NEET UG 2024 Exam is a medical entrance test which is conducted by the NTA across the country to offer admission to India’s top government and private medical colleges and universities for aspirants who want to study medicine to become doctors in future.

This year approximately 24 lakh candidates have participated in the NEET UG Exam 2024 with the 20% increment of the volume of the candidates as last year 20 lakh candidates have appeared in the NEET UG 2023 Exam. Read the below-mentioned points to understand the NEET UG 2024 Exam Pattern:

  • The Exam was conducted in India and outside of India as well at various test centres.
  • The test was held in 13 languages at various test centres located in 571 cities in India and 14 cities outside of India.
  • The medical entrance test was conducted online on 5 May 2024.
  • The test was organized for 720 marks and participants were required to attempt only 180 questions out of 200 questions to score 720 marks.
  • 1 right answer carried 4 marks.
  • 1 wrong answer will deduct -1 marks in the result, and that’s how a candidate will lose 5 marks for 1 incorrect answer.

Controversy 1: First Time 67 Toppers in the History of NEET Results

The first controversy of NEET UG Result 2024 is that in the history of NEET UG Results, it has been reported that NTA has simultaneously declared 67 toppers who have scored 720/720 marks among all the 24 lakh participants.

NEET Result 2024 Controversy

However last year in 2023 20 lakh candidates appeared in the NEET UG Exam 2023 and NTA declared only the candidate’s name who scored 720 out of 720 marks in the result. Among these 67 toppers, 8 toppers are from the same test centre and have scored 720 marks out of 720, their roll number sequence is also the same.

Controversy 2: 718-719 Grace Marking

This time 718-719 marks have also been seen in the candidate’s results and this also caught the attention of everyone, and this question was raised to the NTA. Because if out of 180, a candidate had given 179 right answers and 1 wrong answer, then 5 marks should be deducted for 1 wrong answer as per the minus marking scheme and the candidate should get 715 marks out of 720.

NTA comments on this that they gave grace marks to some candidates due to time loss on centres and this is the second controversy. This time NEET has given grace marks to the candidates, and this has never been seen before in the history of NEET results. However, NTA has not disclosed the candidate details who got the grace marks in NEET UG Result 2024 and has not disclosed the grace marking ka criteria.

Controversy 3: Paper Leak

Here is another controversy, the question paper for NEET 2024 was leaked before the exam. However, NTA has confirmed there is no leak of question papers and the investigation committee is working on this. NEET Result 2024 was released on 4 June 2024 but till now the matching of leaked papers and NEET UG 2024 paper is ongoing and no final comment has been given on it.

Controversy 4: Early Result Declaration

4th controversy is that this year NTA has released NEET Result 2024 before the scheduled date, and this also has never happened before. According to the NEET UG 2024 Schedule, the result was to be released on 14 June 2024 and suddenly NTA delivered the result 10 days before on 4 June 2024.

Controversy 5: Rank Difference

The 5th controversy is that even though the scored marks of some candidates are the same in NEET results, there is a lot of difference in their rank. However, the final answer is yet to come from NTA.

Current Situation of NEET Result 2024 Scam

In this way, many allegations have been made against NTA regarding NEET Result 2024. As per the latest update, there will be an investigation committee or grievance committee of 4 people (ex-chairman of UPSC (name not disclosed) who will be taking over the result investigation.
