New Delhi: The marks of six out of the 67 top scorers of the NEET-UG medical entrance exam are likely to be impacted after the removal of “grace marks” awarded for alleged time loss during the exam. These marks, applied based on a formula, could be reduced by 60-70 points, specifically affecting students at a centre in Haryana’s Jhajjar, India Today reported quoting sources.

Notably, the National Testing Agency (NTA) is re-evaluating marks for the NEET-UG medical entrance exam following allegations of irregularities and inflated scores.

This development comes ahead of a crucial Supreme Court hearing on July 8. Earlier, the NTA informed the top court that the decision to award grace markets to 1,563 candidates had been scrapped. These students were offered a retest scheduled to be held on June 23.
