On Wednesday, CBSE has made it clear that any ambiguity observed in the National medical entrance exam is strictly an academic issue and will only be looked into by the respective experts of the subjects concerned.
This comment was issued by CBSE against the backdrop of the concerns raised by the experts and candidates, which said that there were at least 4 incorrect questions in the NEET exam which was held on Sunday, May 7 2017.
There was one question which had two correct options while the other question had all the options wrong.
Another question to which objections were raised was from Physics which read "which of the following pairs of compounds is isoelectronic and isostructural?"
"It should rather have been 'Which of the following pairs of compounds is isostructural and has same number of valence electrons?," a Physics teacher said.
A senior CBSE official said, "As far as ambiguity in questions is concerned, it is purely an academic issue which will be addressed by the subject experts. For this purpose, the official answer key will be hosted for making challenges by the candidates."
"The date of hosting answer keys will be intimated on NEET website," the official added.
This year NEET faced criticism from around the nation due to application of bizarre dress code due to which female candidates had feel humiliation before sitting in the exam.
