The centres where the AIEEE exams were cancelled on Sunday will hold exams on May 11, the Central Board of Secondary Education sources have said.
Earlier, the CBSE had notified the centres to hold the exams along with AFMC exams on May 8. “The exam will now be held on May 11 as several entrance exams in the country, including the entrance test for selecting candidates for the undergraduate medical, dental and engineering courses in Karnataka, are falling on May 8,” an HRD ministry official said.
The re-exam, which would be taken by more than 32,000 students, was announced on Sunday after the AIEEE exams were postponed by few hours following leakage of question papers in Uttar Pradesh.
Students who had to also appear for the AFMC test could not take one of the AIEEE papers.
CBSE has already announced that the re-exam will be held at the same centre and the same admit card will be valid.
CBSE, which conducts the AIEEE exams, has in the meantime announced to set up a three-member inquiry committee to investigate the incident.
The committee will submit its report within four weeks, CBSE officials said. AIEEE question papers were leaked in Uttar Pradesh and reportedly sold for `6 lakhs, forcing CBSE to postpone the test by over two hours and provide over 12 lakh students across the country with fresh set of questions.
About 12 lakh students across the country sat for the test at over 1,600 centres in more than 80 cities on Monday. Asian Age
