Chennai:- The Madras court on Tuesday directed the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) to  award grace marks 196 to all candidates who took the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) in Tamil language. The CBSE has been asked to revise the NEET rank list in 2 weeks.

The decision  was taken after it was found 49 questions in the NEET examination was translated wrongly for the medical exam.

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in this case has been filed while seeking compensatory marks as the medium was translated wrongly.

Earlier on July 6, the Madras HC has lashed out at the CBSE saying that it was being autocratic in the matter related to the errors. It said despite knowing that a PIL on the matter was filed, the court asked the CBSE “Why did they do so?”

Referring to the CBSE’s submission, the bench said, “How do you decide the right answers for the questions based on a majority view? CBSE is accepting even wrong answers under the pretext of majority decision. How is that in Bihar state so many students got through the examination?” it asked.

TK Rangarajan the petitioner CPI-M leader has submitted that keywords in Tamil were submitted wrongly.

The judges had also criticised the CBSE saying that the mistakes in the question paper were not mere ambiguity.
