Supreme Court revokes Bombay High Court order to re-conduct NEET exam for two students

Supreme Court turned down the decision of Bombay High Court for conducting re-examination of National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for just two students after the Center intervened into the matter saying it will be a pattern.

New Delhi: Supreme Court turned down the decision of Bombay High Court for conducting re-examination of National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for just two students after the Center intervened into the matter saying it will be a pattern.

The Centre challenged the High Court’s decision in Supreme Court arguing that every year students will come forward and seek a re-exam for one mistake or the other. 

Justice LN Rao, Supreme Court judge said, ‘We feel sorry for the students and sympathise with them but cannot hold a re-examination.’

On October 20, Bombay High Court made the judgement in the favor of two 19-year-olds (Vaishnavi Bhopale and Abhishek Kapse) who approached to the court seeking for the re-examination. 

The duo told the high court that they were given mismatched test booklets and answer sheets in their Solapur’s exam centre. On complaining against the blunder, they were not provided any aid.

The High Court, then instructed National Testing Agency (NTA) for re-examination for the two only, after given 48-hours notice to the children. On October 28, the Supreme Court issued a stay order on the matter.
