Highlights of the SC’s ruling of NEET:
- All candidates who could not appear in NEET 1 would be allowed to appear in NEET 2
- Those who appeared in NEET 1 but have apprehension that they had not prepared well, be permitted to appear in NEET 2 if they give up their candidature for NEET 1.
- Common all India test can’t be held bad only because it affects the rights of states & pvt colleges.
- States can’t conduct their own exams since Centre’s regulation on NEET overrides states’ law on separate exams.
- SC says NEET doesn’t affect rights of minority nor does it impact provisions for reservation.
Earlier, on Friday, SC had said that NEET-II, scheduled for July 24, will allow only those candidates who have not appeared in the May 1 NEET-I exam irrespective of whether or not they had filled up the forms.
According to the court order, CBSE’s AIPMT on May 1 has to be considered as NEET-I exam.
According to the schedule, the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) scheduled for May 1 was treated as the first round of the NEET.
However, those who have not applied for AIPMT will be given opportunity to appear in round two on July 24.
The combined result will be declared on August 17, in order to complete the admission process by September 30 – the deadline set by the apex court in its previous orders.
