CBSE can declare AIEEE results: HC

The AIEEE was held on two dates -- May 1 and May 11  -- following the paper leakage, and rescheduling only for those candidates who missed it due to clash of time with Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) entrance test.

“Nearly 10 lakh students have appeared for the exam. We are not going to stay the publication of the result,” the Court said.  “We are more concerned about why the leakage (of question paper) took place. Why should such a thing happen? You are only on a micro issue of rescheduling the examination,” the Court asked.

The Court, meanwhile, issued notice to National Law University on a petition alleging that rescheduling of the AIEEE had led to a number of candidates missing the law entrance examination.

In its reply, the Central Board of Secondary Examinations (CBSE) sought dismissal of the bunch of petitions including two PILs saying that it was the best judge to take care of the interest of the candidates.

It also claimed that if the examination conducting body had gone ahead with cancellation, it would have caused hardships to 97 per cent candidates who had appeared in the test on May 1.

The Bench, which was hearing a bunch of petitions including the PILs seeking cancellation of the examinations, posted the matter for further hearing on May 30.
