New Delhi: The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) results for medical and dental courses for the year 2015-16 are likely to be declared by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday.

Citing massive irregularities and paper leak, the Supreme Court, while quashing on June 15 the AIPMT-2015, had earlier asked the CBSE to re-conduct the exam.

The Supreme 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.

Earlier, the court had said that 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 cognizant of these things".

The CBSE, however, had opposed the contentions seeking cancellation of the test, saying, "6.3 lakh students cannot be made to take the exam afresh when only 44 students have been found involved in taking benefits through unfair means."

Earlier, the vacation bench had asked the Haryana Police to file a fresh report indicating the number of beneficiaries of the alleged irregularities in the pre-medical examination.

It had also asked the police to identify as many candidates as possible who had been benefited from the alleged leak.

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.

The court had said, "The bigger issue is that the sanctity of the examination is under suspicion. We want to be doubly sure that there is no alternative but to order re-conduct of the exam," adding that it did not want to take a decision "in haste".
