CBSE to be expected to announce fresh date for AIEEE examination

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is to be expected to announce a fresh date of exam for those students who missed the All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) on May 1. Several students had to skip the AIEEE paper as its timing clashed with the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) entrance test, after the engineering exam was delayed by two-and-a-half hours due to a paper leak on May 1. CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi had announced that students, who have missed the AIEEE, will be allowed to appear for it on May 8. However, several students brought to the board’s notice that the Karnataka combined entrance test and the Banaras Hindu University’s medical entrance test were also scheduled for May 8.

The CBSE had to postpone the exam after it was informed by the Uttar Pradesh special task force about the paper leak. After the AIEEE was rescheduled from 9.30am to noon, the AFMC test was also put off by two hours. The AFMC test, scheduled for 2.30pm on Sunday, was rescheduled to 4.30pm. But, there were no clear instructions from AIEEE authorities. So, students who wanted to take both the AIEEE and the AFMC examinations found it tough to decide which test to skip. The AIEEE centre in many cases was located far from the AFMC test centre. The AIEEE centre officials seemed totally clueless about what to tell the students and parents after the exam did not begin at its scheduled time of 9.30am.
