The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the CBSE to declare the result of the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to medical and dental colleges, bringing relief to more than a million students.
The Central Board of Secondary Education had on June 9 sought immediate stay on the Madras high court order that restrained it from declaring the result.
The high court’s interim order had come on a batch of pleas alleging that a uniform question paper was not given and there was a vast difference between the ones in English and in Tamil.
The Supreme Court said the result, counselling and admissions would be conditional to its decision on matter pending before it. It also asked high courts not to entertain petitions relating to NEET.
Almost 1.2 million students appeared for the exam in various languages, including English and Hindi.
