NEET-UG 2024 Results: Grace marks to be excluded from results of 1563 candidates, see details

The Centre has informed the Supreme Court of its decision to cancel the scorecards of 1,563 NEET-UG 2024 candidates who received grace marks. These students will be given the opportunity to take a re-test.

The affected students will soon be notified of their revised scores, which will exclude the previously awarded grace marks. They will then have the option to choose a re-examination. For those who decide against taking the re-test, their results will be based on the original exam conducted on May 5.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has indicated that the re-test is expected to take place on June 23, with the results anticipated to be released before June 30. Additionally, counselling sessions are scheduled to commence on July 6 following the re-test results.

The Supreme Court addressed three petitions today concerning the controversy surrounding the NEET-UG 2024 medical entrance test, which determines admission to MBBS, BDS, and other related courses.

A vacation bench led by Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta heard these petitions regarding the conduct of the NEET-UG 2024.

One of the petitioners is Alakh Pandey, the chief executive of the EdTech company 'Physics Wallah', who has raised concerns about the alleged arbitrary allocation of grace marks by the NTA to over 1,500 candidates. Pandey has requested the court to establish an expert panel under its supervision to investigate the examination process and results of NEET-UG 2024.

This year, 67 students achieved a perfect score of 720 in the exam. Notably, Faridabad in Haryana came under scrutiny due to suspicions of malpractice, with six candidates from a single centre making it to the perfect score list.
