NEET to be held as scheduled: Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court, on Friday, said that CBSE will conduct the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) on May 1st and July 24th for the admission of the students to under-graduate medical courses.

However, apart from NEET, some states including Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana and others will conduct the medical entrance examinations separately.

An apex court bench headed by Justice Anil R. Dave asked Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand and others to file applications seeking whatever relief they want, after saying that the examinations will go on.

However, according to Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, students, who had their schooling in regional languages and are not proficient in English will find difficulty in appearing in NEET, which is scheduled to be held on May 1st.

Attorney General said that court should allow other states to take their own exams along with NEET.

NEET will only be conducted in English and Hindi languages.
