Earlier, Careers360 had done a comprehensive analysis of NEET 2016 answer keys released by leading coaching institutes which raised doubts over multiple wrong questions. Experts from coaching institutes had also suggested discrepancies in question or answer options in more than 3 questions in both the phases. However, CBSE has only added 4 marks for one question. While the revised answer keys of both the phases suggest that it is question number 9 against which CBSE has added the bonus marks, it is not clear whether it relates to the same question across both the phases.


CBSE has also issued cut-offs for 15% All India quota seats after declaring the revised answer keys.  Hence, the final cut-off is not expected to be affected by the revised answer keys.
