Supreme Court has cancelled AIPMT 2015 after CBSE failed to defend Answer Key leak allegations leveled by test takers. So, what lies next for over 6 lakh aspirants of this national level entrance exam? Careers360 brings you an overview of high level of action expected around AIPMT in days to come.

1.  AIPMT Retest within four weeks

The AIPMT exam conducting body Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) will be conducting a fresh test in accordance to Supreme Court Judgment of June 15.  “We direct the Board, in the attendant of facts and circumstances to hold the examination within a period of four weeks from today,” the Court observed on June 15. This means that the AIPMT re-test will be conducted by second week of July.


2.  CBSE to announce re-test schedule:

As the AIPMT re-test has to be conducted within four weeks from June 15, CBSE will be declaring a fresh date for the exam very soon.  The fresh dates will carry the new date of admit card download and date of examination along with result dates.

3.  Fresh admit cards and new centres

Fresh Admit Cards will be issued to all AIPMT 2015 takers. A change in test center is also expected for candidates.

4.  Delay in admission cycle

With an expected delay of 2 months in the AIPMT 2015 fresh examination, the entire academic cycle will get delayed. However, the court has ordered CBSE to minimize the delay after the examination is held afresh.


Earlier, the result was scheduled to be published on June 5 followed by the first counseling of All India quota seats, to be completed by 30.6.2015 and second counseling by 8.8.2015. The academic session as per the time schedule was to commence on 1 August. Admission to the medical institutions was scheduled to close by 30 September.


Though Supreme Court observed that the abrogation of the examination, would result in some inconvenience to all concerned and that same extra time would be consumed for holding a fresh examination with renewed efforts therefor, it directed the CBSE to take the necessary follow up steps in the coordination with all other institutions involved in the admission process and space the intermediate phases in the same pattern as scheduled earlier.


5.  Competition for AIPMT may slightly come down 

As AIPMT re-test is much delayed in comparision to the normal admission cycle in medical colleges, the candidates selected through different state entrance exams and other prestigious exams like AIIMS, JIPMER are most likely to enter the final counselling and admission process by the time AIPMT results are announced. Thus, many meritorious candiates will be automatically out of the AIPMT rush. This may result in sligthly bringing down the level of competition for the national level test. 

6.  Cancellation of candidature of those involved in ‘Answer Key Leak’

A few candidates who have already been apprehended by police in AIPMT Answer Key leak case may not get a chance to appear for the re-test. CBSE has already vowed to take stringent action against such candidates and a chance for those who have already been identified is highly unlikely.

7.  Better test process and strict monitoring:

The Answer Key Leak has put CBSE in spot and its credibility is at stake now. Since Supreme Court has already intervened in the matter, the re-test for AIPMT 2015 will be conducted in a more vigilant manner. CBSE would not like to take a second chance on this. Also, it will take extra measures to brief invigilators on checking and cross-checking any sign of unfair practice that they might notice.
