NEET 2017: Madras High Court seeks answers of 12 questions from CBSE
How could the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conduct NEET for students from all the other boards, including its own students, and how could the CBSE be sure that a single test would be able to assess the intellectual capability of all the students who are aspiring to become the doctors of tomorrow?
These were a few questions raised by the Madras High Court, according to which, only a minute number of students in urban areas would be benefited by the existing NEET model.

Talking about the storm that Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been undergoing from the past couple of months, there's no denying the fact that it has been a real headache for them. The controversy regarding the NEET 2017 arose when some of the students complained that the NEET papers in vernacular languages were much tougher than the ones which were in English language. 

It was really a bias on behalf of the CBSE, however, the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) denied such claims saying that the papers had been set by highly qualified experts and they had made sure that the difficulty level was maintained uniform throughout the papers. 

As per a report in Times of India, the Madras High Court posed 12 questions to the CBSE which would ensure a level playing field for the students who appear in these competitive exams. The CBSE has been asked to furnish replies to these questions for the next hearing of the case:

1)   Is it possible to determine the caliber of the students by a single NEET examination conducted by CBSE?

2)   Questions are set by the CBSE, Won't it be difficult for non-CBSE students?

3)   Questions that are set as per CBSE syllabus and CBSE students constitute only 5-10 per cent of all the students. Aren't they at an unfair advantage?

4)   Is it not necessary to provide a level playing field for all the students?

5)   The exclusion of school performance. Wouldn't it make the students unserious about their school studies?

6)    Will it not be appropriate to combine the class XII marks and NEET marks in equal percentile to determine the calibre of the students more accurately?

7)   Would it be possible for authorities to conduct the NEET examination continuously along with class XII examination?

8)   Would not the considering of NEET examination marks alone for medical admission make room for mushrooming up of coaching centres?

9)   Why not the authorities prescribe uniform syllabus for physics, chemistry , biology and maths throughout India?

10)  Is it not essential to train teachers in the new syllabus for physics, chemistry, biology and maths?

11)  Whether or not the TN government is responsible for dilution of standards in education, as it had not taken any steps to revise the syllabus?

12)  Why not the state government appoint well trained teachers in all the schools to prepare students for NEET?
