Marking the Response (Answer)

  • Correct: For NEET 2019, candidates must use Blue/Black Ball Point Pen to darken the appropriate option. Answers marked with a pencil will not be evaluated.

  • Incorrect: Answers darkened with a pencil or improper darkening of the circle will be treated as an invalid response. If more than one circle is darkened it shall be treated as a wrong way of marking and no marks will be awarded instead, a mark will be deducted.

Example of question

  • Change: Candidates must be careful before darkening the appropriate circle as no further changes can be made in answer once marked. Use of eraser or whitener on the answer sheet is not allowed as the answer sheets are machine gradable and it may lead to wrong evaluation.

  • No attempt: A candidate who wishes not to attempt any question, he/she should not darken the circle meant to mark the response.

  • Rough Work: Candidates cannot do any rough work on the answer sheet. All rough work is to be done in the test booklet itself.
