The development has come amid controversy that the “arbitrary” award of grace marks led to a shocking surge of top scorers during the NEET, with several claims being made of malpractices, cheating and irregularities in the conduct of the exam.

The Court was informed today that all 1,563 candidates who suffered as they got less than the allotted time to write NEET 2024, will be given the option for the re-test.

If they choose to take the re-exam, their earlier NEET score will stand cancelled (and the new score after the re-exam will be counted instead).

If these students choose not to take the retest, their original scores would remain but without counting grace marks awarded earlier on account of the loss of time.
