CBSE to hold AIEEE again, on May 11

May 04, 2011
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has again rescheduled the all-India engineering entrance examination (AIEEE).

A notice on the board website stated that the May 8 examination will now take place on May 11, from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm. Pune is one of the 38 centres across the country where the examination would be held.

The AIEEE, scheduled for May 1, started after two hours due to the question paper leakage in Uttar Pradesh. Hundreds of students could not write the exam as the timing clashed with the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) entrance examination.

The board later announced that examinees who could not appear for the May 1 test can re-appear on May 8.

However, CBSE has now changed the date from May 8 to May 11, as the date is clashing with other entrance examinations.

According to the details uploaded on the board website http://cbse.nic.in, candidates who missed the examination on May 1 will only be eligible to re-appear for the May 11 test. The centre and roll numbers of such candidates will remain the same.

Such candidates should register online on the CBSE website: (http://www.cbse.nic.in) by May 5. For details, call (011) 22235095 or 22246087 or 22236110, or 18002096030 or 1800117002 between 10 am and 5 pm on working days.
