Though the coaching institutes have raised doubts over the questions, the final decision on these doubtful questions will be taken by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). If CBSE accepts the mistakes, 4 bonus marks may be awarded to NEET 2016 Phase 2 examinees for each wrong question. However, the bonus marks would depend upon the decision of the expert committee, which could be constituted by CBSE. The exam authority is will release its own official answer keys for both the phase of NEET on August 7.

To help students we bring them a few possibilities under which CBSE might grant them bonus marks:

Possibility 1: The candidate has marked either one of the two correct options in question 67 of set A and its corresponding questions in the other sets. In this case, it might be either option A or option D, as per the coaching centres.

 

Possibility 2: The candidate has marked both the correct options in the question.

 

Possibility 3: While there is less possibility of this, but the CBSE might decide to grant 4 bonus marks to all candidates irrespective of whether they attempted the question to chose a wrong answer.

 

Possibility 4: In this case, the CBSE might delete the question altogether and calculate the scores against a total of 716 instead of 720.

 

Apart from this, CBSE might either consider the mistakes in questions 158 and 24 in set A and offer students bonus marks or delete these queries too to ensure equal weight.
