NEW DELHI: National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the CMAT 2021 result along with the final answer key yesterday, April 9, 2021. Since the result announcement, students are distressed and anxious as even after submitting objections against the provisional CMAT answer key for the wrong questions, no re-evaluation was done and no grace marks were given for the wrong questions. CMAT aspirants have taken it to social media, Twitter, and Facebook, sharing their concerns and asking the authority to re-evaluate the CMAT 2021 result or conduct a re-exam.

CMAT 2021 was held on March 31 in two shifts and around 10-12 questions were wrong in the exam. This was highlighted by the students over social media after the release of the provisional CMAT 2021 answer key. The students submitted their objections against the discrepancies in the CMAT answer key by paying Rs 1,000 per question and also asked NTA to re-evaluate and rethink the marking.

NTA CMAT 2021 result: Students tweet about discrepancy in CMAT scorecard

It costs 50 marks in Slot 2 and more than 25 marks in Slot 1 due to negligence. How to pay Rs 1,000 for 15 incorrect questions? We have a serious concern about the normalization of results. Besides, every time they charge 1,000 for every question they challenge, and it is not fair if the number of mistakes is high, students lose money for their own mistakes!

Requesting the NTA for grace marks for the CMAT exam wrong questions, an aspirant tweeted that Many questions were wrongly presented, be it in options or in the question itself.

Another student tweeted, "Please write about the faulty marks in CMAT. even after charging 1000rs from students, NTA hasn't bothered to rectify mistakes"

"How Can You Give Unjustified Results there was around 12 question wrong.", the CMAT aspirant said.

Another aspirant tweeted, "I would like to bring into consideration about NTA for delaying CMAT then too not conducting it properly."

"Disappointed!!! NTA has failed to conduct and execute a fair examination (CMAT)." CMAT aspirant said.

Another CMAT aspirant said, "I request you please don't play with our future."

"Corruption level is at its best. NTA is asking rs1000 per question. Clearly, 15questions are wrong from slot 1 and slot 2 combined.", the Candidate tweeted.

One of the candidates tweeted, "The CMAT results are out and is really very confusing it's something beyond student's expectations even they asked questions with wrong options."

"Sir there is a huge discrepancy in CMAT result 2021 and the result is very confusing and looks fraudulent. Please look into this matter.", the CMAT applicant said.

CMAT students said, "Re-exam of CMAT-2021 - Sign the Petition!"
