NEET 2017 & Supreme Court: Requesting the High Courts to not consider petitions on issues relating to National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) 2017, the Supreme Court had earlier ordered Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to move forward with declaration of results of NEET 2017. Bearing in mind the fortune of about 12 lakh students ( around 10.5 lakh giving exam in either Hindi or English and around 1.25 lakh to 1.5 lakh appearing in eight vernacular languages) and prayer raised by CBSE to release the NEET 2017 results on time, the apex court put a stay on interim order of 24 May passed by Madurai Bench of Madras High Court which had restrained the CBSE from declaration of the results of NEET 2017 for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses by saying “High Courts shouldn’t have interfered as it affects the schedule of the admission”.
The NEET examination for admission to undergraduate medical and dental courses was held on May 7. Petitioners (medical aspirants) alleged before the High Court that uniform question paper was not distributed in the examination, following with discrepancy in question papers for Tamil and English medium students. Consequently the High Court had ordered interim stay on the publication of NEET results.
Due to several petitions being filed in the High courts, parents of medical aspirants have insisted the CBSE not to re-conduct the examination. They have even sent representations to CBSE regarding this titled as “Finding a solution to equalize the scores if required of various papers of NEET UG 2017, so that it is not re-conducted and the results be declared expeditiously”.
After this CBSE knocked the door of the Supreme Court on June 9 pleading that the High Court’s order has stalled the entire schedule of counseling and subsequent admission for medical courses through NEET, which has already been fixed by the this court. Additional solicitor general Maninder Singh sought a pressing hearing on the CBSE’s appeal before a Supreme Court bench. He said that a delay in declaring the NEET results would create anxiety among a vast section of the medical aspirants. Mr. Singh also argued that though questions were different but the level of difficulty cannot be said to be different as they were already examined by the experts.
A Vacation Bench comprising of Justice P.C. Pant and Justice Deepak Gupta also ordered the concerned authorities to move forward with the counseling and admission process as per the schedule fixed by it earlier, but subjecting the results and admission procedure to its ultimate decision. The results were in fact scheduled to be declared on 8 June.
