Addressing the reports of question paper leakage in NEET 2 held on Sunday, CBSE issued a statement here on Monday saying that the leaked question paper was a fake and aspirants have nothing to worry about. Now there are several questions parents and students themselves are asking to be clarified by the board but CBSE has assured that the paper leaked on Saturday, a day before NEET was not original. We’ll keep you updated here on latest news.
Now that the reports have solidified that NEET-2 was leaked yesterday at least at one place, how would it affect the candidates? and moreover, CBSE has yet to issue an statement on the topic. It is speculated that 40k students who wrote the exam in Ramnagar on 24th July, will be affected somehow. Maybe a re-test will be held only at that one centre where it was leaked or maybe there is something more to the depths of NEET paper leak news. We’ll find out soon but for now, CBSE’s words are awaited.
Amid the reports coming from across all examination centres, one horrifying news that popped out from Ramnagar, Uttarakhand is that the NEET 2 question paper has been leaked. As per the latest updates, Police has arrested 3 persons from Ramnagar in the alleged involvement in the leakage of question paper. The Uttarakhand Police has also arrested two more person from Haldwani.
Around 44 thousand students had appeared for NEET 2 in Ramnagar where they have agreed to the reports. These students claimed that the question paper has indeed leaked and the culprits have sold the question paper to an amount as much as Rs 10 lakh to Rs 50 lakh. It has been reported that these accused were in contact with students from Delhi, Patna, Ranchi, Lucknow among other major cities.
CBSE had issued strict guidelines for aspirants to appear in the nationwide entrance test, which also attracted criticism from communities. Last year, the major medical entrance examination AIPMT governed by CBSE was also leaked, forcing the authorities to re-conduct the test. While it was speculated that the board had taken all the precautionary steps for leak-proof conduct of the test, it seems that some people were again able to ditch the Board and leak the question paper before any candidate could take the test.
