According to reports, the NEET 2020 results of the NEET 2020 topper in the ST Category was shown ‘Failed’. The agency rectified its mistake after the category topper raised the issue with the NTA over the marks shown in the results.
The NEET 2020 Results were declared by the National Testing Agency on October 16, 2020.
Seventeen-year-old Mridul Rawat from Rajasthan was shown a result of 329 out of 720 whereas according to the calculations based on the answer key Mridul secured 650. The same was then challenged based on the recorded response OMR sheet and answer key. The same was also pointed out in a tweet by Mridul following which the NTA rechecked the results and it was found that he secured 650 on 720 on the NEET 2020 exams.
Mridul has secured a rank of 3577 under the general category ranking.
The National Testing Agency committed a mistake in the result sheet of Mridul in which the mark tally was shown as 650 but the marks under the word column stated three Hundred and Twenty Nine Marks. Mridul then approached the NTA to make the corrections and later on the agency released the corrected mark sheet with the marks in the work column having the correct marks.
According to the rank list released, Soyeb Aftab and Akanksha Singh topped the exams with 720 marks out of 720.
