The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea filled by a group of students, alleging that there were some wrong questions set in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG 2019) examination.
Four Hyderabad-based students — Kayathi Mohan Reddy and three others filled petition through advocate Mahfooz Nazki where they alleged that four questions were out of NCERT syllabus in the NEET exam.
A vacation bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and Ajay Rastogi has agreed to hear the case on Friday after the lawyer for the students mentioned the matter for urgent hearing.
The plea said, “The respondents have not only failed to rectify the defects/errors in the question papers but have also refused to accept any representations sought to be made by the petitioners in respect of the revised key. The whole process is, therefore vitiated and is liable to be set aside”.
Formerly called the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT), the exam is conducted across country for the students who wish to study graduate and postgraduate medical courses (MBBS, MD, MS) and dental courses (BDS, MDS) in government or private medical colleges and dental colleges in India.
