Important notice: Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Request to Cancel NEET-UG 2017

Published On 26/05/2017

The Supreme Court has refused to hear any request on cancellation of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), which was held on May 7, 2017. A day after the Madras High Court barred the government from declaring results to the entrance examination to the country's medical colleges, NEET, the Supreme Court on Thursday declined to entertain a petition that wanted the exam to be cancelled altogether.

The Supreme Court, however, pointed that the high court had already stayed the declaration of the results of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test 2017. "If the stay is vacated, you can come. So you mention the case next week," the top court ruled.

Earlier, a large number of candidates had demanded a re-test of NEET in the light of allegations of paper leaks and language bias in regional question papers.

The petitioner had alleged that the question paper had leaked in Bihar and the question paper was different across languages, giving aspirants who appeared in some languages an edge. The exam was conducted in nine regional languages including Tamil, Bengali, and Gujarati.

NEET 2017: Madras HC stays NEET result declaration

Meanwhile, the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court has passed an interim order to stay the results of the NEET 2017. The Court made the decision with regard to a Writ Petition filed last by nine NEET aspirants from Madurai who demanded that the all India medical entrance be cancelled due to anomalies in the regional language papers.

As per the Court order, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the exam conducting body against whom the petition was filed, has now been prevented from releasing the results of NEET 2017 until June 7.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted the NEET 2017 examination at 1,900 centres across the country on May 7 for admission to the country's medical and dental colleges. About 11 lakh aspirants on Sunday had appeared for the exam. The result was due to be declared on June 8.

But there were complaints from students in many states, many of them backed by the state government, claiming that the CBSE had a different set of question papers for aspirants appearing in the exam in different languages.
