The Supreme Court has refused to hear any advance request on cancellation of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), which was held on May 7, 2017. Various media channels quoting the apex court have said that for now the SC will not be entertaining any request for cancellation of the CBSE administered undergraduate medical entrance examination. The two member Bench comprising Justices L Nageshwara Rao and Navin Sinha said there was no urgency to hear the plea given that the Madras High Court had already granted an interim stay on the results declaration until June 7. They also clarified that they were not rejecting the plea, rather they felt it wasn't necessary to hear it in advance in lieu of the Madras HC's order. Earlier, a large number of candidates had demanded a re-test of NEET in the light of allegations of paper leaks and language bias in regional question papers.

NEET 2017 Controversies: What happened till now

As per an increasingly vocal number of students and education activists across the country, recent arrests made by the Bihar and Rajasthan police with regard to certain gangs attempting to leak the NEET 2017 Question Paper are not reasons for relief but only indicative of a larger rot in the system.

 

A memorandum was also published by a group of candidates protesting in Delhi against the controversies associated with NEET 2017 makes the prevalent sentiments against the exam quite clear. Describing NEET 2017 as one of ‘history’s most felonious affairs’, it reads,”Medical students and their parents are immensely outraged at the recent anomalies surfacing throughout the country…The latest reports underline the fact that the entire process has been tainted and sanctity of NEET has been breached. If such irregularities continue to prevail in such (a) prestigious examination, it will generate a sense of frustration among genuine students, with aversion to the concept of entrance exam...”

 

Not only this, the social media was also abuzz with demands for a retest as thousands of candidates are crying foul over the paper leak issue and the CBSE’s denial of these incidents. As commented by a candidate on Twitter, “NEET was a massive scam. And it is impossible to catch all the cheaters. The exam should be held again in a proper fair way.”

 

NEET 2017: Next course of actions

The NEET result 2017 are to be declared on the scheduled date of June 8, what can be said for certain is that very few of the 11 lakh candidates who appeared for the medical entrance exam will currently be in agreement with the CBSE claim of the exam being conducted ‘peacefully and smoothly across the country’.

Can i join agbsc collage by writing NEET only ??And what are the cut off marks for it???

Hi Anita,

For a B.Sc. in Agriculture, you do not need to write NEET. The admission to this course, which basically focuses on agricultural sciences, is decided on the  basis of the candidates' score in AIEEA which is conducted by  the  Indian Council of Agriculture. For eligibility to this examination, one should have passed 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Mathematics as the compulsory subjects. Some of the best colleges for Agriculture in India are:

  • Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana
  • Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbature
  • Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar

This is a four-year course and the average salary of a B.Sc. Agriculture degree holder is Rs. 6.74 LPA.

My parents are from Kerala working in UP. I am born and brought up in UP, studied xth and xiith in UP and have birth certificate from UP. is a domicile certificate needed to apply neet 85% quota in UP?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant, you don't need any domicile certificate for applying to 85% STATE QUOTA. As per the rules any student who has completed 10th and 12th from UP will not be required to provide domicile certificate during counselling.

Your 10th and 12th marksheet are proof that you are permanent resident of this state so there's no need to provide domicile certificate.

All the best

Hope this helps
