Supreme Court On NEET-UG Row -“Sanctity Of Exam Affected… Need Answers”

Supreme Court On NEET-UG Row -On Tuesday, the Supreme Court took action on a petition regarding the NEET-UG 2024 examination, a highly competitive test for admission to undergraduate medical courses. Allegations of paper leaks prompted the court to issue notices to the central government and the National Testing Agency (NTA). The court emphasized that merely conducting the exam doesn’t guarantee its integrity, stating, “It is not that simple… that because you have done it (held the exam) it is sacrosanct.” Justices Vikram Nath and Ahsanuddin Amanullah clarified that while counseling for admissions would continue, they were not halting it. The matter has been adjourned until July 8 and will be heard alongside another plea before Chief Justice DY Chandrachud.

This development stems from a fresh petition regarding alleged discrepancies in the NEET-UG 2024 results, including concerns over score variations and possible preferential treatment. The petitioners, hailing from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, are demanding the cancellation of scores from the May 5 exam and a fresh examination.

They have highlighted issues such as inconsistencies in the allocation of grace marks, without transparent criteria, and statistically improbable scores, such as students achieving a perfect 720 out of 720. Moreover, they raised concerns about a disproportionately high number of students from one coaching center scoring full marks and discrepancies in the provisional answer key contested by over 13,000 students.

The petition underscores the gravity of cheating in a medical entrance exam, emphasizing the need for a thorough understanding of scientific and medical principles in this field. Cheating compromises competence and poses risks to patient safety.
