NEET-UG Row: Re-Exam for 1563 “Grace Marks” Students on June 23

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has informed the Supreme Court about its decision to “cancel the scorecards” of 1563 NEET-UG 2024 candidates who received grace marks. The NTA has further disclosed that these 1563 students will have the opportunity to take a re-test.

The affected students will soon be notified of their revised scores, which will exclude any grace marks awarded previously. They will then have the choice to opt for a re-examination. For those students who opt not to take the re-test, their results will be based on the original exam conducted on May 5.

Re-Neet on June 23 for 1563 Students:

NTA has indicated that the re-test is anticipated to occur on June 23, with the results expected to be released before June 30. Furthermore, counselling sessions are set to commence on July 6 following the outcome of the re-test.

A vacation bench led by Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta heard these petitions regarding the conduct of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Undergraduate (NEET-UG) 2024. The vacation bench addressed three petitions concerning the controversy surrounding NEET-UG 2024 medical entrance test today (June 13), which determines admission to MBBS, BDS, and other related courses.

Among 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 more than 1,500 candidates. Alakh Pandey has requested the court to establish an expert panel under its supervision to investigate the examination process and results of NEET (UG) 2024.

“No Paper Leak”- Dharmendra Pradhan:

Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday refuted any allegations of paper leaks in NEET UG 2024 examinations. He said that there is no evidence of paper leak in the medical entrance exam. 

Talking to the reporters, Pradhan said, "NEET-UG has not shown any indication of a document leak. The NTA is a very credible body; the allegations of corruption against it are unfounded."
