NEET UG Result 2024 Highlights: NTA Announces Re-Exam for Affected Candidates

The Supreme Court is currently reviewing petitions that call for the cancellation and re-examination of the NEET-UG 2024 due to allegations of a paper leak and issues with grace marks allocation. It was revealed during the proceedings that the scores of 1,563 NEET-UG 2024 candidates have been invalidated. The National Testing Agency (NTA) informed the court that a re-examination for these candidates will occur on June 23, with results and counselling expected by June 30.

A vacation bench of Justices Vikram Nath and Ahsanuddin Amanullah is hearing the primary petition, filed by Shivangi Mishra and nine others on June 1, before the results were announced.

The ongoing court hearing also involves three other petitions that seek the cancellation and retest of the NEET UG 2024 due to alleged anomalies in the allocation of grace marks. Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta are addressing these petitions, which additionally request a stay on the counseling process. These petitions challenge the NEET-UG 2024 results, citing widespread irregularities and the NTA's decision to award grace marks to over 1,500 candidates due to "loss of time."

Earlier, the Supreme Court issued notices to the central government and the NTA regarding these petitions. While acknowledging that the integrity of the medical entrance exam had been compromised, the court did not halt the undergraduate medical admissions counselling process. The court remarked, "Sanctity has been affected, we need answers," and scheduled the next hearing for July 8.

The petitioners argue for the cancellation and re-examination of the NEET UG, claiming the NTA's decision to award grace marks to around 1,600 students has caused widespread dissatisfaction among students and parents. The NTA has addressed concerns about the exam, including a viral video showing a UP candidate's torn OMR sheet.
