Supreme Court rejects Maharashtra’s plea on exemption from NEET-UG for MBBS Admissions

The Supreme Court today refused to entertain Maharashtra Govt.’s plea for exemption from the 2012-2013 National Common Entrance Test NEET  for Graduate and Postgraduate Courses of Medicine and suggested the state approach the High Court.

A bench of justices HL Dattu and CK Prasad also refrained from giving any direction to the high court.

“We don’t want to give any direction or make observations to the high court. We want the high court to act independently,” the bench told counsel Shekhar Naphade who sought permission to withdraw the application.

The state had moved the application seeking exemption from the CET on the ground that it posed difficulties for students on account of the change in syllabus.

Maharashtra contended the course prescribed by MCI and the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is dissimilar to the syllabus taught in the state to Class 11th & 12th students,  reports DNA India

“As such, the new syllabus for the common entrance test would be difficult for them to cope up in such short period of time, gravely prejudicing their rights for being selected in any good medical college.

“Everyone knows the amount of stress for performing well in competitive exams is enormous on students. Therefore, any such sudden changes will be demoralising for the students and can cause severe depression and anxiety with unfortunate consequences,” the state had said.
