On Madras High Court’s decision to restrain the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) from announcing the NEET results, CBSE has now moved the Supreme Court challenging the Madras High Court order. However, the SC will hear the matter on Monday.
CBSE sought for SC to lift the stay of the order on the declaration of results passed by the Madurai Bench. It also sought transfer of matter from Madras and Gujarat High Court to Supreme Court.
In accordance with an amendment made last year to the Indian Medical Council Act of 1956, this year, CBSE conducted NEET in English, Hindi and eight other vernacular languages. Two different sets of question papers were administered: One in English and Hindi and another in eight different vernacular languages.
However, the petitioners claimed that the question paper in English was tougher than the regional languages one.
This year, CBSE was also conducting All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) for admission in 15% MBBS/BDS seats in government medical/dental colleges throughout the country except for Andhra Pradesh?Telangana and Jammu and Kashmir.
