NEET 2018: Supreme Court stays Madras HC order awarding 196 grace marks to students who took exam in Tamil

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday stayed an order of the Madurai bench of Madras High Court awarding 196 grace marks to NEET students who had opted to write the examination in Tamil language on account of error in translation.

A bench of Justices SA Bobde and L Nageswara Rao stayed the order and issued notice on a plea of the CBSE challenging the high court order.

The bench posted the matter for hearing after two weeks and asked the parties to come out with a solution to deal with the situation, saying, “We cannot dole out marks in this fashion”.

The bench observed that it appears that after the judgment, the students who opted for the Tamil language are in an advantageous position over others.

A view of Supreme Court of India. PTI

The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court had on 10 July ordered the CBSE to grant 196 marks – 4 marks each for 49 erroneously translated questions – in the Tamil version of this year’s NEET to the students who took the exam in the regional language.

NTA NEET 2019 likely to be conducted only once in pen and paper format, decision this week

National Eligibility and Entrance Test, NEET 2019 is expected to be conducted only once and in pen and paper format. As per reports, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, MHRD is considering the concerns raised over the proposal of conducting NEET 2019 in online mode. With restrictions of rural candidates, sources close to HRD have suggested that the proposal of continuing NTA NEET 2019 in the same pattern and format is being considered and a decision is expected this week.

NEET 2019 would be conducted by the National Testing Agency, NTA as announced by HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar. However, instead of the proposed twice a year, the examination may be conducted once, in the month of May or June, as was the case under CBSE till this year. As per the announcement, NTA had planned NEET 2019 to be conducted in computer based format I February 2019 and then again in May 2019.

Though the reports have not been confirmed as yet, the sources have shared that Health Ministry has approached HRD to reconsider its plan to conduct the examinations in online or computer based format. The health ministry has also reportedly asked HRD to rethink its decision to conduct NEET twice a year.

“The health ministry also feels that CBSE should assist NTA in the conduct of the exam as the Board has been conducting it for many years earlier in the form of PMT”, said a source to TOI. The HRD is considering the requests and proposals and a decision on the same is expected within this week.

As for the pros and cons of the decisions, various experts feel that the transition would be a concern but computer based tests are the future. Many pointed out that with NEET being the single point examination for admissions to all undergraduate medical and dental seats, the logistic challenge of conducting the examination in online format were immense.

“Its not merely the number of students that appear for the examination. It is the fact that students even from remote areas appear for the examination that is the concern. Making sure that all the students are able to transition without concerns to the online mode is a task which NTA would have to facilitate,” shared an expert.

As for the twice a year or once a year debate, experts pointed out that the decision in the end is about the feasibility of the examination. “If the ministry was to consider pen and paper based format, the cost of conducting the examination twice a year could be an evident challenge.” Experts however are divided over the debate and believe that it would be a balancing act for the HRD ministry.

DECISION ON NEET 2019 NEW RULES BY 18 AUG; TO TELL MODE AND NUMBER OF TIMES NEET WILL BE IN 2019

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG) 2019 may either be held in online mode or offline mode, either once a year or twice a year, as per the final decision of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The new rules that will govern NEET 2019 shall be announced by end of this week that happens to be August 18.

Final decision shall take into consideration several factors. That shall include the two most major points that ministry of health had brought up. First was the disadvantage to rural students if exam is online (computer based test) mode. Second was that class 12 students would have to bear 4-5 months of continuous exams if NEET is held in February as well as May.

A few days ago’s breakout of the news regarding MHRD considering roll back of NEET 2019 changes has left many students baffled. The uncertainty regarding the conduct of the exam will be cleared by MHRD by end of the week. Officials will confirm the mode and number of times NEET will be in 2019.

As per NTA implemented new NEET pattern, exam will be conducted twice a year; once in the month of February and other in May. It also introduces for the first time that national level exam to take place in the online mode. The latter step has been sought to be reconsidered after taking into account the lack of resources available to rural students. Thus continuing in the old pattern and mode will save such students from the pain of adapting to the new pattern.

