The re-examination of the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) conducted by the Central Board of School Education (CBSE) which was conducted on July 25, 2015. The AIPMT examination was conducted on the scheduled date of May 3, 2015. However, it was scrapped by Supreme Court on account of the question paper leaking.
Many students were distressed with the Supreme Court’s verdict of re- examination. However, the students had to follow the order. Over 26,000 candidates have re-appeared in AIPMT in 40 centers in Nagpur city alone. The same enthusiasm which the students displayed the first time round could not be seen during the re-examinations.
Nagpur Today ventured out to get the reactions and the views of some of the examinees who had appeared in the re-examinations of AIPMT. The intention of Nagpur Today was to explore how the examinees felt when they attempted the AIPMT question paper, what are their expectations about scoring marks, and also to know whether they like the revised pattern of question paper.
Yash Chandak: The examination which was conducted today was strict and much care was taken to avoid cheating. Every student was subjected to a complete physical frisking and the paper was good too. This paper was also of same level and pretty difficult. Since the decision of re-examination came very late we were in a dilemma and had to brush-up on the subjects had to go to the centre and give the exam again.
Amit Dashputre: The Paper was slightly easier than previous one. Conducting the re-examination of AIPMT was a wrong decision from the students’ point of view. The security and frisking was intensified at the exam hall.
Apurva Kelkar: Today’s exam was of the same difficulty as the one before, but time management became an issue due to lack of the same enthusiasm to practice which existed in the first time. The regulations were a bit stringent but keeping in view the recent issue it was fair.
Devashree Kadu: The gap between the main examination and the re-examination made us forget all that we studies. The time for practicing and revision was practically negligible. This is one reason that a number of students did not appear for AIPMT re-examination.
