NEET 2018: SC stays order that granted grace marks to students who took exam in Tamil

The high court on July 10 directed the board to award 196 marks to NEET students who took the medical entrance exam in Tamil.

According to the high court order, the CBSE has to award four marks each for 49 questions to roughly 24,000 examinees on account of ambiguities in the Tamil translation of the said questions. The Board was given two weeks to bring out a fresh list of qualified candidates.

CBSE conducts NEET on behalf of the Health Ministry and the counselling process for admissions is currently underway.
