President Pranab Mukherjee has given the nod for a single test National Eligibility- cum- Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions to medical and dental courses across the country. A uniform entrance examination will be held for admission to all medical institutions at the undergraduate and post-graduate level in Hindi, English and such other languages. The National Eligibility- cum- Entrance Exam (NEET) will be introduced from the academic year 2017-18.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to interfere in the National Eligibility- cum- Entrance Test result on a plea filed by a group of NEET aspirants seeking a court-monitored probe by the Uttarakhand Police into alleged paper leak of NEET phase-II. However, the Court has granted permission to the petitioner to approach the Uttarakhand High Court.
The stay for NEET result was also sought, which is scheduled to be declared by CBSE on August 17. The CBSE has denied any paper leak and has said they had matched the original question paper of NEET II and found that the seized material is entirely different from the original question paper of the entrance test.
