I was surprised to read about the Supreme Court’s refusal to interfere in the dress code diktat of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT). Many wondered as to why would the Supreme Court interfere in a trivial issue like this?
In the wake of increased cheating in examination with the help of new gadgets, the CBSE board had issued dress code where in long sleeves, shoes, headscarves, etc. were not allowed for the students taking up the examination.
