AIEEE 2011 re-exam today

The AIEEE 2011 re-scheduled exam will be conducted on 11th May 2011. The timings of the exam are from 9.30 AM to 12.30 PM in 38 cities. The rescheduled exam will be conducted for those candidates only who could not appear on 1st May 2011. The candidature of all such candidates who appeared on 1st May 2011 and register for rescheduled examination will be summarily cancelled.
Those applied for Online Mode of Exam but could not appear because of AFMC – MBBS Exam at different Centres. They have to register online on CBSE website for appearing in re-scheduled AIEEE 2011 exam on 11th May 2011.They will have to appear for Paper/ Pen Test only.

However, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the government's decision to re-conduct the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) for candidates who could not appear in the 1 May test due to question paper leak.

The petition, filed by former Professor AP Sinha of NIT Jamshedpur, has appealed against a Delhi high court order which issued notices to the government but refused to stay its decision to re-conduct the AIEEE on 11 May, 2011."As per the scheme of the examination, two separate examinations are not envisaged at all for a single merit list based on performances. Deviations leave the process illegal, unjust, unconstitutional, arbitrary and clearly against fundamental rights of equality of all the candidates," the petition said.

The main plea before the high court was for the cancellation of the examination held on May 1 and conducting it afresh in near future providing equal opportunity to each and every candidate.The petitioner had sought stay on the government's notification dated 2 May for holding the AIEEE on 11 May for the candidates who could not take it on 1 May 2011 due to confusion arising out of the leakage of the question paper.

The petitioner has made the ministry of human resource development, the secretary of the AIEEE unit of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and its Director (Special Exams) as respondents.However, "The respondents remained silent and insensitive and are trying to cover up all the irregularities committed by proposing to hold an unprecedented second exam only for selective candidates and others on undisclosed and vague administrative grounds," states the petitioner.
