CBSE to declare NEET 2017 results today PTI
news NEET Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 11:40

The results for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 will be declared by the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) on Tuesday.

Students can check their results on the official website, i.e. cbseresults.nic.in , and cbseneet.nic.in .

NEET is conducted for admissions to MBBS/BDS courses in India in Medical and Dental Colleges.

Last week, the Supreme Court permitted the CBSE to declare the results of NEET 2017 for under graduate medical courses.

Staying a Madras High Court order restraining the CBSE from declaring the result of NEET 2017 for under graduate medical courses - MBBS/BDS, the vacation bench of Justice Prafulla C Pant and Justice Deepak Gupta said that no High Court across the country would entertain any plea relating to the NEET 2017.

The apex court order thus paved the way for counselling and admission to 56,000 MBBS/BDS seats in the country. The NEET exam was held on May 7 and over 11 lakh students appeared for the exam.

NEET was conducted in 10 languages -- English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada and Odiya.

Two petitions were filed in the Madras and Gujarat High Courts demanding cancellation of NEET 2017 as medical aspirants alleged that the questions for English and regional languages were of varying difficulty.

States of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Kerala, Union Territory of Puducherry and the Karnataka Private Medical Colleges Association had earlier filed applications in the Supreme Court opposing the unified entrance exam.

The idea of NEET has been contested since its inception by various state governments especially the Tamil Nadu government.

Late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had strongly objected to the single national-level examination for medical courses citing it would “put rural students at a disadvantage because they lack resources to stand at an equal playing field as their economically advantaged peers.

The TN government also claimed that it would also overlap the state's autonomy and right to regulate the admission policies to medical educational institutions.
