CBSE mulls challenging HC order on providing grace marks in NEET

CBSE mulls challenging HC order on providing grace marks in NEET on Business Standard. The CBSE conducted the NEET on May 6 in 136 cities in 11 languages


Latest News The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is contemplating to move the Supreme Court against an order by the Madras High Court granting grace marks to those who wrote this year's NEET exam in Tamil, sources in the HRD Ministry said on Friday. The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court had on July 10 ordered the CBSE to grant 196 marks--4 marks each for 49 erroneous questions--in the Tamil version of the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET). The petitioner, senior CPI(M) leader and Rajya Sabha MP T K Rangarajan, had sought full marks for the 49 questions, saying key words in Tamil questions were wrongly translated from English which caused confusion among students. There were 180 questions carrying 720 marks in total in the NEET. "CBSE is contemplating to move the higher court, but a final call will be taken after holding


consultations with various stakeholders and seeking legal opinion," a source in the ministry said. Another source said senior officials from both CBSE and the ministry were holding consultations in the matter. However, a senior health ministry official said they have not been approached by the CBSE and that the "body is free to decide on the future course of action".
