The Supreme Court pulled up the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday, expressing its dissatisfaction that the board set up different questions for students attempting the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) medical entrance exam in different languages.
The apex court added that there should be a common question paper for all languages in NEET examinations.
The NEET 2017 exam, conducted on May 7, landed CBSE in controversy after allegations were made that the question papers in regional languages were more difficult than the English and Hindi language question papers.
Despite the controversy over the NEET 2017 question paper, the Supreme Court on July 15 had declined to nullify the exam conducted as it would impact more than 6 lakh candidates who had already joined professional courses based on their passing marks.
"It would be very difficult to disturb the results of NEET as around 6.11 lakh candidates, out of a total of 11.35 lakh aspirants, have cleared it and the counselling process was on," a three-judge Bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said.
The court had previously refused to accept submission of a counsel on behalf of a student that claimed that since the level of difficulty of questions in regional languages and in English was different, the exams needed to be conducted afresh.
