As per sources it is believed that Delhi High Court has given notice to CBSE on Thursday (05 May 2011) on AIEEE paper leakage in Lucknow on Sunday. The notice was concerned about scrapping the AIEEE 2011, which was conducted after a 3 hr delay for all the students who were able to take the exam on Sunday. Students unable to take the exam were those whose center was also an examination center for AFMC Entrance Examination which was scheduled on the same day (Sunday).
The Court after hearing the Public Interest Litigation felt that AIEEE held on Sunday should be scrapped and all the 12 Lakh Students should be conducted a Re Test. The court has asked the nodal agency conducting AIEEE to respond by May 18 2011, while the retest was already scheduled to be held on May 11 2011.
Parents of the students are concerned over allowing some students to take AIEEE instead of allowing every one, many parents felt it is unfair to allow some students to take the exam on a later day which allows extra time to prepare for the re test takers.
One of the respondent for our previous post has said this:
“Re examination of AIEEE for some candidates will be discrimination for those who appeared on 1st May. At Bhubaneswar there was thunder storm in the evening and power cuts. Those who appeared for B.Arch. had to struggle with day-long fatigue, bad weather, bad light while sitting for exam till 7 PM (unlike western part of India, in East it is dark at 5.30. On 1st May at Bhubaneswar it was dark even earlier due to the thunder storm and rain.). Keeping these in mind the AIEEE should be held again for all concerned”.
So is it a good idea to have a retest for every body? We will keep you updated watch out this space for more! If you are in know of any updated information on AIEEE 2011 retest please share with us through the commenting system.
But for now the updated information is that AIEEE 2011 for re test takers will be held on May 11 2011.
