NEET, plausible and wrong: SC to hear plea against key

The answer key of five questions asked in NEET(UG)-2019 exam was wrong and the paper needs to be quashed: Petition in the apex court

|

New Delhi: The Supreme Court agreed on Thursday to hear on 14 June a plea of medical aspirants, who claimed that the answer key of five questions asked in NEET(UG)-2019 exam was wrong and the paper needs to be quashed.

A vacation bench of and Ajay Rastogi agreed to hear the plea filed by four students who appeared for the exam.

The petition filed by four Hyderabad-based students — Kayathi Mohan Reddy and three others through advocate Mahfooz Nazki, said that National Testing Agency (NTA) which conducted the exam issued wrong answer keys and therefore jeopardised the career prospects of the aspirants who sat for the exam.

The NEET exam was conducted on 5 May and the official answer key was issued on 29 May to the questions asked in the examination.

“Upon perusal of the key, the petitioners were shocked to note that answers to a number of questions were demonstrably wrong,” the plea against the NEET exam read.

The NEET aspirants said they gave the representation about the errors in the official answer key on 30 May and subsequently on 5 June, a revised answer key was published.

“Pertinently, no option was given to the candidates to file any objections. To the shock and chagrin of the petitioners, not only did the key continue to have errors, some answers that had been correctly notified earlier stood changed to a wrong answer,” the petition said.

“…it is thus ex-facie evident that the whole of examination conducted by the respondent no. 1 (NTA) is grossly illegal, arbitrary and impinges upon the constitutional and fundamental rights of the Petitioners herein and is vitiated in terms of the law laid down by this Court”, it said.

The plea said, “The respondents have not only failed to rectify the defects/errors in the question papers but have also refused to accept any representations sought to be made by the petitioners in respect of the revised key. The whole process is, therefore vitiated and is liable to be set aside”.
