NEET Results: NEET cancellation ?
NEET results might be declared after 15th June, 2017. Although NEET results were earlier scheduled to be declared on 8th June, this definitely qualifies as a good news to the students, since the clouds of a possible NEET cancellation have cleared themselves. Although, the road from the NEET exam to the results hasn’t been a smooth one for the organisers, the results are finally being declared after the honorable Supreme Court heard CBSE’s plea and cleared them to decalre the NEET results. CBSE will be releasing the official answer key and candidate OMR on their official NEET website. Candidate must check their NEET results for updates.
Is NEET Cancellation still a possibility?
After the Apex court lifted the HC stay on results declaration, the results will finally be declared on 15th June, 2017. Here’s what all happened pertaining to NEET 2017.
A case had been filed against the CBSE that the question papers set for this exam were not uniform in all the languages. Students from the states like Gujarat and West Bengal aren’t happy with the question paper and believe that their papers were more difficult than the English and Hindi medium papers. They have demanded re-conduction of the test. In such situations, this common examination cannot be the only basis for admissions into all the colleges in the country.
A petitioner also demanded the admissions for medical courses to happen based on 12th grade results. Another writ petition seeking the cancellation of NEET was filed. After the court gave the orders on 24th May, CBSE stopped evaluating the answer sheets & there wasn’t any reply to the court for an early hearing.
One of the petitions filed by an NGO had also demanded a re-conduction of the NEET 2017. The Madras High Court had granted an interim stay on the declaration of results and a decision is to be made on the 7th of June, Wednesday.
CBSE’s Counter Plea Challenging the HC Stay on NEET results
It was only recently that the CBSE moved the HC order to the Supreme Court; filing their counter affidavit to the petitions claiming that the NEET paper was more difficult for Gujarati or Bengali medium test takers. Challenging the Madras HC stay, this is the first plea filed by CBSE regarding the case. Seeking the lift of HC stay on the NEET results declaration, CBSE also stated that the difficulty level was moderated by experts and the case claimed by petitioners did not arise in the first place. The counter plea also states that more than 90.75 % of the candidates took the exam with English as the medium of language.
CBSE’s counter affidavit worked on the Supreme court as it agreed to hear the plea on 12th June, 2017 and lifted the stay on result declaration.
This is not the first time that the future of the medical students has been left to the whims of the court & organisers. Even during the NEET 2016, there were shouts of a possible NEET cancellation. Although NEET 2016 was not cancelled, students had to wait for a very long time between the NEET exam & the results’ declaration.
The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the common entrance test for all the students interested in taking up medical/BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) courses for graduation. It is required for admissions into the government, private colleges, and other deemed universities.
NEET 2017 was held on the 7th of May this year. The Central Board of Secondary Education conducted this examination. It was an offline mode examination which was written by more than 11 lakh candidates. Many coaching institutes in the country have already released the NEET 2017 answer key. NEET has replaced All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) this year. NEET 2017 was held in English, Hindi and eight other languages like Tamil, Telugu, and Marathi etc. The Central Board of Secondary Education had previously announced that the results would be declared on the 8th of June.
The release of results is now unlikely to happen on the announced date due to a few controversies. The result date has not been clarified by the CBSE. The official answer key, which was supposed to be released on the 30th May, hasn’t been released either.
