NEW DELHI: The CBSE on Tuesday announced that it would re-conduct the All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) for medical and dental courses on July 25.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) "decided to re-conduct the All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Test - 2015 on July 25" following Supreme Court orders on June 15 and June 19, the board said in a statement.

It added that no fresh applications would be accepted for the examination and it would be a "retest only in respect of the candidates who had applied within the stipulated time from 01/12/2014 to 31/01/2015 with requisite fee".

The Supreme Court on June 19 gave CBSE time till August 17 to conduct the exam and declare the results of AIPMT for medical and dental courses for the year 2015-16.

The court by its June 15 order had cancelled the AIPMT examination held on May 3 following the leak of the question paper and circulation of the answer keys through electronic devices across 10 states in the country, observing that the exam was rendered "futile by a handful of elements seeking to reap undue financial gain by subjecting the process to their evil manoeuvres."
