Delhi HC Rejects Plea on Separate Panel of Experts to Review NEET 2016 Answer Keys

The Delhi High Court has denied the plea of a student who attempted NEET and challenged the answer keys announced by the CBSE. The court says that reviewing the answer keys is not possible as the answer keys are prepared by particular subject experts. The Central Board of Secondary Education announced the answer keys only when the experts gave the nod. The National Eligibility Cum Entrance Exam has been in controversy since it was announced.

He also said that in this situation he will not be exercising the powers under Article 226 of the constitution.
