New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that all admissions for undergraduate medical and dental courses for the academic year 2016-17 will have to be made only on the basis of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet) in July this year.

A three-judge bench of Justices Anil R. Dave, Shiva Kirti Singh and A.K. Goel said, “We do not find any merit in the applications seeking modification of order dated April 28, 2016. Only other contention relates to perceived hardship to the students who have either applied for Neet-I but could not appear or who appeared but could not prepare fully thinking that the preparation was to be only for 15 per cent of all India seats and there will be further opportunity to appear in other examinations. To allay any such apprehension, we direct that all such eligible candidates who could not appear in Neet-I and those who had appeared but have apprehension they had not prepared well, be permitted to appear in Neet-II, subject to seeking an option from the said candidates to give up their candidature for Neet-I.”

 

The bench said, “It would be open to the respondents to reschedule the date of holding Neet-II, if necessary. We may also add here that to ensure total credibility of the examination to be held by the CBSE, the Oversight Committee (headed by Justice Lodha) shall also oversee the Neet-II examination.”
