Petition Filed in Supreme Court Demanding NEET 2 Re-Test

It seems the row over the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2 will never come to an end. 10 days after the entrance examination was conducted, a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking re-examination over an alleged paper leak reported on July 24. As per the statement released by the Board, a total of 4,75,785 candidates registered for the exam.

The Central Board of Secondary Education conducted the NEET Phase 2 paper on Sunday, July 24 at various centres across the nation. Even after carrying out the NEET Phase II exam amidst tight security, the police arrested five people from Ramnagar and Haldwani in Uttarakhand on account of the paper having leaked. The report of paper leakage came in one night before the examination i.e. on Saturday.

The petition has been filed by a NEET aspirant who said the primary investigations carried out by the Uttarakhand police points out that five persons (one from Delhi and four from Bihar) belonging to an inter-state racket were arrested on July 23, a day before the entrance exam. The persons carried questions papers, cash, and post dated cheques of lakhs of rupees and some other documents.

A day after reports said the NEET-II question paper for admission to medical and dental courses had been ‘leaked’ in Uttarakhand, the CBSE said on Monday that the leaked paper was different from the actual question paper. The seized material was entirely different from the original question paper of NEET-II. This was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises.

AIPMT Re-test 2015

Last year, on the basis of the allegations filed regarding leakage of the paper in Haryana, the apex court ordered the Board to reconduct AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical / Pre-Dental Entrance Test) 2015.  Even then the CBSE was in denial mode but on the basis of investigation report by police, the Court directed re-examination of AIPMT 2015 within a period of four weeks.

Next What

Now if in case the petitions filed by the aspirants are accepted by the Court, will again the re-examination be conducted? Both court and CBSE has yet to issue a statement on the topic. As per preliminary reports received from across the country, more than 90 per cent candidates were present in the examination. Will the re-test be conducted at one centre where it was leaked or maybe there is something more to the depths of NEET paper leak news. We’ll find out soon but for now, Court’s decision is awaited.

  • D Dear All, My suggestion to Honorable supreme court is, test should be taken again for the students students who appeared in Neet 1 & Neet 2 and scoring 500 or more marks.
    Paper should be set with same difficulty level, in the supervision of retrd. judge, if students gets _+ 50 marks compare to there previous score, then its ok.
    if any candidate gets drastically less marks then 3rd degree treatment with the candidate should should be done and find out how he has score so much, he himself will tell the truth .
    By doing this parents of all the candidate will not indulge in such practices

  • Depending upon the police investigation findings the decision of holding re-examination is to be made and that too at the earliest possible date.

  • Inko yar paper banana bhi ni aata. Har ppr mai atleast 3 questions galat nikalte h. Nd then i dont know how. But inke paper bhi leak ho jaate hai. This is really irritating. Neet ka decision bura ni hai. But it was wrongly placed. Nd neet 2 bhi tough de dia. Ni banwane aur doctor toh pehle hi bol do.
