Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on Friday, May 29 cancelled AMU medical exam 2015 after recommendation of a special committee formed to probe into reported irregularities in the MBBS and BDS entrance examination held on April 26, 2015. The enquiry committee has, further, ordered a re- examination in the first week of August.

The decision was taken by V-C lieutenant general (retired) Zameer Uddin Shah after doubts were raised on a large number of candidates qualifying in the written test from a particular test centre in South India.

Prof. Javaid Akhtar, Controller of the examination at AMU confirmed to Careers360 that the MBBS and BDS exams stand cancelled following a probe by the enquiry committee. “We found certain irregularities while evaluating the results of the examination which were immediately taken into account.  As of now, the committee has decided that exam will be held by August first week. We will issue a release on the same shortly,” Prof Akhtar said.

The cancellation of AMU medical entrance test 2015 has left uncertain the fate of over 50,000 candidates who had appeared in the AMU Medical admission test in 11 centres across the country. AMU offers a total of 180 seats under both Undergraduate Medical and dental programmes.

Suspicion of mass copying was raised when more than 30 candidates belonging to a particular test centre in Kozikhode, in Kerala cleared the AMU Medical 2015 entrance exam. Prof. Javaid Akhtar also said there were other inconsistencies in the result. “Hi-tech internet applications could have been used by some candidates at a particular centre for solving the entrance test paper. While evaluating the exam results, we discovered the problem and addressed it to the vice-chancellor to look into it,” he added.

After the AMU Medical exam was held on April 26, exam officials had also accepted more that 10 wrong question in the exam paper. The test paper carried a total of 200 questions.

The AMU Medical Result was scheduled to be published in the first week of June, 2015.
