The top court's order comes as a relief for 12 lakh medical aspirants who had given the exam. 
The order came on the plea by CBSE and others challenging the 24th May order of the Madras High Court which had restrained the Board from publishing the results of after a batch of pleas alleged that a uniform question paper was not given in the examination and there was a vast difference between the ones in English and in Tamil.
