The Central Board of Secondary Education has recently clarified that the board has no role in deciding the eligibility criteria for the medical entrance examination i.e. NEET. The board has instructed the applicants to submit all the grievances to the MCI (Medical Council of India) and requested to read the information bulletin on NEET 2020 website very carefully before submitting the grievance in any form.
The clarification from Central Board of Secondary Education came after receiving several complaints from NEET 2018 applicants regarding the restriction of open school students and students appearing in class 12th board examinations with biology as an additional subject.
CBSE has clearly declared that it has no role to play in deciding the eligibility conditions. The NTA (National Testing Agency) shall be responsible to conduct the NEET Undergraduate (UG) examination on the basis of the eligibility criteria declared by the Medical Council Of India (MCI).
