Candidates were allowed to make challenges from 29 May 2024 to 01 June 2024 (up to 11:00 A.M). The Question Paper and recorded responses (scanned copy of OMR Answer Sheet) along with the Answer Key were displayed on the website for verification by examinees. After verification by the Subject Experts, the Revised/Final Answer Keys were published on the website on 03 June 2024.

What was the role of the Grievance Redressal Committee in giving the Compensatory marks for time loss and why was it done?

Few Writ Petitions were filed by the candidates of NEET (UG) – 2024 before the Hon’ble High Courts for loss of exam time in the NEET (UG) – 2024 exam at few Centres. Accordingly, a Grievance Redressal Committee was formed which considered the grievances/representations based on factual reports of the functionaries and CCTV footage from concerned exam Centres. To compensate for the loss of time, such candidates were compensated with compensatory marks.

How were the Compensatory marks calculated?

The loss of examination time was ascertained and such candidates were compensated with marks based on their answering efficiency and time lost, as per the mechanism/ formula established by the Hon’ble Apex Court, vide its judgment dated 13.06.2018 in W.P. 551 of 2018. 1563 candidates were compensated for the loss of time.

How can any candidate score 718 and 719 marks in the NEET (UG) – 2024?

Due to the compensatory marks, two candidates happened to secure 718 and 719 marks. 

Why the Answer Key was changed from one correct option to multiple correct options for a Physics Question?

To evaluate candidates’ understanding of nuclear composition and related changes, a specific question was designed for NEET (UG)- 2024 using the NCERT Physics Textbook for Class 12 (Part II). The question included Statement II: “Atoms of most of the elements are stable and emit their characteristic spectrum,” making option (Statement I correct, Statement II incorrect) the initially correct answer.

Upon receiving 27,020 answer key challenges, including 13,373for this question, experts reviewed the ambiguity due to differences in the old and new editions of the NCERT textbook. Based on expert opinion, the answer key was updated to reflect that Statement II should be: “Atoms of each element are stable and emit their characteristic spectrum,” as per the old textbook.

Consequently, two options were considered correct. This was also done as a policy mentioned in the Information Bulletin of the NEET (UG) – 2024 i.e. “If more than one option
is found to be correct then Four marks (+4) will be awarded to only those who have marked any of the correct options”.

Why did a greater number of candidates get full marks in the NEET (UG) – 2024?

The number of candidates who appeared in 2023 was 20,38,596, while the number of candidates who appeared in 2024 increased to 23,33,297. The increase in candidates naturally led to an increase in high scorers due to a larger pool of candidates. The NTA received 13,373 challenges to the provisional answer key of one question in Physics. Due to the differences in the old and new editions of the NCERT textbook, the Subject Expert(s) held that two options be taken as correct in place of one option for this

Out of the 67 candidates who got 720/720 marks, 44 are on account of the revision in one Answer Key of Physics, and 06 are on account of compensatory marks for loss of time. This revision led to increased marks for many candidates, contributing to the high number of perfect scores. This led to getting the full marks for 44 candidates in the NEET (UG) – 2024. This adjustment aimed to address inconsistencies in NCERT textbooks, ensuring candidates were not disadvantaged by factual discrepancies.
