NEET row: TN MP files caveat in Supreme Court
The Madras High Court ordered the CBSE to grant 196 marks — 4 marks each for 49 erroneous questions — in the Tamil version of this year’s NEET to those who took the exam for medical admissions in the regional language.
Petitioner senior CPI-M leader T K Rangarajan has sought full marks for the 49 questions, saying key words in the Tamil questions were wrongly translated from English and this caused confusion for the students. There were 180 questions with a total mark of 720 in the NEET.
The court also ordered the CBSE to release a revised rank list based on the new marks within two weeks.This move by the Madras HC bench will benefit around 24,000 students who had taken the NEET in Tamil.
