In its latest ruling, the Supreme Court has allowed students who have completed 12th grade in private registration to be considered for admission to MBBS courses through NEET counselling. According to the NMC, this is outlined in the revised guidelines for medical education. The Supreme Court bench comprised of Justices PS Narasimha and Sudhanshu Dhulia dismissed the petition. Madhya Pradesh native Srishti Nayak, who took admission to class 11 in 2019-20, filed a petition with the Supreme Court. The student who appeared in this year's NEET UG exam passed in the reserved category. Students who completed their studies through private registration in 12th grades were instructed by the Director of Medical Education of Madhya Pradesh to upload their 11th grade certificates as well. Petitioner, however, was not given an 11th class certificate by the school to which he was initially admitted. A student asked the court for an order allowing him to enroll. Prior to the new guidelines, only regular students were allowed to write the NEET. In the revised criteria published this year, this was excluded. In its judgement, the court noted that the admission was denied due to the lack of a school certificate proving that he had passed class 11. Court ordered the state government to admit the petitioner instead of allotting the seat to someone else.
