The Supreme Court has accepted CBSE's plea seeking more time to re-conduct All India Pre Medical Test 2015. The Court has also directed CBSE to declare the results by August 17. 

CBSE had informed the Supreme Court that it will be "impossible" for it to re-conduct the scrapped exam in four weeks as directed by the apex court. 

The Supreme Court on June 15 scrapped the AIPMT-2015 and had ordered CBSE to re-conduct the examination within four weeks. The apex court had directed the re-examination in view of large-scale cheating in the test with students getting answers in the examination hall at many places.

Earlier, while reserving its order on June 12, the court had said the examination stands vitiated even if one student is being benefited illegally. It had said that

CBSE cannot be held guilty, but taking into consideration the past incidents, "CBSE ought to have been cognisant of these things".

CBSE, however, had opposed the contentions seeking cancellation of the test, saying, "6.3 lakh students cannot be made to take the exam afresh when only 44 students have been found involved in taking benefits through unfair means."

Earlier, the vacation bench had asked Haryana Police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examination. It had also asked police to identify as many candidates as possible who had been benefited from the alleged leak.

CBSE was to declare the results of AIPMT, taken by over six lakh students, on June 5, but the Supreme Court had stayed it.
