Complete Details: SC stays Madras High Court order to grant 196 marks to NEET 2018 Tamil Nadu students. Read complete news.
National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG) 2018 was held on May 6. Its result was announced on June 4.
In exam, it was claimed that Tamil language question paper had 49 errors. As per a petition filed, it was demanded that candidates who appeared for exam in Tamil language should get 196 (= 49 * 4) bonus marks. As per a Madras High Court judgement on this petition, CBSE was asked to give 196 grace marks to all students who took NEET 2018 in Tamil Language.
When this judgement came, 2nd round counselling was put on hold. On July 20, Supreme Court heard this matter and decided that CBSE should not give grace marks as it was made clear that in case of ambiguity, candidates should refer English version. Also it said that if some students get grace marks then lot of students will come in position of disadvantage.
Bigger question is now how exam conducting bodies will avoid such errors in future.

CBSE is stepping down from its duties of conducting NEET exam. Now instead, National Testing Agency (NTA) will. NEET 2019 will be held by NTA.
For first time, NEET exam will be held in online mode. Also, it will be held twice a year. So essentially NEET 2018 will be the last of its kind and next year onwards there will be waves of changes!
However this should not be a deterrent to any student. The exam will be of same difficulty level and have same syllabus.
