Declare NEET result, SC directs CBSE
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to declare National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) results.
The CBSE had approached the top court regarding the declaration of results which had been put on hold by the Madras High Court on May 24.
The CBSE can initiate the admission process, the top court said.
The top court on Monday also directed all high courts not to entertain any petition on the 2017 NEET.
The CBSE, which challenged the Madras high court’s stay last Thursday, conducts the common MBBS and BDS courses’ admission test, which this year was taken by 11.38 lakh students.
The Madras HC had on May 24 stayed the declaration of results on finding that while the NEET question papers for nearly 10.5 lakh students who took the examination in English and Hindi were same; they were different for those who appeared in the test in eight other vernacular languages.
A total of 11, 38,890 students appeared for the exam including 1,522 non-resident Indians and 613 foreign nationals. The NEET 2017 was conducted for 65,000 MBBS and 25,000 BDS seats.
