  1. NEET 2013 also had different papers… Karnataka had different paper.. All exams like GRE, JEE, AIIMS, JIPMER use different question papers to avoid leak… TamilNadu needs to become a new country and avoid NEET… And all the lazy students who dont study and want no NEET results or REEXAM….. obviously found the NEET paper difficult.. because they were provoking bull instead of studying..

  2. Reservation is not a violation of an Article 14……..then why NEET 2017……Dual standard…….. If reservation in the Education,Job,politics everywhere is not a violation of an Article 14…..then why in the NEET 2017 different papers is a violation of an Article14?…………..Due to reservation there is no equality of all the students as well as the citizens even though having an equal marks or qualification……..Before presenting a false pretex of violation of an Article 14 in NEET 2017 to the courts and giving the judgements about the NEET……the judiciary.authority and the government must completely remove the reservation system from the cons ution as well as from the governance… is better and in the interest of the country that the judiciary and the government can identify those selfish elements who have misinterpreting and misusing the Indian laws and rules and pe ioning in the courts to cancel and abolish the holy NEET……Vandematram.
