NEET 2018 Common Paper In All Languages: The NEET 2018 exam will have a common paper. It was submitted before the Supreme Court that there would be a common paper for all languages. The board gave this assurance to the Supreme Court.
NEET UG 2018: In a bid to make life easier for all medical aspirants, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to set just one single question paper for all across the country.
From this year onwards, only one set of question paper will be set for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), as per the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE’s) decision. Students were earlier allowed to attempt NEET in 10 languages including Hindi and English, the CBSE informed a bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and F A Nazeer. The apex court was not in support of the decision to set different sets of papers in different languages and termed it ‘illogical’. It had said that evaluating the competence of students when their questions are different would be very difficult.
CBSE NEET UG 2018: In a bid to make life easier for all medical aspirants, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to set just one single question paper for all across the country. Once in practice, candidates who are to appear for the National Eligibility Entrance Test this year will have just one question paper with the same difficulty level everywhere. NEET is an entrance test for admission in MBBS and BDS courses. CBSE has informed a Supreme Court bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and F A Nazeer that earlier students were allowed to take NEET in 10 languages including Hindi and English. The top court had termed as “illogical,” the practice of holding examination with different sets of question papers in different languages. The apex court had observed that it would be “very difficult” to evaluate the competence of students when their questions are different.
The Supreme Court has also rejected CBSE’s contention that if the level of difficulty of all papers was the same, then it served the purpose of uniformity in the examination and there was nothing wrong in having multiple sets of question papers.
At the end, the CBSE agreed to the suggestions of the apex court and said that from the present academic session, there would be only one question paper. The same question paper will be translated into different languages, the CBSE said.
The bench was hearing a plea filed by a ‘Sankalp’ charitable trust seeking a direction to the CBSE that there be only one set of question paper for medical aspirants. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is soon expected to release the official notification of NEET UG 2018 exam soon at cbseneet.nic.in. Candidates who wish to appear in the exam must regularly visit the official website. The details on the latest rules, minimum eligibility, age limit, number of attempts etc will be available in the official notification. The NEET-UG 2018 entrance exam will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
The NEET (UG) shall consist of one paper containing 180 objective type questions (four options with the single correct answer) from Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany & Zoology). The duration of paper would be 03 hours from 10.00 a.m. to 01.00 p.m.
