CBSE to make NEET common question paper in all languages

Centre’s perpetual silence on NEET row leaves fate of Tamil Nadu students in the dark

Supreme Court rapped Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for setting different questions for students who took NEET - the national level medical examination - in regional languages.

Observing that there must be a common paper for NEET examinations, the top court ordered the CBSE and Centre to file an affidavit stating that from next year onwards identical questions will have to be set irrespective of language.

The court has now asked the Centre to file an application stating that NEET exams will have identical questions in the future.

Senior Advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for the petitioner, cited data to show that the ratio between number of students who wrote NEET in English/Hindi and vernacular languages and equivalent ratio with respect to the students who qualified, was different. The board has already rejected claims that there is any variation in the question papers in a previous hearing. Earlier, the results publication was stayed by Madras High Court for hard and different questions in Tamil language. "We want you to consult experts and file an affidavit as to how you (CBSE) are going to implement uniformity in standards".

Singh admitted the discrepancy but said the difficulty level was the same.

ASG Singh said over six lakh students had passed the NEET and any disturbance at this stage would cause a huge problem for students in the admission process. The set of questions for Hindi, English and other regional languages should not be different.

In a brief order the Bench directed the CBSE to conduct the 2018 NEET without any ambiguity in question papers in English, Hindi and regional languages.

The court slated the hearing for October 10.

NEET 2017 was held on May 7 and candidates appeared in Gujarati, Tamil and Bengali language complained over the difficulty level.
