Karnataka NEET will be held on May 18. This will give an unfair advantage to karnataka students as 

1. karnataka students have 13 extra days to study for NEET

2. They will know the style, level and format of questions, weightage etc that would offer them huge advantage over rest of India students

3. This completely negates the sanctity of uniformity of evaluation across the country.

NEET in that case should be postponed for all of India to May 18 so that all the aspiring students can avail of the extra study time n share a common platform.
