The re-examination was conducted from 2 pm to 5:20 pm by the National Testing Agency for 1,563 candidates only.

These students were awarded grace marks in the NEET-UG 2024 initial exam to compensate for the time loss at the above six-mentioned centers.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test- Undergraduate examination is conducted every year to provide opportunities for students interested in fields like AYUSH, BDS, MBBS, and any other related courses in private or government institutions. 

The initial examination of NEET-UG took place on May 5, 2024, in which more than 24 lakh candidates appeared. The results for the same were out on June 4. 

However, a re-examination was conducted by NTA due to many allegations of question paper leaks and other irregularities in states such as Haryana and Bihar.
