Key Details of NEET SC Hearing:

  • Retest Option: The government has proposed a retest for the 1,563 candidates who were disadvantaged by time loss during the exam. These students can choose to sit for a new examination or retain their original scores minus the grace marks initially given.
  • Impact of the Retest: If students opt for the retest, their original NEET scores will be canceled, and only the new scores from the retest will be considered. For those who decide against the retest, their original scores will remain valid but will exclude the grace marks.
  • Supreme Court Proceedings: A Bench of Justices Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta was informed about the retest plan, which emerged from a committee meeting held on June 12. The court’s order noted the committee’s recommendations, emphasizing transparency and fairness in addressing the issue.
  • Grace Marks Controversy: The controversy stems from the arbitrary awarding of grace marks, which some argue led to an unusual increase in top scores. Allegations of malpractice, cheating, and irregularities have marred the NEET-UG 2024 examination process.
  • NTA’s Response: The National Testing Agency (NTA) confirmed that the retest for the affected candidates will be conducted on June 23, with results expected by June 30. Following the release of these results, medical college counseling will commence on July 6.
