The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has reported to the Madras High Court Bench that it had been overseeing only two sets of question papers. One common paper in English and Hindi; and the other translated in 8 vernacular languages: with an equal level of difficulty for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) held on 7 May, for admission held to undergraduate medical courses.
In further clarification, the CBSE said that the Board did not translate the paper in all different languages to avoid leakage of the question paper. The Board mentioned that in the process of translation 32 subject experts would have to be involved which would enhance the chances of leakage of the question paper.
Denying the petitioner’s claim that the question paper in Tamil was easy as compared with the one in English, CBSE Chennai regional officer, Mr Mahesh D Dharamadhikari says “ It is only the subject experts who can decide the difficulty of the two sets of question papers, and not the candidates who appeared for the examination”.
Indicating the court to withdraw its interim order of May 24, the CBSE official said, since there would a delay in the results of NEET till June 12, therefore delay the admissions is also foreseen.
