NEET Controversy and Re-examination: What about Students?


The Centre informed the Supreme Court that the grace marks awarded to 1,563 NEET-UG 2024 students will be cancelled, and they will have the opportunity to retake the exam on June 23. The court accepted the Centre’s decision, stating that a re-exam will be conducted for these students, and those who choose not to retake the exam will have their results based on their original scores without the additional marks.

Vikram Nath and Sandeep Mehta said, “A subsequent Committee has made recommendations after deliberations which are placed before us. According to the recommendation, scorecards of 1563 candidates will be cancelled and stand withdrawn. A re-exam will be conducted for these 1563 candidates. The results of those who don’t wish to appear will be based on their actual marks without compensatory marks.”

The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the NEET (UG) exam, previously known as the AIPMT, as a uniform entrance exam for undergraduate medical programs across India. A huge number of students appear in this exam every year with the hope of pursuing their dream career. But massacres like this may hamper their mental peace. As the cutoff went so high this year due to the faulty results many students who took the exam felt hopeless despite getting good marks.

Deserving students felt helpless after the announcement of the result.  It’s not easy to clear the NEET exam and the students who scored enough to get into a decent college may feel left out which may lead them towards lack of self-confidence.  The situation made the students anxious about their future and this may affect students’ mental health and well-being. After studying so hard the students who didn’t get a chance to their dream college and some other non-deserving candidates may be frustrated and they may lose their trust in the system.
