NEET UG Paper Leak Fake: NTA Denies


Conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is a nationwide undergraduate examination used to determine the eligibility of students for admission into courses such as MBBS, BDS, BAMS, and others.

Recently, there have been claims of a paper leak (neet ug 24) which sparked a controversy on the internet on Sunday May 5th. The testing agency claims that no such leaks have been found and all the papers have been accounted for but various speculations are being made as to the validity of the remark.

The agency in an official statement said,”The Social Media Posts pointing towards any paper leak are completely baseless and without any ground.”

NTA officials however claim that an incident did occur at the Sawai Madhopur center in Rajasthan where the papers from the students were snatched before the culmination of the exam. But no linkage of any sort should be made of this to the incident of papers being leaked. The tests were conducted properly and under supervision of the authorities in all the four thousand seven hundred fifty centers across five hundred seventy one cities, claims the organization.

The organization quickly thwarted any fake news that led the masses to believe that there had been a leak, the agency plans on taking strict action against people who spread false information and confirmed that there was no case of any paper being leaked beforehand. “Some of the students left the center forcefully before the time was over and that led to some pictures being uploaded over the internet but it was of no use as the exams had already begun all over the country”, claims the National Testing Agency. So no one could have benefited over the papers that were circulated this late.

This year’s NEET UG 2024 exams saw a record-breaking number of registrations, more than 24 lakh students from all over the country registered for the medical entrance exam which is recorded as the highest with over 10 lakh male students, and around 13 lakh female students. The NTA noticed this increase in numbers and included  multiple centers in smaller cities, particularly in the Northeast, Puducherry, Jammu and Kashmir, and other states.
