CBSE's faux pas puts spanner in NEET merit list

With the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court having directed the Central Board of Secondary Education to give 196 grace marks each to the 24720 students who took the NEET exam in the Tamil language, it is being feared that the earlier declared NEET merit list will now become redundant and a fresh merit list will have to be drawn up by the CBSE.

This development has come even as the counseling for admission to medical and dental colleges, based on the earlier merit list, is in full swing across the country.

The CBSE is left with a lot of egg on its face after the High Court order, since as many as 49 out of the 180 questions translated from English into Tamil language in the question paper were wrongly translated. This is why the students have been given the grace marks.

The situation speaks volumes about the ability of the CBSE to hold such prestigious exams, and students must be thankful that this task will be taken away from the CBSE from next year.
