    NEET Result Row: Re-Test For All 1,563 Candidates On June 23, Says National Exam Body

    The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced on Thursday that a re-test for all 1,563 NEET UG candidates, who received grace marks due to the distribution of the wrong question paper, torn OMR sheets, or delay in the distribution of OMR sheets, will be conducted on June 23. The results will be declared on June 30.

    "Subsequent to the Supreme Court's observations on the report of NTA's High Powered Committee, the grace/compensatory marks awarded to all 1,563 students have been withdrawn. A re-test for these candidates will take place on June 23, 2024," the NTA stated in an official notice.

    The national exam body further added that it will issue a public notice shortly and contact these 1,563 candidates via email to ensure they receive the official communication.

    The scorecards of 1,563 NEET-UG 2024 candidates seeking admission into medical colleges will be scrapped after they were given grace marks for a wrong question, the Centre told the Supreme Court today.

    The decision follows allegations of widespread irregularities and unfair marking in the national medical entrance exams.

    "A committee meeting was held on June 10, 11, and 12 to investigate the allegations. Based on the committee's recommendations, the scorecards of the affected candidates will be cancelled, and a re-examination will be held for these students," the Centre told the Supreme Court today.
