Chennai: The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court stayed declaration of results of National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for MBBS and BDS courses till June 7.

In an interim order on petition challenging the NEET exam on May 7, the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court ordered the CBSE not to declare the results till the final order was passed on a petition challenging the examination alleging that the exams were not conducted in a uniform manner across the country.

Mr Justice N Seshasayee had last week sought the replies of the CBSE and the union health secretary, on the petition alleging that the test was not uniform across the country as the question papers in English and other language was different in degree of difficulty.

The petitioner alleged that different sets of question papers were used in different parts of the country. Two sets of question papers were given to students taking examinations in English and Tamil in the state, the petitioner said adding that the Tamil question paper was easier.
