Experts from various coaching institutes in Kota and also in New Delhi have pointed out the ambiguity of the questions, sharing that the answers could not be calculated correctly by the students as the questions did not clearly provide the requisite information. Students who have raised the objections, however, are unhappy that there is no official confirmation yet from CBSE regarding the awarding of bonus marks for the incorrect questions. Students and parents had also raised the issue in their petitions to the different High Courts. However, after the Supreme Court order, there has been no notification regarding the same.
Students had expected the same when the NEET 2017 Answer Keys were released by CBSE on cbseneet.nic.in on June 15. However, CBSE has refrained from mentioning anything of the same accord. It would be well to remember, however, that CBSE in the earlier days after the NEET 2017 exam on May 7 had clarified that the ambiguous questions would be dealt with appropriately after consultation with subject matter experts. Whether or not the 8 marks be awarded remains a question that can easily determine the future of thousands of aspirants who have written the examination.
