I want to assure the students that all their concerns will be addressed with fairness and equity. No student will be at a disadvantage and no child’s career will be at jeopardy.”

“Counselling process of NEET will be underway soon and it is of utmost importance to move ahead in this direction without any confusion,” he added.

Yesterday, the Centre submitted to the Supreme Court that the scorecards of 1,563 candidates granted compensatory marks in the undergraduate medical entrance examination will stand cancelled and a re-examination is to be conducted for these students.

This happened while the court was hearing petitions challenging the award of the grace marks to the 1,563 candidates to compensate for “loss of time”.

This year, a number of irregularities have come forward in the NEET-UG results, raising concerns among aspirants and parents.
