NEET-UG retest results announced, ranks of all candidates revised

PTC News Desk: On Monday, the National Testing Agency (NTA) released the NEET-UG 2024 retest results. For 1,563 students who were initially given grace marks because they claimed to have lost time during the main exam on May 5, a retest was administered.

The NTA gave impacted students the chance to retake the exam following a significant uproar about the grace marks. Eighteen students from seven different centers took the retest on June 23.


On June 28, after the retest, the 813 applicants (out of 1,563) who took part had their recorded responses, scanned OMR sheets, and preliminary answer keys available for scrutiny. The final answer keys for the retest have been released on the NTA website following expert examination of these difficulties.

Concerns that the grace marks awarded inflated scores—with multiple candidates from the same center getting a perfect 720—led to the decision to hold a retest. Claims of anomalies in the medical entrance exam shocked the NTA.

A revised rank list for all NEET-UG 2024 applicants as well as the updated results for the 1,563 retested candidates are included in the announcement. By utilizing their roll number and birthdate, candidates can view their results on the NTA website.

This development opens the door for NEET-UG 2024 admissions to be processed further; counseling is scheduled to start on July 6. Out of the approximately 25 lakh students who qualified this year, more over 13 lakh will be competing for approximately 1.8 lakh MBBS and dental seats.

In the meantime, the CBI has filed a case for cheating and criminal conspiracy and is looking into the purported irregularities in the NEET-UG exam.

A preliminary inquiry by the CBI revealed that the accused had encouraged applicants who were prepared to utilise illegal methods to get high test results to choose a private school in Godhra, Gujarat, as their exam location. Several arrests have been made in connection with this case.
