NEET 2024 Result: NTA Awards Grace Marks To Students, Explains High Scores

NEET UG Result 2024 Declared: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced that candidates who reported losing time during the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET UG 2024) have been given grace marks. A total of 67 candidates have achieved NEET All India Rank (AIR) 1 with a percentile score of 99.997129. The NEET 2024 results were released on Tuesday.

"NTA received few representations and Court Cases from the candidates of NEET (UG) 2024 raising concerns of loss of time during the conduct of the examination on 05.05.2024. Such cases/representations were considered by NTA and the normalisation formula, which has been devised and adopted by the Hon'ble Supreme Court, vide its Judgment dated 13.06.2018, was implemented to address the loss of time faced by the candidates of NEET (UG) 2024," the NTA stated.

"The loss of examination time was ascertained and such candidates were compensated with grace marks. So, candidate's marks can be 718 or 719 also," the NTA explained.

The statement follows concerns raised by several candidates regarding the removal of the category-wise NEET toppers' marks for the scheduled caste (SC) category in the most recent NEET result notification. Candidates also sought clarification on scores of 718 and 719. 

"@NTA_Exams just show us the procedure regarding supreme court normalisation of marks judgement and the steps you followed . If you were aware that grace mark awarded than how much grace mark and to what number of student. Kindly throw light in it," an X user posted.
