Supreme Court today said NEET examination results will be declared soon. Several petitions have been filed against the “way in the NEET examination was conducted in 2017.” Students who are at the receiving end of all the controversy that encircles in all directions of NEET 2017, are not less than having panic attacks as they have gone through enough already and the havoc seems to have no outcome till now. The Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to complete the remaining steps for preparation and declaration of result and it declared a new schedule for the display of OMR sheets and answer keys. Decision of fate of almost 12 lakh students those who were looking to join the medical colleges for their further studies, is now in the hands of the Supreme Court to fulfil dreams of those who worked hard to turn their dream into reality.
The results, which were earlier scheduled to be declared on June 8, were delayed after the Madras High Court stayed the declaration on a plea citing lack of uniformity in question paper.
Apart from setting aside, the Madras HC order, the Apex Court Monday also directed other high courts to stay away from entertaining any petition on the NEET 2017.
ALLEGATIONS BY MADRAS HIGH COURT
On May 24, the Madurai bench of the Madras high court stayed any further process with regard to the NEET Result 2017 until June 7 responding to a joint written petition by a group of students from Madurai seeking cancellation of NEET 2017. Alleging the question paper set in English, Hindi and 10 other vernacular languages, including Tamil, was simpler in some states compared to others, the students sought cancellation of the examination and a re-examination. CBSE clarified that the decision to set papers in different languages was meant as a safety measure to avoid conducting the entire exam again if a paper may be leaked.
Appeared students willing to face the challenge in response of their OMR sheet and answers prepared by CBSE may do so by paying a fee of Rs. 1000 per response/per question as explained in the Information Bulletin - 2017 available on NEET website. Only online challenges within the stipulated period and with applicable fee will be considered.
