The CBSE on June 6 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 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.

The petitioners have alleged that uniform question papers were not given. In Tamil Nadu, a different set of questions was given to those who opted for English and Tamil, they said claiming that the one in Tamil was easier.
Seeking vacation of the stay, the CBSE counter said the question papers had been set — at easy average and tough levels — and they had been moderated by the experts and the issue of one question being tougher than the other did not arise.

It was only experts who decided on the difficulty level of the question papers. The counter said 90.75 per cent of the students had written the examination in English and only 9.25 per cent of the students had written in vernacular languages. It also said question papers were prepared in vernacular language to ensure that there was no leakage. In case of leakage, it would be enough if re-examination was held only for 1.05 lakh students. In some cases, not even 0.03 per cent of the candidates opted for vernacular language.

Besides, the scheme of NEET examination was a single eligibility-cum-entrance test and not a single question paper test, the counter said. The stay of publication of results would jeopardise the interests of lakhs of students. There was already delay in the publication of results and it should not be delayed further, the counter said. Hence, the court should vacate the stay and enable students join the course.

The court had yesterday sought the English translation of Gujarati, Hindi and Marathi question papers of the NEET.

            Re-NEET should be conducted to do justice for all students. Otherwise alternative way should be mentioned by CBSE for 9 students who opted for vernacular language papers. It will be very foolish and injustice act if they continue to release the results.It is sad that the students selected for english paper are asking for results selfishly.

                Its time for our judicial system to change its stance on the priority of the case. 11 Laks children are waiting for the results with great anxiety, but the progress of the case is at snail pace. Such type of cases should be taken up with fast track courts or special courts. You cannot play with the students future, just for 9.25 who had written in vernacular language. I would pray to the court to solve the matter without further delay because there are 92 of the students waiting for the results with sleepless night 🙏🏻 Dr. Vara Prasad

                  I think the court which was taking an issue on neet exam 2017 was right in giving a stay on releasing the results .but the cbse. Misheld the exams goodwill by making two sets of question paper for vernacular and national language the thing was violating the article. 14 . even though cbse says that 10 lakh students future will be protected how can you benefit remaining 1 lakh students .this is going wrong in exams history in India may be thousands of people from this 1 lakh students may get into medical college s how can you justify both the category students So please follow one nation one paper .protect our Indian Cons ution . respect our amendment s
