A bench of justices R K Agrawal and A M Sapre decided to take up a petition of CBSE seeking reconsideration of the Apex Court's June 15 order to hold afresh the AIPMT-2915 in four weeks after Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar mentioned the matter before it.

Kumar told the Apex Court that it is impossible to re-conduct the exam within the time frame decided by the Supreme Court.

He said that the board (CBSE) was overburdened with work of conducting seven exams simultaneously and it needed at least three months time to conduct the exam afresh.

The Supreme Court had on June 15 scrapped the AIPMT-2015 and had ordered re-conduct of the examination within four weeks.

The Apex Court had directed the re-examination in view of large-scale cheating in the test with students getting answers in the examination hall at many places.

CBSE was to declare the results of AIPMT, taken by over six lakh students, on June 5 but it was stayed by the Supreme Court.
