NEW DELHI, Jan 12: The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed a petition seeking conduct of a second round of NEET-UG, saying the court cannot interfere in a policy decision by the educational agency.

Why should we enter into an arena where tangible relief cannot be granted? In this case, we are not exercising appellate but advisory jurisdiction here," said a Bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Bela M Trivedi.

Senior advocate Sanjay Hegde drew a similarity between the students who appeared for NEET and JEE and said the JEE students have four chances to take the exam whereas in NEET students get only one chance.

"These are different testing silos, candidates would be different and volume would be different. It's a matter of policy. Whether it is convenient for the students or not. It's a matter of policy," said presiding judge Justice Bhat.
