NTA announces retest result, revised rank list for NEET-UG

New Delhi, Jul 1: The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced the revised rank list for the medical entrance exam NEET-UG on Monday, officials said.

The revised result was announced after a retest was conducted for candidates who were earlier awarded grace marks to compensate for the loss of time as the exam on May 5 started late at six centres.

For the retest conducted at seven centres on June 23 following a Supreme Court order, 48 percent of the 1,563 candidates did not appear.

NTA officials reported that 813 of the 1,563 candidates appeared for the retest while the others opted for the marks without the grace.

The decision to conduct the retest and release a revised rank list comes as part of the NTA’s commitment to ensuring fairness and transparency in the examination process.

Candidates who participated in the retest were hopeful for an improvement in their scores and rankings, potentially increasing their chances of securing admission to prestigious medical colleges.

The NEET-UG exam is a critical gateway for students aspiring to pursue undergraduate medical and dental courses in India, and any disruptions or delays can significantly impact their prospects.

The NTA’s prompt response to the Supreme Court order and its efforts to rectify the situation underscore the importance of maintaining the integrity of the examination system.–(PTI)
