NEET Result 2024 Controversy Live Updates: The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday issued notice to the centre and the National Testing Agency (NTA) on a petition for the cancellation of the NEET UG result and noted the sanctity of the medical entrance examination has been affected. However, the top court did not put a stay on the counselling process for undergraduate medical admissions....Read More

The court said, “Sanctity has been affected, we need answers,” and tagged the petition filed by 10 NEET candidates and posted it along with a pending petition to be heard on July 8.

The petitioners have caught the Supreme Court's direction to cancel the NEET UG exam and hold it again. They also challenge the National Testing Agency's decision to award grace marks to around 1,600 students.

Meanwhile, the NTA has issued a statement regarding the viral video of a UP candidate's torn OMR sheet.

There is growing dissatisfaction among students and parents regarding this year's undergraduate medical entrance examination. Some students got 718 and 719 marks, and some scored 720 marks to become toppers, which was possible because of NTA’s decision to award grace marks to them.

In a press conference last week, NTA’s Director-General pointed out that the decision to give grace marks was taken as per a committee's recommendation. It added that those candidates were affected by time loss due to the distribution of wrong question papers and/or torn OMR sheets.

Another four-member committee has been formed to review the issue. The agency said a final decision, including the possibility of a re-examination, will be made after the committee submits a report, which is likely within a week.

She said she replied the NTA on the same email asking for a photocopy of her OMR, which was successfully registered and the image was sent to her within 24 hours.

Showing the OMR sheet she claimed was sent by the agency, Patel said it appeared to her the barcode was torn “intentionally” and all the bubbles (her OMR responses) were clearly visible.

“When we checked it manually, we found that my NEET score was 715, which I also calculated using the final answer key.”

The candidate has filed a petition at the Allahabad High Court and the hearing is scheduled for today (Tuesday), June 11.
