| Updated: June 6, 2024 11:55

The NEET UG results 2024 declared yesterday by the National Testing Agency (NTA) have created a huge uproar, with students expressing concern about the method of marking. There is also open discontent among students who believe that the integrity of the results has been compromised.

Over 24 lakh students appeared for the NEET-UG exam, which is one of the largest exams in India in terms of applicants. The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the exam. It is a single entrance test for admissions to MBBS and BDS colleges across India.

The social media platform X was abuzz with students venting their frustration. They demanded to know how a candidate gets 718 or 719 marks in an exam where the maximum marks are 720 and each question weighs 4 marks with 1 negative mark for the wrong answer.

The NTA clarified that it has awarded grace marks to the candidates who had raised concerns about losing time during the entrance test dated May 5, 2024. The NTA said that they adopted the normalisation formula, which was devised by the Supreme Court, in its judgement dated June 13, 2018.

However, the major furoure is about candidates from serial no. 62 to serial no. 69 in the toppers list, who might have given exams at the same centre at about the same time. Students wonder, how can 8 students in a single centre find a place in the toppers list when there are 5000+ centres across India.

23,33,297 students appeared for the exam out of a total 24,06,079 registered, out of which 13,16,268 were successful. Despite the cutoff being very high, 67 students have got All India Rank 1 with 99.997129 percentile

Students cry foul as 8 from the same centre find their names in the toppers list. Out of which 6 have received 720 out of 720 marks, the other two have scored 719 and 718. Students demand a reexamination, alleging a scam.
