“Sorry, we are not inclined to entertain,” the bench said.
The apex court had on 4 September dismissed petitions, including the one filed by ministers of six opposition-ruled states, seeking review of its 17 August order which had paved the way for holding NEET and JEE exams.
The JEE Advanced AAT 2021 exam will be held on 18 October, with the results scheduled to be declared on 22 October
The JEE Advanced results will include details such as subject-wise marks, total mark cut-off, CRL rank, and so on.
