NEET exam controversy; Top 6 candidates from one center; Students request for re-examination

As the NEET UG 2024 results are out, there is a controversy on social media regarding the results. Parents and students have expressed their concern over the fact that 67 students secured first marks (720 marks) and alleged irregularities in the examination centres.

Specifically, it has been found that six of the All India Rank 1 scorers belong to the same examination center in Haryana and their roll numbers are identical.

Activists who say that the 720 out of 720 marks from the same center shows that the NEET exam paper was leaked, demand a detailed probe by the National Examinations Agency into the anomalies before the counseling begins.

The mark cards of students scoring 718 and 719 are also doing the rounds on social media, parents are questioning how they can score 718 and 719, with four marks deducted for each NEET question and one mark for each wrong question.

Sharing the mark sheet of two students, a user on site X wrote, “How can you get 718 & 719 marks out of 720 if the assessment schemes are not changed. This is probably the biggest scam by NDA.”

The National Examinations Agency, in a statement, said on May 5 that it had received some legal cases and submissions from NEET candidates regarding time loss concerns.

“The normalization system developed and approved by the Supreme Court in its 2018 judgment considered such cases/representations to address the loss of time suffered by the candidates. After determining how much time was lost, these candidates were given mercy marks. Hence, their marks could also be 718 or 719,” the National said. As stated in the examination agency’s report.

Meanwhile, due to question paper leaks, last-minute mercy marks and wrong information in the NEET 2024 results, a significant number of medical aspirants have demanded a re-run of the NEET exam.

However, amid these controversies, the National Examinations Agency has vehemently denied any rumors of NEET question paper leaks. The National Examinations Agency has dismissed the baseless rumors circulating on social media about the wrong examination papers. The NDA claims that these reports are untrue and that the examination process was safe and impartial.
