Rajasthan High Court JEE NEET

In a big relief to an Engineering aspirant who was precluded from appearing in the JEE (Advanced) Examination after her Mains results were allegedly fiddled, the Rajasthan HC directed the National Testing Agency to allow her to take the examination, scheduled to be held this Sunday ( September 27, 2020).

The Bench consisting of Justice Vijay Bishnoi further clarified that appear in the examination shall not confer any right in the Petition's favor and directed the NTA not to declare her result, without permission of the court. 

The case relates to a 19-yr-old student from Chittorgarh who claims to have scored 99.4% percentile in the JEE examination which was conducted in January. She argued that she is eligible to take the Advance stage of the Examination. 

However, it is alleged that when she proceeded to apply for JEE Advanced, she found that her score had been "erroneously and maliciously changed" to 59.4 percentile. 

The Petitioner, represented by Advocate Samarpit Gupta, claims that she wrote to NTA, asking them to look into the matter swiftly. However, since no response was forthcoming from the authority and the examination is upcoming in a matter of days, she was constrained to move the High Court.

In view of the facts and circumstances, the Court issued a notice on the plea and ordered thus:

"In the meanwhile, the respondent- National Testing Agency is directed to allow the petitioner to appear in the JEE Advanced Examination, which is scheduled to be held on 27.09.2020, however, the result of the petitioner shall not be declared without permission of this Court and it is also made clear that her appearance in JEE, Advance Examination will not her favor".
