However, the Madurai Bench had on May 24 granted an interim stay on the publication of results of NEET across the country.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has informed the Madras High Court Bench here that it had administered only two different sets of question papers - one common paper in English and Hindi and another translated in eight vernacular languages - with equal level of difficulty for the National-Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) held on May 7 for admission to undergraduate medical courses. This case will be hearing in the court next week.
The NEET was conducted on May 7, 2017 from 10 am to 1 pm by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Over 11.38 lakh students who have written the NEET exam this year are waiting for a conclusive verdict on the same.
"The first concern for many of us is whether students will first secure the required mark to make it to the colleges".

And during the London Bridge terror attacks over the weekend, he invoked the strength of the Lions and became a hero. Recalling the events of Saturday night, he said "They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah".
All the students who fulfill the eligibility criteria and wish to pursue medical courses have applied online. The results of NEET UG 2017 which were scheduled to be out on June 8, will not be published now till the Madras High Court passes its order. They had demanded that the examination be conducted in a uniform manner.
The court expressed its dissatisfaction over the CBSE's reply saying that the argument was not valid as leaking a paper was a possibility even in English language question papers. Of the 10, four sets were randomly selected for translation into vernacular languages and the remaining six sets were used for English and Hindi.
The CBSE said that in the case the stay is not vacated the same would jeorpardise the future of lakhs of students.
They said that while a common merit list will be prepared by CBSE, questions asked to them were almost totally different from questions asked to English medium students, with Gujarati medium questions being of much higher level of difficulty. Thus the delay due to the order of the court is already beyond the permissible limit, the CBSE also stated. However, this article will continue to be updated to reflect official updates as and when they come in. However, the court then ordered CBSE to retain the system this year and calculate the marks of the students accordingly, which in turn delayed the results by a few days.
