Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader V D Satheesan has sought a comprehensive investigation into the suspicious results of the recently-published NEET results for 2024. In a letter written to the Union govt, Satheesan said many students who have appeared for the NEET examination from Kerala are concerned about this since it would adversely affect their future prospects.
“The NEET results for 2024 have sparked severe concerns about the authenticity of the NEET tests, with many students casting doubt on the procedure. It is extremely alarming to see that 67 students received full marks, with eight of them from the same centre. It should be noted that this figure was just two in 2023 and four in 2022,” said Satheesan in the letter.

“Furthermore, students received 719 and 718 marks out of 720, which is not theoretically achievable given the NEET examination format. As you are aware, the NEET valuation system assigns +4 marks for each correct answer and -1 for each incorrect attempt. If a student attempts all questions and gets only one wrong, he can receive a maximum of 715 marks; if one question is skipped, the maximum is 716 marks. The cut-off mark has also risen drastically to 660 from 610 last year. The fact that the results were announced 10 days before the proposed date casts considerable doubt on the validity of the valuation procedure,” said Satheesan.
“The questionable results have added credence to the earlier allegations regarding the NEET question paper leak. Any malpractice in NEET results will undermine the hopes and dreams of thousands of qualified students. Above all, ineligible candidates would degrade the quality of our healthcare system in the long run, and is deemed to be a great injustice to the generations to come,” he added.
“Hence, a comprehensive investigation is needed into the suspicious results of the recently-published NEET results for 2024,” said the opposition leader.
