Update 1: The Second exam also delayed. Time still not certain. Uttar Pradesh STF notified of the leak. Since it was not clear which set of paper was leaked, hence the delay.
Update 2: News of paper leak in Kanpur and in Bihar as well. Frantic attempts to conduct the exam today itself. Hopefully CBSE will be able to pull this off.
UPDATE 3 - 10.38 AM: It is confirmed. Exam will be conducted today itself. Paper I to be conducted from 12 PM to 3 PM. Paper II to be conducted from 4 PM to 7 PM. Stay tuned for more updates.
UPDATE 4 - Students appearing for AFMC exam today have an option of not sitting for the AIEEE today and appear for it on the 8th of May. This is done because the timings of AFMC and AIEEE clash after the AIEEE postponement.
Several school centres in Ahmedabad and Vadodara in Gujarat witnessed protests of students and parents at around 9.30 when exam was to begin as per the schedule.
