Candidates have alleged that question number 2 of Section A in Physics paper is erroneous and the word “amplitude of current” has been omitted. As a result, candidates who appeared for the examination in Hindi had different answers from those who appeared for NEET UG in English.
The plea challenges the question paper and the answer key, alleging “discrepancy and patent error” in question no 2 of Section A (Physics) wherein while translating the same from English to Hindi, the words “amplitude of current” had been omitted.
Plea says that due to this omission, the candidates who attempted the question on the basis of the Hindi translation arrived at a different answer as compared to the candidates who attempted the question on the basis of the English question. “Hence discrepancy in the said question has put the Hindi Speaking students/states at a disadvantageous position pushing them back by thousands of years and jeopardising their future,” the plea read.
NEET UG 2021 was conducted on September 12 and the result was declared on November 1. A total of 15,44,275 students appeared in the examination out of which, 8,70,074 students qualified the medical entrance examination.
