Apex Court orders declaration of NEET results 2017

Apex Court orders declaration of NEET results 2017

On Monday, the Supreme Court allowed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)  to declare the NEET results of 2017. The court stayed the order of a Madras High Court, which had put a hold on the declaration of results.

On June 9, the CBSE had moved the apex court seeking a stay on the Madras High Court order, restraining the publication of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 results for admission to MBBS and BDS courses across the country.

The order has paved way for admission to all medical colleges now.

On May 24, the Madras HC  had granted interim stay on the publication of NEET results, alleging that a uniform question paper was not given in the examination. It also alleged that there was a huge difference between English and Tamil question papers. The NEET examination was held on May 7.

 Over 10 lakh students had appeared for the exam in either Hindi or English, while around 1.25 lakh to 1.50 lakh students appeared in eight vernacular languages.
