The Supreme Court has cancelled the NEET UG 2024 results for 1563 candidates who were given grace marks. NTA will conduct NEET 2024 re-test for these students on June 23. The NEET UG results for students who do not wish to appear for the re-examination will be based on the exam held on May 5. Amidst the NEET UG 2024 controversy surrounding cheating, paper leaks, and irregularities in the results, Education Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan said, that the Central government would take the strictest of actions against functionaries of the NTA if they were found to be involved in irregularities in the conduct of the NEET 2024." The Supreme Court earlier issued a notice to NTA on a plea seeking a fresh NEET 2024 exam. "Sanctity of NEET has affected, we need answers," says SC. The court, however, has refused to put a stay on the NEET counselling.

The NTA also refused that the NEET 2024 paper was leaked. Earlier, Education Ministry at a press conference clarified that the NEET UG 2024 was conducted fairly all over the country and the integrity of the exam was not compromised. The Ministry will set up a panel to review the grace marks awarded to over 1,563 students in NEET UG 2024. The panel would review the NEET results of these students and submit a report within a week.

Earlier, NTA issued NTA notice on NEET UG 2024 results explaining clarification on the cutoffs, compensatory marks for loss of time, toppers, transparency in the examination process and unfair means cases. The NEET exam saw the participation of over 24 lakh candidates and the National Testing Agency (NTA) released the NEET 2024 result 10 days before the scheduled date on June 4. However, the NEET result has left many students and parents dissatisfied and people are asking for justice for NEET 2024 students. The social media platform Twitter is flooded with the NEET scam 2024 news.

NEET 2024 controversy: Will NEET 2024 be conducted again?

All these controversies revolving around the NEET UG result have sparked a conversation on whether will there be a NEET re-exam. While the National Testing Agency (NTA) has not made any official announcement about the re-conduct of NEET UG 2024, there have been multiple petitions filed in the Supreme Court requesting a re-examination due to allegations of paper leaks. The Supreme Court has declined to halt the declaration of results but has agreed to review the case and has issued a notice on the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking a re-conduct of the NEET UG examination.

NEET Result Outrage: Expert’s weigh in on the controversy

NEET 2024 scam controversy in chronological order

All the controversies that are revolving around the NEET 2024 exam are discussed in brief below. We’ll also discuss some of the major irregularities which hint that the NEET 2024 exam paper was leaked and NTA purposely released the result before its scheduled time.

  • NEET Cheating Scam 2024 - Just 2 days before the NEET exam, a serious issue has arisen involving an alleged cheating scam. Parshuram Roy, owner of a foreign education consultancy, and Tushar Bhatt, a school teacher, along with at least 16 students from Gujarat, have been accused of fraud. These individuals allegedly paid Rs 10 lakh each to fraudulently pass the NEET exam.

  • Question Paper Leaks - Despite the NTA's denial of any question paper leaks, rumours have been circulating on social media about compromised exam papers. A video of a man alleging that the NEET 2024 exam paper is leaked, started circulating on social media. The agency however dismissed these claims as baseless, but the controversy continued to surround the exam. Many people demanded NTA for NEET re-exam after this.

  • Unusual Series in NEET 2024 Results - NTA released the full statistics of NEET 2024 on June 4. As soon as the stats were released, it raised the eyebrows of many people due to various irregularities, claiming it NEET result 2024 scam. A record number of 67 students scored 720 marks and achieved AIR 1. For the first time in the history of the NEET exam, these many students have scored 720 marks. Also, out of these 67 students, 8 are from the same examination centre in Haryana.

As if people were not surprised by the 8 toppers from the same centre, what raised the doubt is that the roll numbers of all 8 toppers are in the same series. This unusual pattern has led to speculation about a coordinated cheating effort or a breach in the NEET 2024 exam process. Now people are demanding for NEET re-exam.


  • All India Rank for Counselling rank - 67 candidates have scored AIR 1 in the NEET 2024 exam. Although all these 67 students are rank 1 holders, their All India Rank for Counselling has been declared in the decimal by the NTA. NTA has not stated on what basis these counselling ranks have been distributed among the 67 AIR 1 holders, raising questions about the fair conduct in NEET UG 2024.


  • Controversy on NTA NEET New Tie-Breaking Criteria - With the declaration of the NEET 2024 result, the NTA also introduced a new tie-breaking criteria for NEET 2024. The usual NEET tie-breaking criteria prioritise candidates with higher marks in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, followed by those with lower ratios of attempted incorrect answers.


This year NTA introduced a new tie-breaking criterion, which prioritises candidates with the NEET application numbers in ascending order. This new tie-breaking criteria has been met with criticism from students and educators.

  • Grace marks in NEET 2024 result - Another major issue that has gathered attention from all is the irregular marks of some of the candidates. Many candidates have scored in the range of 717 to 719 due to grace marks in NEET 2024, which is highly unusual as per the NEET exam marking scheme.


As per the NEET exam marking criteria, 4 marks are awarded for a correct answer, 1 mark is deducted for a wrong answer, and 0 marks are awarded for any unattempted question. Now if we follow the NTA’s NEET marking scheme,

Example - Let us suppose If a candidate has answered all the 180 questions correctly, then his/her score will be a perfect score of 720, which is good. But if any candidate has answered only 179 questions correctly, and has either 1 question wrong or unattempted, then the NEET score should be 715 or 716. In short, the highest marks in the NEET exam can be either 720 and the second highest marks can be 716.

  • NTA’s Clarification on NEET scores of 718, and 719 - The NTA has clarified that the grace marks were awarded to candidates who lost exam time, and the normalisation formula was applied to address this issue. But what raises the concern is the NTA has not provided any explanation on how the lost exam time was decided for each student, and how did they measure the lost exam time.


Why the rush in declaring the NEET result 10 days earlier?

The declaration of the NEET 2024 result 10 days before the scheduled result date has raised questions about the credibility of the NTA. The NEET UG 2024 result was supposed to be declared on June 14 as per the information bulletin of NEET. However, to everyone’s surprise, NTA declared the NEET result on June 4, the same date as the Lok Sabha election 2024 results were declared.

Many experts are citing that NTA purposely declared the NEET result on the day of Lok Sabha election result day. They believe that the NTA did this to hide its failure of fair conduct of the NEET exam and the public gets busy with the election results. An expert said, “Had the result been declared as per the scheduled date, the NEET result 2024 scam would have got a lot more attention from the media, but due to the Lok Sabha election, most of the media houses didn’t bother about the NEET scam 2024”.

Is re-NEET 2024 possible?

A writ petition has been submitted to the Supreme Court of India requesting a re-conduction of the NEET UG 2024 examination due to allegations of question paper leakage and irregularity in the NEET results. Despite this, the Supreme Court has rejected the plea to halt the release of the NEET UG exam results.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has affirmed that the examination was conducted impartially and no substantial evidence of a paper leak has been discovered. The potential for a re-NEET 2024 remains unclear as of now and will be determined by the verdict of the petition and any subsequent advancements in the matter. If the Supreme Court of India finds any conclusive evidence regarding the NEET paper leak and irregularities in the result, there is a high chance that the NEET exam may be re-conducted.

The completion to get MBBS seats by qualifying NEET exam is very high. Medical students should explore MBBS Abroad for Indian Students option to not waste any more years. The low MBBS abroad fees are a major relief for Indian students who are applying for the same. MBBS abroad without NEET is also top asked by medical aspirants, however, NMC Guidelines to study MBBS abroad is an important criterion for medical students who are planning to study MBBS abroad.
