NEET 2020 Issues
Earlier, the apex court on Monday issued a session order comprising Justices S. A. Babde, A. S. Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian, which heard the explanation given by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta during the hearing on the petitions related to NEET examination. It said, “Students in the restricted zone where the spread of COVID -19 virus is most prevalent and unhealthy students can re-sit the exam on October 14. The results of the exam can be released on October 16.”
The NEET exam for medical and dental was held across the country last September 13th. About 15 lakh people wrote that exam. The exam, which was initially scheduled for May 3, was postponed to July 13 after being held on July 26 due to corona spread.
Following this, 12 students were seated in an examination room according to the Corona virus prevention guidelines. However, some students approached the Supreme Court claiming that they could not go to the exam because of the spread of the corona virus in some places.
In support of their demand, some state governments, especially those not ruled by the BJP, approached the Supreme Court.
But the NTA argued that delaying the announcement of exam results at the current stage would affect students who could enroll in the next academic year. In this context, Indian Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal had said that students from areas affected by the Corona outbreak or sick students who could not write the exam would be offered a replacement. In this case, the Supreme Court, which had set October 14 as the date for the students to write the exam, has announced that the results of the exam may be released on October 16.
MBBS/ BDS Counselling 2020
As soon as the NEET results are released on October 16, the Directorate General of Health Services will take action for counseling for the 15% All India Quota.
Officials said the remaining 85% of the seats will be held on the basis of the medical education admission policy followed by the respective state governments.
