Supreme Court orders CBSE to set common NEET question papers in all languages
The Supreme Court has recently expressed its dissatisfaction to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for setting different questions for students taking National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) in regional languages. The apex court has ordered that there should be a common question paper for all NEET examinations henceforth.
There have been numerous allegations that most of the regional language papers were difficult than the English and Hindi papers. Earlier in July, the apex court had declined to suspend NEET examinations, as it would affect over six lakhs candidates who have qualified in the entrance exam.The court had also overruled the appeal to conduct the test afresh due to the level of difficulty of regional language papers compared to English and Hindi papers.
