New Delhi: The Supreme court bench of Justices Anil R Dave and L Nageswara Rao, on Friday rejected the plea calling for rationalisation of marks in the results of two separate examinations, held as NEET-I and II on May 1 and July 24
The petition was filed by a student from Bihar and alleged that National Entrance and Eligibility Test (NEET)-II was tougher than the earlier one and CBSE came out with a common result without “normalisation” or rationalisation of marks obtained by the medical aspirants in these two tests . Hence, it called for setting aside of the combined result of NEET-I and II on grounds of different “difficulty levels” of question papers.
However, the Supreme court bench, declined the admit to petition stating that this will open a Pandora’s box, and some aspirants might be from the successful candidates’ list of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Examination (NEET), which paves the way for admission to all private and other medical colleges across the country, reports Deccan Herald.
“We can’t help out at this stage. What you are saying is correct, but there would be lot of problems for the candidates. We agree that two examinations can’t be the same,” the bench said.
The court, while agreeing with the validity of the point of the petitioner, stated that the case at this point would only lead to further complications.
“What you are saying might be right, but we can’t do it at this stage. In order to avoid complications, we dismiss your petition,” the bench said, expressing hope that the CBSE might do it in future examinations.
