Supreme Court Disposes of Plea Challenging Grant of Grace Marks to 1563 Candidates by NTA

In a significant ruling, the Supreme Court has disposed of a plea challenging the grant of grace marks to 1563 candidates by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The Court has ordered a retest for these candidates, effectively cancelling and withdrawing their current scorecards.

The Court has provided an option for those who do not wish to appear for the retest. In such cases, their results will be declared without the compensatory marks. This decision brings clarity to the situation, which had been under dispute for some time.

Additionally, the Court has issued a notice in pleas filed by Alakh Pandey, also known as Physics Wallah, and Abdullah Faiz. These matters have been tagged with other related cases and are scheduled to be heard on July 8, 2024.

The bench, comprising Justice Vikram Nath and Justice Sandeep Mehta, delivered this verdict, bringing a sense of closure to the affected candidates. The retest and the option to opt out will provide a fair opportunity for the candidates to demonstrate their abilities without the influence of the disputed grace marks.
