Bengal Government seeks re-examination

Kolkata : Alleging tough 'Bengali' question paper specially in Bengali language, Mamata Banerjee government demanded fresh NEET Examination 2017.

Bengal government on Monday held protests claiming breach of trust by CBSE – governing body responsible for holding the exam.

"The NEET 2017 question set in Bengali was much tougher than that in English," state education minister Partha Chatterjee said at Nabanna.

The state government will consult the medical education directorate and seek a re-examination from CBSE and MHRD, he said.

Mr Chatterjee also alleged that Bengali language paper was 'deliberately' made difficult in comparison to English and Hindi.

This year CBSE has given a completely different set of questions for regional languages, including Bengali. 

Bengal had 92 centres and 56,079 allotted candidates across five cities. Of them, around 40,000 students took the test in Bengali.
