NEET 2017: SC refuses to nullify MBBS, dental entrance exam results

The Madras high court today directed the authorities to prepare a fresh merit list and conduct the counselling for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses accordingly

A student, Darnish Kumar then filed the petition in Madras High Court, which today ruled that the State government's order of reserving 85% seats for State Board students will not be applicable for MBBS admissions.

The Madras High Court Bench here on Wednesday directed the State Government and Director of Medical Education to maintain status quo until Friday with respect to MBBS/BDS admissions for the academic year 2017-18.

Leading the arguments on behalf of the petitioners, Senior Counsel Isaac Mohanlal told the court that there was an imminent necessity to pass interim orders since the DME had planned to release the rank list on Friday and commence the counselling from Monday.

The respondents presented their side stating that even with two medical bills passed by the state assembly, there was no assent by the President for passing it.

In its submission, the State government, justified issuing an order, saying it was not in favour of NEET, which had more than 50 per cent questions based on CBSE syllabus and hence there was an inequality in the all-India exam. They argued about the plight of the state board students who had to take up NEET, which was helpful for students from CBSE board.
