The Gujarat High Court on June 5 allowed a group of candidates who appeared in the NEET in English medium to join as respondents in a petition seeking to hold afresh the entrance test with an uniform set of questions for Gujarati and English medium students. The matter will be heard today as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which conducted the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test, sought time to file reply.

Students who had appeared for the NEET in English medium filed an application to join as respondents, which was allowed by the Justice S G Shah. They contended that any decision to cancel the test will have an adverse effect on them and hence they should also be heard by the court.

They said that questions asked to candidates who opted for Gujarati as their medium were almost different and were difficult from questions asked to English medium students.

They said that the same set of questions should be asked to all the candidates because the merit list prepared by the CBSE will be common for all candidates. The NEET is a test for admission to medical and dental colleges, and this year, the CBSE held the test in 10 languages.
