Fresh petition seeks nullification of NEET result

Fresh petition seeks nullificationThe National Entrance cum Eligibility Test (NEET) finds itself mired in fresh controversy as a petition seeking that the combined results of NEET Phase 1 and 2 be quashed has been taken up for hearing by the Supreme Court. The petition, initiated by Bihar-based medical aspirant Shivangi Singh, alleges that NEET II was tougher than NEET I and that the result was declared without normalisation of marks. And with the Supreme Court on Tuesday accepting the petition to nullify the combined results, it now leaves the future of lakhs of medical aspirants hanging in the balance.

The NEET petition contends that the declaration of results without normalising the scores of the two phases is not only illegal and unconstitutional but an affront to fundamental rights under Article 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution. The plea, which came up for urgent hearing, was heard by a bench of justices A. R. Dave and L. Nageswara Rao. The petitioner has requested the Supreme Court to direct the CBSE to quash the combined results and instead prepare a new all India merit list derived at through normalisation of NEET Phase 1 and 2 results.

The plea also appealed to the Supreme Court to appoint an independent committee of experts to determine the difficulty level of the two tests.


The combined results of NEET I and II was declared on 16 August 2016 by CBSE by using raw scores of candidates, in the process contentiously treating the papers of the two phases to be of equal weight.
