The All India Pre Medical Test was conducted by the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) with strict order from the Central Government in terms of the security and facilities for the students.
The students underwent strict frisking by metal detectors introduced by the government after malpractices were found to be taking place at the exam centres.
The heat did not prove to be a hindrance in the number of students attending the exam. The Board made sure not to indulge in the ethical and religious beliefs of the students, in terms of wearing the head cover for Muslims, as it was the controversy that was blazing the same time last year.
The students were provided with drinking water once they were settled in their respective allotted classes.
The Regional Officer of the Education Board visited the exam centres along with other officers in order to make sure evaluate the security and the exam writing facilities.
The parents seem to be under stress, a degree probably higher than that of the students writing the exam.
With the Invalidation of the State level entrance exams specially in Kerala, the students look forward for grabbing a medical seat anywhere across the country through national level entrance exam, which will be conducted in two stages, 1) The AIPMT, would be renamed as NEET-1, conducted today and the second step to entrance would be on July 24th.
