NEET Result 2024: Supreme Court Approves Re-Test for 1,563 Candidates Given Grace Marks

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of India accepted the central government's proposal to conduct a re-test and invalidate the results of 1,563 candidates who were awarded grace marks in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2024. This decision came after a petition challenged the National Testing Agency's (NTA) move to award compensatory marks to candidates from six centers due to lost exam time. The court also approved the cancellation of the existing scorecards of these affected candidates. The re-examination is likely to take place on June 23. Candidates who opt not to take the re-test will have their original scores, without grace marks, considered. The NTA has indicated that the re-test results will be announced before June 30, with undergraduate medical counseling starting on July 6.

The Supreme Court also addressed petitions alleging malpractices in the NEET exam, tagging these with petitions scheduled for a July 8 hearing. One notable petitioner is Physicswallah CEO Alakh Pandey.

The NEET UG results announced on June 4 faced significant backlash from parents and students, who demanded an investigation and re-examination, citing concerns over a paper leak at certain centers and inflated marks due to compensatory scoring for time loss.

In a prior hearing, the Supreme Court remarked on the compromised integrity of the exam, urging the NTA to provide explanations.

Although the NTA denied any paper leak and maintained the exam's integrity, it formed a high-power committee to reassess the decision to award grace marks. Last week, the agency explained in a press conference that the decision to award grace marks was influenced by a previous Supreme Court judgment addressing similar time loss issues, though it did not disclose the exact formula used.
