Though the coaching institutes have expressed their doubts over these questions, the final decision on these ambiguous questions will be taken by the CBSE.

In case the CBSE approves these mistakes, the NEET Phase II 2016 examinees will be awarded 4 bonus marks for each incorrect question.

Nonetheless, the bonus marks are subject to the decision of the expert committee which would be framed by the CBSE. The answer keys for both the phases of NEET will be officially released by the CBSE on August 7, 2016.

 

Few Possibilities under which CBSE might grant Bonus Marks

The possibilities under which the candidates might be awarded bonus marks are listed below in the table:

Possibility 1

Possibility 2

Possibility 3

Possibility 4

 

Candidate might be awarded bonus marks if he/she has marked either one of the two correct options

Candidate has marked both the correct options in the question

CBSE might grant 4 bonus marks to all the candidates regardless of whether they attempted the question by marking the incorrect answer

The question might be removed and the scores may be calculated against a total of 716 instead of 720

Besides this, CBSE must approve of the mistakes in questions 158 and 24 in set A and award bonus marks to the candidates or remove these queries to ensure a fair assessment.
