The National Board of Examinations (NBE) has filed a police complaint with the local Police, Cyber Cell & Crime Branch of Delhi Police against the tout/agents who were calling the NEET PG aspirants and demanding money from them to increase their rank in the NEET PG 2018 results.
Through a public notice, the National Board of Examinations has informed that such a complaint has been filed.NBE further stated that it has decided to file a police complaint after it received complaints that tout/agents are alluring and misleading the candidates to help them in securing a good merit position/marks if money is paid to them.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that NBE issued an advisory stating that “NEET-PG 2018 shall be declared by NBE solely on the basis of performance of the candidates on the examination day. Candidates are advised not to get misled by any false or bogus claims regarding obtaining a rank in NEET-PG 2018.”
NBE had clarified that NBE does not make any phone calls to any candidate or issues any communication regarding the change of rank obtained in any of the exams conducted by NBE or for any other such thing which is against the provisions of law.
The organisation also clarified on the procedure of declaration of rank and tie-breaker criteria for the exam
NBE has declared the result of NEET-PG 2018 on 23/01/2018 in respect of 128917 candidates who had appeared in the exam. In the result, NBE has provided the marks obtained by each candidate. Tie-breaking of candidates having same marks & the same number of correct responses in NEET-PG 2018 shall be done on the basis of marks obtained in the MBBS professional exams.
This is unlike previous NEET-PG and AIPGMEE where the only date of birth was utilized as a tie-breaking criteria.
Due to candidates making incorrect MBBS marks entries in the online application form and in order to ensure that the tie-breaking is accurate, NBE has given a onetime final opportunity to all the applicant candidates to make corrections in their MBBS marks through the online portal and submit their scanned MBBS Professional mark sheets as a proof of the same for the purpose of verification by NBE.
“Tie-breaking and generation of the merit list shall be done thereafter in accordance with the criteria mentioned in the Information Bulletin.”
“NBE shall also publish the number of questions attempted correctly and incorrectly by the candidates at the time of declaration of the merit list,” stated the press notice
