The Supreme Court is going to hear the petition to postpone the date of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017. The NEET examination is scheduled to be conducted on May 7, 2017. The petition is filed by the Sankalp Charitable Trust seeking an extension of date of NEET 2017 considering several reasons including the short span of time between board exams and NEET.
The Sankalp Charitable Test says that the aspirants get only 10 to 15 days for preparation because of the short time between board exams and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. Last year there was a gap of two months between the board exams and NEET.
Earlier, there were multiple medical entrance exams for students to choose from, but now there is only the NEET exam which is a national level examination. Students who fail to qualify NEET will lose an academic year.
Moreover, CBSE included AYUSH and Veterinary sciences in the later stages of NEET application process. The decision to include the Veterinary Sciences was taken only four days before the last date of registration for NEET.
Considering the Supreme Court orders to accept the applications of candidates above 25 years of age, CBSE notified that the Admit cards for NEET 2017 will be made available on the official website from April 22.
Last week, the Supreme Court also directed the Central government to include Urdu as a language in NEET exam from the next academic session. The Supreme Court decision came in a case filed by the Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO).
