VIJAYAWADA: Candidates who wrote the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test are worried over the announcement of NEET results. With speculations abound that there could be a retest, they are experiencing restless days. As per the schedule, the results are slated to be released on June 8.

However, Madras High Court has issued a stay on the announcement of results. In recent days, Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court granted a stay of publication of the NEET results for undergraduate medical courses, which was conducted on May 7 across the country.

As the examination was conducted in nine Indian languages apart from English, the question paper differed from English to other languages.

Though the Supreme Court has clearly given the guidelines to follow uniformity in the examination, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) overruled it.

With all these series of issues, students are now more worried about the results whether they would be announced on Thursday or not. If announced, would they be considered? Or there will be any sort of retest?

Each and every student is having many questions and doubts. Even more than that, they are tensed.

On the other hand, students who have put pharmacy as a safe option are in a dilemma whether to go for EAMCET counseling which is going to start from June 8. If they carry on with pharmacy, they might lose an opportunity to go for NEET counseling or lose fee paid for pharmacy seat. Also, some students are trying their luck to do MBBS abroad.

“I am sure that I would get a good rank in NEET, but I am not ready to take retest. I haven’t written AP EAMCET. Now, either I have to go overseas and complete my MBBS or wait until the end and watch the drama,” said Koneru Kaushik, a NEET aspirant.

K Sridhar, a senior faculty at a private coaching center, says, “There is a possibility that this examination would be canceled and re-conducted. However, students who fail to qualify in NEET would lose the other options too. In case, if they attend those counseling and take admission, and then gets qualified in NEET, they would have to lose a huge sum which was paid as fees. Also, many students are enquiring about MBBS overseas.”
