National Testing Agency (NTA) today addressed a press conference to elaborate on issues such as many candidates securing higher marks and a larger number of candidates getting the top rank.

At a press conference, National Testing Agency (NTA) Director General Subodh Kumar Singh announced the panel’s formation, stating, “The panel, headed by a former UPSC chairman, will submit its recommendations within a week, and the results of these candidates might be revised.”

The Union Ministry of Education has constituted a four-member panel to revisit the results of over 1500 students who were given grace marks as compensation for loss of time during the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET-UG) for admissions to undergraduate medical courses, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced.

Around 1,600 candidates from six centres were distributed wrong question papers and two to three candidates got torn OMR due to which they had less time to attempt the exam.

As per available information, six candidates have emerged as toppers of the NEET UG exam with a score of 720 and two have gone up to 718 and 719 marks due to the compensatory marks, the NTA chief said. He clarified that these marks are not because of the number of correct and incorrect answers given by them but due to the scale formula.
