A vacation bench of justices R K Agrawal and Amitava Roy directed the institutions involved in conduct of the examination to render assistance to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in this endeavour within the stipulated period decided by it.

"Petitions are allowed. CBSE to hold AIPMT 2015 exam within four weeks," the bench said in its verdict.
    
The Apex Court directed the re-examination in view of large-scale cheating in the test with students getting answers in the examination hall at many places.
    
The court had reserved its order on June 12 on petitions seeking re-conduct of AIPMT 2015 for alleged large-scale irregularities in the exam which was held on May 3, saying the examination stands vitiated even if one student is being benefited illegally.

It had said that CBSE could not be held guilty as such but taking into consideration the past incidents, "CBSE ought to have been cognisant of these things".
    
CBSE was to declare the results of AIPMT, taken by over six lakh students, on June 5.
