NEET UG 2024: NTA Changes Tie-Breaking Rule, Removes Computerized Draw Policy

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has changed the tie-breaking procedure for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test – Undergraduate NEET-UG 2024. This adjustment, which was disclosed soon before the March 16 extended registration deadline, will have a significant impact on how candidates’ rankings are decided in the highly anticipated exam.

NEET UG 2024: Month after, NTA reverts back to its old tie-breaking policy

The computerised draw of lots rule for breaking ties has been removed, and the original rule of allocating ranks based on the number of correct and erroneous answers will be utilised instead.

Traditionally, a computerised drawing of lots was used to break ties in scores amongst candidates. However, the NTA has made the decision to return to the first approach this year. Using this technique, the number of right and wrong answers provided by the applicants is used to determine rank allocation.

According to reports, the number of candidates registered for the NEET UG 2024 exam this year has surpassed 2.5 million, including approximately 1.3 million female applicants. As a result, there are a lot of expectations for the exam. Those hoping to enrol in top medical and dental universities around the country must now comprehend and navigate the modified tie-breaking system in order to establish their ranking. Also, the stakes are enormous because the performance in India’s single largest entrance exam affects admittance to prominent medical institutes.
