New Delhi, Nov 30 (PTI) The Supreme Court Tuesday dismissed a plea by students alleging discrepancy in a question in the Hindi version of Physics paper in NEET (UG) 2021 after the NTA-appointed expert panel's finding said the answer would remain same in Hindi as well as English.

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud, A S Bopanna and Vikram Nath said it would be beyond the remit of the court to conduct an exercise of re-assessing the correctness of the solutions.

It said the National Testing Agency (NTA), entrusted with the duty of conducting the NEET (UG) 2021 examination, while responding to the apprehensions of the students, had the matter scrutinized again by three subject experts. “Hence, it would not be open to this Court to substitute its own view. In the circumstances, having given our anxious consideration to the submission which has been urged on behalf of the petitioners, we are unable to interfere. The petition is accordingly dismissed”, it said.
