While Madras High Court has already stayed all proceedings relating to the National Eligibility cum Entrance test (NEET) till June 7, another writ petition has been filed in seeking to cancel the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to MBBS and BDS courses for the academic year 2017-18.

Petitioner J Gladwin also demanded that the admission in medical courses should be based on Plus Two marks. In the plea filed recently in the Madurai bench of the court, the petitioner submitted that since the NEET examination question papers were not uniform, marks obtained in it could not be the basis for admission to MBBS and BDS courses.

The case is to be taken for hearing in the coming week. The Madurai Bench had on May 24 granted an interim stay on the publication of results of NEET across the country. With the interim stay, CBSE will not be able to release the answer keys and the NEET 2017 results.

Hearing a batch of petitions filed by some students, Justice M V Muralidharan had also directed officials of the Medical Council of India, the CBSE Director and the Union Health department to file their counter affidavits on June 7.

Students from Gujarat and West Bengal have already demanded re-test as they said the paper was allegedly difficult than English and Hindi medium. NEET 2017 was conducted in 10 languages.

    Neet Contradictory Arguments and pe the Tamil and Gujarati students.........Tamil pe iones say that neet vernacular langauge (Tamil ang Gujarati medium)paper were easy than an English while Gujarati pe ioners says that vernacular language paper means Gujarati medium paper was tough than an English......While CBSE in its reply to Madras high court has said that only two sets of question papers of same difficulty level were made for neet for English medium and the other for the all vernacular languages......means for the all Vernacular languages NEET papers were same .......then now it has been cleared that both Tamil and Gujarati pe ioner have misguided and mislead the Madras and Gujarat high court high court without the knowledge different paper sets or evaluation of the difficulty level of difficulty level of English,Tamil and Gujarati paper....there by delaying the neet results and disturbing and mentally harassing about 11 lakh meritorious students.

              Main allegation about NEET is disparity in difficulty level. It can be simply solved by normalizing the difficulty level. Major ins utions like AIIMS and JIPMER are doing this procedure for their different questions in various sessions. Many states are doing normalization with plus two marks of various board exams for other professional courses. So no need for fresh neet. Only normalization is the best solution. Dr Jaipal

                The solution to meet problem is simple. Just apply percentile for each set of question papers. So the level of difficulty is made uniform. For e.g.. if 98/100 is the first mark in one set of paper then it is 100th percentile and 85/100 is first mark in another set of paper then it is 100th percentiles.
