NTA Reports Incorrect Question Paper Distribution at Kanpur Center

CUET UG 2024: National Testing Agency (NTA) reports incorrect question paper distribution at Kanpur center. Re-examination planned for 220 affected students.

CUET UG 2024 Exam:
The National Testing Agency has refuted accusations of a ‘paper leak’ during the current common university entrance examination for undergraduate admissions (CUET-UG) in Kanpur. The agency has explained that incorrect question papers were mistakenly distributed at a specific center in the city. To address this issue, the National Testing Agency has decided to re-conduct the exam for the 220 students who were affected on May 29th.

Allegations of a paper leak arose at an examination center in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh on Thursday. However, the testing agency clarified that it was a case of incorrect distribution of question papers.

According to a senior National Testing Agency official, the incident occurred when invigilators mistakenly handed out English medium question papers to Hindi medium students during the General Test examination. As a result, the NTA will be conducting a re-exam for the 220+ affected students on May 29.

In addition, the National Testing Agency will also be rescheduling the CUET UG exam for Delhi exam centers on the same date, as the exam scheduled for May 15 had been postponed at short notice due to unavoidable circumstances.

A similar incident occurred in connection with the NEET UG exam, where Hindi medium students at a center in Rajasthan’s Sawai Madhopur were given English medium question papers. This incident took place on May 5, 2024, and the National Testing Agency denied any reports of a paper leak in the NEET UG exam.

The third edition of the country’s largest test is currently being conducted in hybrid mode for the first time. Exams for four subjects – Chemistry, Biology, English, and General Test – were scheduled for Wednesday.
