CBSE seeks vacation of stay on NEET results

The CBSE on Tuesday denied in the Madras High Court that vernacular question papers for NEET 2017 for admission to MBBS and BDS courses were easier than the papers in English.

In its counter affidavit to petitions seeking cancellation of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) held
recently citing alleged non-uniformity in the exam, the CBSE rejected the contention that question papers in vernacular languages such as Gujarati were easier compared to English.

In an interim order on the petitions, Justice M V Muralidharan had on May 24 stayed the publication of the NEET results and directed officials of the Medical Council of India, the CBSE director and the Union health ministry to file their counter affidavits.

Papers not uniform
The petitioners have alleged that uniform question papers were not given. In Tamil Nadu, a different set of questions were given to those who opted for English and Tamil, they said, claiming that the one in Tamil was easier.
