KOLKATA: Union minister Prakash Javadekar has said question papers in vernacular languages for the all India entrance examination for medical colleges, NEET, will be a mere translation of the question papers in English.
The Human Resource Development minister was replying to a question about a recent complaint by West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee that students appearing for medical entrance examination in vernacular languages this year had faced tougher questions than the ones set in English and Hindi.
"The vernacular question papers for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) — all-India entrance examination for medical colleges — will just be translation of the question paper in English," he told reporters here yesterday.
Asked about 'one nation one test' policy for engineering courses, the Union minister said, "We are yet to take a call on this issue. It is in discussion stage."
