Nagpur: All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) results would be announced on June 12, 2015. The results were earlier scheduled to be declared by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on June 5.

Justice Prafulla C. Pant and Justice Amitava Roy of the Supreme Court have granted a week’s time to the Haryana Police to file a fresh status report indicating the number of beneficiaries and the extent of irregularities committed in the examination.
