Attention Aspirants, The High Court of Delhi has dismissed various petitions which had sought quashing of the result of the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2019. These petitions were claiming that several questions had more than one correct answer.
In petitions, It was contended that during the course of the examination, the candidates realized that there are several multiple-choice questions which have more than one correct answer but the results errors were not rectified by the NTA due to which candidates have suffered grossly through the erroneous marking mechanism of NTA.
Apart from this, it was also alleged that the NTA has failed to follow its own pattern of scoring and marking which was mentioned in the information bulletin. Even after the answer key was put up by NTA, it was indicated that two questions had two correct options.
In its response, The NTA said the petitions were completely wrong as no fundamental or legal rights of the petitioners have been violated by the NTA.
After hearing the parties, The High court announced its judgement on Tuesday 9 July. The court passed the common judgement on four separate but identical petitions by various medical aspirants who appeared in the NEET 2019.
The High Court said that if the petitioners were sure of correctness of their answers, they should have marked any of the two correct answers as being the answer to the disputed question. The Court observed that marks have been granted to the candidates who had opted of either of the correct answers mentioned in the final revised answer key.
Best of Luck…!!!
