In a verdict that affected more than 6.3 lakh medical aspirants, the Apex Court also asked exam conducting body CBSE to conduct a re-test within four weeks.

Careers360 spoke to AIMPT aspirants to know their reaction to the SC decision.


The verdict by the Supreme Court has left AIPMT aspirants with mixed reactions. While many candidates applauded SC decision for its strictness in dealing with such unfair practice, for others the decision has brought exam anxiety and double-trouble again.

Priyam Sharma from Raipur said that a re-test will not only assure equal opportunity to all AIPMT takers, but it will also re-establish the credibility of the exam that had come under scrutiny after the answer key leak allegations. “Re-test is the best solution as genuine candidates will be selected now”, said Priyam.


Delhi aspirant Sukriti said she was praying for a re-test and the decision brings her a lot of hopes yet gain. “I had this intuition from the beginning that this exam will be cancelled. I never stopped preparing for entrances. I am very happy from the verdict. I am sure I will now be able to improve my score in the re-test.”

But some candidates feel that the AIPMT re-test will bring them exam burden again.  Reacting to the Supreme Court’s decision, AIPMT aspirant Abhinav Jha from Samstipur (Bihar) said, “It is very easy to order for the re-test but is equally difficult to put the same level of efforts and energy again.”


He added that had the authorities cancelled the AIPMT exam immediately after the exam day, it would have been easier for them keep themselves into preparation mode. “If they had to cancel it, they should have cancelled it on the very next day, as these mass copying reports were in media since then only. It’s like facing the exam anxiety all over again,” he said.

Delhi’s Omkar is not happy when with the re-test decision. “As SC had earlier said that re-conduct will be the last resort and was delaying the result date, it made me feel that they will not cancel the result. My most of the medical entrances are over and I haven’t studied from last 15 days. It’s a difficult situation for me,” said Omkar, adding, “Now, I will have to revise the entire syllabus yet again.”

Another AIPMT aspirant Akash from Amritsar said, “I don’t wish to appear for AIPMT again. My other exam results are awaited. If I get selected in AIIMS, I will definitely not appear AIPMT again. This is so frustrating to write the exam again.” He also questioned the way CBSE handled the entire process and allegations.  “There were many reports in media about the answer key leakage on the evening of May 3, 2015. Then why did CBSE release a Press Note that there was no authentication of the news and exam has been conducted successfully and smoothly?”


AIPMT Result was scheduled to be declared on June 5, 2015; but the declaration was postponed after Supreme Court ordered the delay of AIPMT Result on June 3 till June 10, 2015.


The Supreme Court had also given a week’s time to Haryana Police to trace the real beneficiaries of the mass copy. The Court wanted to eliminate these candidates from AIPMT 2015 entrance exam.


But, the Supreme Court’s decision on June 15 of cancelling the AIPMT has affected over 6.3 lakhs medical aspirants.

my fathers surname in 10th & 12th marksheet is Sudhir sharma but in my Aadhar it is Sudhir Kumar will this create problem during admission in neet.?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 23rd Feb, 2020

Dear aspirant

No this will not create any problem as aadhar is still optional in most of the cases and where it is mandatory it is not that hard checked for spelling and surnames. If you have right name in both of your marksheet then you are good to go. Just make sure to not repeat this mistake in your mbbs marksheet and continue the consistency within marksheets.

Hope this helps. Thanks.
