entrance examinations without fail. A good number of students who secure high ranks in the State Entrance Examinations usually opt for admissions in superior medical colleges outside the State every year, clearing decks for lower-ranking students from the list to get admissions in the State medical colleges.
