NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has reserved its order on the plea by the students that the All India Pre-Medical Test, 2015, be held afresh following alleged irregularities, even as it observed that even a single entry through illegal means would vitiate the sanctity of the examination.
A Vacation Bench of Justice R K Agrawal and Justice Amitava Roy said, “You (CBSE) have been outwitted and outmanoeuvred by those using electronic gadgets. Even if a single person is the beneficiary of his illegal labour, the sanctity of the examination cannot be sustained.”
Solicitor General (SG) Ranjit Kumar, appearing for the CBSE, opposed the contention seeking cancellation of the test, saying “6.3 lakh students cannot be made to take the exam afresh when only 44 students have been found involved in taking benefits through unfair means”.
The court is likely to pronounce its order on Monday.
