NEET 2024 UG Exam: There is a ruckus in the country regarding the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) exam for admission to medical courses. Many petitions have been filed from the High Court to the Supreme Court regarding NEET, although no clear information has been given by the NTA, the agency conducting the NEET exam, yet. Let's see what has happened so far regarding NEET

What happened when from the exam to the result?
The registration for the NEET exam to be held for admission in medical courses took place from 9 February to 10 April 2024. During this, a total of 24 lakh 6 thousand 79 candidates registered. When the NEET exam was held on 5 May 2024, a total of 23 lakh 33 thousand 297 candidates appeared in this exam. When the results came on June 4, a total of 13 lakh 16 thousand 268 candidates passed this exam.

Is this the whole matter?
The most uproar happened after the result of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test i.e. NEET. This time 67 candidates were declared toppers in the NEET result. 67 students scored 720 out of 720 marks i.e. they got full 100 percent marks, a surprising thing in this was that among these toppers, 6 students were such who had taken the exam at the same exam center. This exam center is in Jhajjar, Haryana. Not only this, but in this exam, some candidates got marks up to 718 and 719, experts say that according to the scheme of the exam, this is not possible. Questions are also being raised about this.

What is the marking scheme?
In the NEET exam, if a candidate answers one question correctly, then he gets 4 marks, if the answer to any question is wrong, then one mark is deducted from the marks obtained. The candidates argue that suppose a student writes answers to all the questions and if even one of them is wrong, then the concerned candidate will get 715 marks. In such a situation, the candidates are asking on what basis the candidates have got 718 and 719 marks.

What has happened so far
First of all, a petition related to this was filed in the Supreme Court on May 17, in which the petitioner demanded the re-conducting of the NEET exam citing a paper leak. The candidates alleged that there were reports of paper leaks from some centers during the NEET exam on May 5. Even after that, the exam was conducted.

The court had issued a notice in this matter and refused to stay the NEET result. Its next hearing will be in July. A petition was also filed in this regard on June 3.

Now a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of Abdullah and Roshan Mohiddin of Andhra Pradesh, in which it has been said that till the matter is being investigated, the counseling of NEET UG 2024 should be stopped and it should be investigated by SIT. Not only this, a petition has also been filed in the Madhya Pradesh High Court regarding this. However, whatever happens next in this matter, the eyes of 23 lakh NEET candidates are fixed on this matter.
