Hyderabad: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a plea moved by a group of students claiming that the answer keys of four questions in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Neet) for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses were incorrect.
A vacation bench comprising Justices Ajay Rastogi and Surya Kant said that the judges cannot become subject experts, and, therefore, cannot sit as an appellate body over the National Testing Agency (NTA).
The petition was filed by advocate Mahfooz Nazki representing Kayathi Rohan Reddy and three others, hailing from Hyderabad.
The students claimed that the error can potentially jeopardise the prospects of lakhs of students, who had appeared for the test.
Counsel for the petitioners urged the top court to direct the quashing of the final answer key published on June 5 by the NTA....
