New Delhi: In a major verdict, the Supreme court on Monday scrapped the All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) for the year 2015-16 following the leak of its question paper and circulation of their answer keys through electronic devices at different examination centres in 10 states across the country.

The apex court vacation bench headed by Justice R.K. Agrawal while scrapping the examination directed the re-conduct of the same within four weeks.

The court also directed all the institutions to extend every cooperation in the re-conduct of the examination for the admission of students in undergraduate medical courses.

The court’s order came on a PIL and other petitions seeking the re-conduct of the examination in the wake of leak of the question paper, contending that it has compromised the integrity of the entrance test.

While directing the re-conduct of the entire test, the court rejected the CBSE contention not to scrap the test as it would effect 6.30 lakh students and also delay the admission process. (IANS)
