Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MLA Palanivel Thiaga Rajan on Saturday said that the standardised testing is unfit to decide the future of students and added that such tests have been discredited all across the globe.
The statement from the DMK leader comes just a day ahead of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Undergraduate) (NEET) exam.
Last month, the Supreme Court refused to entertain a fresh batch of petitions seeking directions to postpone the NEET 2020 examination. A fresh batch of petitions had been filed before the top court seeking to postpone the examination scheduled in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Thereafter, a review petition was filed by ministers from six opposition-ruled states against its order, which was also dismissed by the apex court.
