Controversy Surrounds NEET Papers in Rajasthan-Chhattisgarh: Allegations and Protests Emerge

Allegations of NEET UG Paper Leak: NTA Responds

Recent allegations on social media by students and some politicians claim that the NEET UG exam paper has been leaked. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also tweeted, holding the government accountable for this issue. However, amidst all this, the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts the exam, has responded, stating that the allegations of paper leak are false.

The senior director of NTA, Sadhna Parashar, stated that a fake paper was indeed circulated, misleading students. The distribution of this fraudulent question paper occurred at Girls Higher Secondary Model School in Savai Madhopur. Additionally, Hindi medium students were mistakenly given English medium papers, causing confusion among students. Despite the efforts of invigilators, many students went ahead with their papers from the examination centers. Therefore, any leaked paper may not have affected the exam as it had not begun until then.
