NEW DELHI, April 14: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will release NEET 2018 admit card soon. The official website of the CBSE says that NEET admit cards will be released in the second week of April 2018, but no official information or update has been received on this so far.

While today is the last day before CBSE’s second week deadline passes, there is a strong possibility that National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) admit cards may even be released after the Delhi High Court (DHC) final verdict in the on-going case against NEET eligibility criteria. The DHC final hearing is scheduled for April 16, 2018.


Delhi High Court Pending Verdict 

The case in question is a result of writ petitions filed against revised eligibility criteria of NEET announced by the Medical Council Committee (MCI) earlier this year, which barred open school students, candidates above 25 years of age, those had a gap year between Class 11 and 12 and those with Biology as an additional subject in Class 12, from appearing in NEET 2018. Consequent to these petitions, DHC gave an interim relief to all these barred candidates by allowing them to fill the NEET application forms. However, the decision of whether or not they will be allowed to sit for the test was pinned with its final verdict on students’ pleas against revised MCI NEET eligibility rules. DHC struck the same chords in a recent order passed on April 11, 2018, where it made clear that CBSE isn’t allowed to reject any NEET applications from candidates previously rendered ineligible by revised NEET eligibility criteria, until it releases the final verdict on the matter.

Now, considering the given situation and the fact that NEET bulletin was published long before DHC interim order, it is possible that CBSE is waiting for the pending DHC verdict before releasing the admit cards to save itself and the students from the chaos of releasing the admit cards for all and then retracting it for a few.
