The order was passed after an in chamber hearing today in the Apex Court.
"We have carefully gone through the review petitions and the connected papers. We find no merit in the review petitions and the same are accordingly dismissed," said the bench also comprising Justices BR Gavai and Krishna Murari.

The petitioners were West Bengal law minister Maloy Ghatak, Jharkhand finance minister Rameshwar Oraon, Rajasthan health minister Raghu Sharma, Chhattisgarh food minister Amarjeet Bhagat, Punjab health minister Balbir Singh Sidhu and Maharashtra education minister Uday R Samant.
The petitioners jointly filed the review petition seeking a direction for cancellation of NEET-UG and JEE-Main this year because of pandemic.
The review petition also sought a direction that the earlier order of the Apex Court dated August 17 be modified.
