  1. For Section A (MCQs):

In Section A, candidates are required to choose the correct or most suitable option as their response to each question. In the event of any discrepancies arising during the key verification process, they will be addressed as follows:

  • Selecting the correct or most appropriate answer will earn candidates four marks (+4).
  • Opting for an incorrect option will result in a deduction of one mark (-1).
  • Leaving a question unanswered will not be awarded any marks (0).
  • When multiple correct options are identified, candidates who select any of them will receive four marks (+4).
  • If all options within a question are correct, all candidates who attempted the question will be granted four marks (+4).
  • Even if none of the options in a question is correct, or if a question is found to be incorrect or is removed, all candidates who made an attempt will receive four marks (+4), regardless of whether they answered it or not.

 

  1. For Section B (MCQs):

In Section B, candidates are required to respond to any 10 questions out of the 15 provided. Should a candidate choose to answer more than 10 questions, only the first 10 answered questions will be taken into consideration for evaluation. Negative marking is applicable to Section B, and any anomalies or discrepancies that arise following the key verification process will be handled as follows:

  • Providing the correct answer will result in four marks (+4).
  • An incorrect response will lead to a deduction of one mark (-1).
  • Unanswered questions will not receive any marks (0).
  • When multiple correct options exist in a question, candidates who mark any of them will be awarded four marks (+4).
  • If all options in a question are correct, all candidates who attempted the question will receive four marks (+4).
  • In cases where a question is identified as incorrect or is removed, all candidates who attempted the question will be awarded four marks (+4). This may be due to human or technical errors. Candidates are advised to take into account any constants provided in the questions when performing calculations.

 

NEET 2024 is a traditional paper-and-pen test, where candidates mark their responses on a specially designed machine-readable OMR sheet using a ballpoint pen provided at the examination center. It’s essential to emphasize that any tampering with the OMR sheet at any point will lead to the candidate’s disqualification for a period of three years.

The test’s duration is three hours and twenty minutes. For PwBD (Persons with Benchmark Disabilities) candidates, who may have physical limitations affecting their ability to write, an additional compensatory time of one hour and five minutes is granted for an examination that originally spans three hours and twenty minutes (03:20 hrs). This additional time is provided whether or not the candidate uses a scribe.

Following the principles outlined in the National Education Policy (NEP), NEET (UG) – 2024 is conducted in various languages, including English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
