With registration for national eligibility-cum-entrance test (NEET-2) ending on June 25 and CBSE not releasing the answer keys of NEET-1, students are in a fix and unable to decide whether to apply for NEET-2 or not. This because applying to NEET-2 will mean surrendering the marks scored in NEET-1.
Parents and academicians have started writing to the CBSE through e-mails, requesting them to display the answer key so that it enables students to calculate their exact score and decide whether to apply for NEET-2 or not.
They have further requested for extension of last registration date.
NEET-1 was held amid uncertainty when issue was under consideration of the Supreme Court.
When the apex court finally decided the issue, it allowed NEET-1 candidates also to avail another chance to appear in NEET-2, considering the fact that many could not appear in first exam or many did not perform well in the wake of uncertainty.
However, the option was open to candidates and those who apply for NEET-2, NEET-1 score automatically stood forfeited.
