The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition to postpone the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for 2021. The petition was filed after the CBSE compartment, private, and patrachar exams were announced. According to the Supreme Court, the examination will go place on September 12 as planned.
The plea was dismissed on behalf of a group of students who claimed that the admission exam will conflict with other exams. “More than 16 lakh students will take NEET,” the court urged. It cannot be postponed because of the protests of a few students.” Justice A.M. Khanwilkar presided over the bench. “We will not take this petition into consideration,” the bench stated. There should be no doubt, and the exam should go according to the schedule.
“A day later, Rahul Gandhi urged for the NEET exam to be postponed, tweeting that the government is blind and pushing students under stress.
The issue is that if other scheduled test results do not satisfy requirements, the NEET exam criteria would be nullified. However, the National Testing Agency confirmed to the bench on September 3 that students will be able to take the exam regardless of whether or not CBSE results would be released by then.
The Bench then assured the petitioner verbally that “Your concern is that other exams would begin while you wait for your results. Your anxiety is unfounded, since authorities have stated that you will be allowed to appear “.
NEET exam is bound to happen on Sunday, i.e. September 12th.
