Therefore the candidates who challenge the answer key will get their challenge fee refunded, but the addition of bonus marks for the wrong questions are uncertain as of now.

If bonus marks are given then, if a question was wrong, or no option was correct, then all students got bonus marks of +4. However, in this regard, the decision of NTA is the final one.
