NEET UG Result 2024: Centre Suggests Re-Exam for 1,563 Candidates on June 23

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Undergraduate (UG) result for the year 2024 has been a topic of discussion ever since it was announced in October last year. However, things took a dramatic turn when the Supreme Court recently directed the Union Health Ministry to conduct a re-exam for 1,563 students who appeared for the exam in three languages – Hindi, Assamese and Gujarati.

According to reports, these candidates were given different sets of question papers, resulting in disparity among candidates while attempting the same paper. This issue was brought to light by a student named Anshul Sharma from Assam, who filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts the NEET exam.

The Supreme Court took cognizance of this matter and directed the Centre to conduct a re-examination for these 1,563 students on June 23. The court also stated that the results of these students will be declared along with the other candidates who appeared for NEET UG 2024.

As per reports, this decision has been welcomed by the affected students and their parents, who were concerned about their future due to the disparity caused by different sets of questions.

The NEET UG exam is considered to be one of the toughest entrance exams in India for admission into medical and dental colleges. This year, a record number of over 16 lakh students appeared for the exam, which was held on September 12 last year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Out of these candidates, around 7.6 lakh have qualified for admission to MBBS/BDS courses across various government and private medical colleges. The result was declared on October 23, 2024, and the counselling process for admission is currently underway.

The NEET UG exam has always been a subject of controversy due to its difficulty level and lack of uniformity in question papers. However, the Centre’s decision to conduct a re-exam for the affected candidates shows their commitment towards ensuring fairness and transparency in the examination system.

This move has also brought some relief to the students who were eagerly waiting for their results but were uncertain about their chances due to the discrepancies caused by different sets of questions. The reconducting of this exam will not only provide an equal opportunity to these candidates but also set a precedent for fair conduct of exams in the future.
