Another Plea Filed in Supreme Court Seeking Recall of NEET-UG Results, Fresh Exams

New Delhi: A new petition has been submitted to the Supreme Court, seeking the recall and re-conduct of the National Entrance cum Eligibility Test – Under Graduate (NEET-UG) 2024 due to alleged discrepancies in the results.

Filed by Abdullah Mohammed Faiz and Dr. Shaik Roshan Mohiddin, advocates for students in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the plea highlights irregularities in the awarding of grace marks and statistically improbable high scores.

The petitioners argue that the process for granting grace marks lacks transparency, with no disclosed criteria or list of beneficiaries. They pointed out an unusual pattern where 67 students from a single centre achieved perfect scores of 720, raising suspicions.

Additionally, the plea challenges the provisional answer key released by the National Testing Agency (NTA), noting that over 13,000 students contested the key, citing discrepancies based on information from the textbook.

The petition stresses that cheating undermines meritocracy and equal opportunities, potentially leading to severe consequences in the medical field due to unqualified professionals.

This petition joins previous complaints filed with the Supreme Court alleging a leak of the May 5th NEET exam. The Court issued a notice on May 17th but allowed the results to be declared.

In response, the NTA has formed a committee to review the grievances of 1,600 NEET 2024 candidates.
