NEET 2016: The Supreme Court on Friday said that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) on May 1 and July 24 for admission to under-graduate medical courses as it had earlier directed.

Besides NEET, the medical entrance examination being conducted by some states including Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana and others will also take place separately.

Saying that the examinations will go on, an apex court bench headed by Justice Anil R. Dave asked Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand and others to file applications seeking whatever relief they want.

Earlier in the morning, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi addressed the court seeking modification of its first day order contending that a large number of students who had their schooling in the regional languages not proficient in English will find it difficult to appear in NEET 1 to be held on May 1.

This would be discriminatory, the attorney general said, making a strong plea that the court should allow the exam being conducted by states along with NEET.

The CBSE is conducting the NEET in the current year only in English and Hindi.

    if cbse does want to hold neet then it should do it in a single date on july 24 otherwise it will be unfair for children who are going to appear on may 1 as preparation for state and neet entrance is entirely different and we are not thoroughly prepared for it due to lack of time
