NEET 2024 Controversy: Four-Member Panel To Review Results Of Over 1,500 Students 

| Updated: June 8, 2024 17:26

The Ministry of Education on Saturday set up a four-member panel to look into reports of irregularities in NEET-UG medical entrance examination results. Within a week, the committee is required to submit its conclusions. 

Addressing a press conference, National Testing Agency (NTA) Director General Subodh Kumar Singh said, “The panel will meet soon and review the grace marks awarded to over 1,500 NEET-UG medical entrance exam candidates.” 

The agency refuted any anomalies and stated that some of the factors contributing to the students’ improved marks were the modifications made to the NCERT texts and the grace marks awarded for delay at examination centres.

“Our committee met, and they perused all the details of the centres and the CCTVs. They found out that at some centres the time was lost and the students should be compensated for that. The committee thought they could address the grievances and compensate the students. So the marks of some students were increased. Due to that, the concerns of some students have surfaced because certain candidates got 718 and 719 marks,” he said.

The DG stated that all considerations were taken into account before releasing the results. “Out of 4,750 centres, this problem was limited to six centres. And, out of 24 lakh students, only 1,600 students faced the issue,” Singh said.

The NTA DG asserted that there was no compromise on the examination’s integrity across the nation. “There was no paper leak. The whole exam process has been very transparent,” he said.

The step was taken in response to claims that exam results were inflated, resulting in 67 students sharing the first rank.

The NTA DG stated that the panel, which is headed by a former UPSC chairman, will provide its recommendations in a week and that the candidate results may change.