The main issue that arises from the new pattern is the logistics problem. As many NEET aspirants do not have access to computer facility to practice for the test. Being a single test for undergraduates for admission in medical and dental seats, it is necessary that the interest of all the stakeholders is taken into consideration.

So now the MHRD has been asked, that at least for the year 2019, status quo shall remain same as 2018.

When the changes in NEET exam were announced last month, MHRD had assured to assist the disadvantaged students through various ways. It was proposed that a network of online test centers will be created by NTA to facilitate the intricacies of new exam pattern. Thus, students will able to practice for the exam at the labs of schools/ Engineering colleges in nearby areas. To make it more convenient, the labs will open on weekends also. The students will able to use this facility free of cost.

Official news regarding confirmation on NEET 2019 new rules ought to come by August 18, that will clear all the doubts and give a proper direction to students. It will help them to prepare for NEET 2019 accordingly without wasting more time on the decision regarding the conduc of exam from next year.

JEE MAIN ONLY FOR IIT ADMISSIONS AND NO MORE JEE ADVANCED – DECISION ON AUGUST 21

IIT Council is the top decision-making body for the Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs). On August 21, 2018, this council is up for a big discussion. There are several proposals that will be discussed. However, the biggest one which is coming up is the scrapping of JEE Advanced and only using JEE Main as admission tests for IIT admissions. The other proposal which is second in line is that allowing students to choose the IIT campus of their choice during admissions but not the course. Now, are these ideas feasible? Changing the entire scenario of the IIT intakes – this is going to take a lot of brainstorming and analysis on the behalf of the IIT council.

The decisions will not be easy and will take much much time in the coming future to be implemented if the IIT council finds these ideas feasible. The IIT Council is headed by the human resource development minister.

Examination (JEE), passing which is a prerequisite for admission to the 23 IITs.

Proposal 2: A student will be allowed to choose the campus of his or her choice and not the course at the time of seeking admission. This proposal has been submitted to the MHRD by two different IITs.

What do these proposals suggest?

This proposal suggests the following –

Point 1: Scrapping JEE Advanced and making JEE Main the sole examination for admission IITs.

This is a huge one. The logic is to introduce a one test admission system. There will be no second level test or interview. Only one uniform test for all the competing candidates. This idea aims at taking off pressures from the candidates.

Point 2: Restructuring JEE Main as one sole admission test.

Under this, it has been proposed that in JEE Main no ranks will be given to the candidates. Candidates will be grouped. For example, candidates securing 80 to 90 per cent of marks will be grouped as one and treated as equals. Similarly, a structure will be introduced. Out of the top groups, candidates will be eligible for admission in the IITs.

Point 3: Admissions.

Two of the IITs, which are yet not identified, have submitted this proposal to allow the students to choose the IIT campus of their choice but not the course.

What these proposals tend to solve?

There is too much pressure for the candidates to take the board exam, then JEE Main and then again JEE Advanced. The high-end coaching centres are thus earning a lot of profit out of this which is morally wrong. Many believe that candidates who do not achieve the desired ranks are demotivated. Many are exhausted after extensive coaching and entrance exams. No ranks will ensure those hardworking candidates are treated as equals in their engineering campuses.

A few of the IITs have already opposed the idea, saying that allowing the candidates to choose the campus and not the course is unfair. They believe that students will opt for the older, more established IITs if given a choice.

Summarising all the above proposal to make JEE Main a single examination for IIt admission and eliminating JEE Advanced is to relieve pressure off the candidates and to make the admission system as fair as possible. So the questions that arise are – Is it unfair right now? Is it a lot of pressure for the candidates who have been giving 2 examinations for IIT admissions till date? Will this increase or decrease the quality of future engineers? Well, all these will depend on an analysis of years of data and a lot of speculations.
