NEET 2017: NEET aspirants seek CM help in changing NEET exam date – Supreme Court of India had already announced to conduct the NEET examination on the prescribed dates, thereby refusing to extend it further. Now one of the medical aspirants on Thursday have knocked the doors of the Chief Minister. However, with the CM out of the city, he only had to make do with officials at the CM office to whom they submitted their memorandum requesting an extension of NEET.
According to them, UP Board Students and those from the rural areas have to face the impact of late intermediate examinations that got pushed by a month owing to elections in the state and also an early date of NEET this year as against July last year.
One of the aspirants Naveen Tripathi said “Almost one lakh students will be affected since there is just no time for revision, specially when the syllabus was shifted from that of UP board books to NCERT ones,”
In the letter submitted to the CM office, the aspirants have also claimed that both UP board exams and CBSE exams of class XII are ending by April-end which would leave them no time to revise the class XI syllabus that is also part of NEET pattern. Another Aspirant Ghulam Nabi said “The last date for admissions to MBBS and BDS is September 31, which is five months from now. Given the impact NEET has on students from the state, the chief minister should consider taking up the issue with the authorities,”
