NTA Assures Supreme Court: NEET-UG 2024 Paper Leak Did Not Impact Exam’s Integrity

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has assured the Supreme Court that the alleged malpractices in the NEET-UG 2024 exam, including paper leaks in Godhra and Patna, did not impact the sanctity of the entire exam. This statement came in an affidavit filed by the NTA on Wednesday, responding to the court’s directive to address the issue.

The Supreme Court had previously, on Monday, asked the NTA to provide details on steps taken to identify beneficiaries of the leak, the first incident of the leak, the dissemination methods, and the time between the leak and the exam on May 5. In response, the NTA stated in its affidavit that it had conducted an assessment of student performance at the affected centers in Godhra and Patna. The analysis revealed that the performance of students at these centers was not abnormally high or significantly different from the national average.

Furthermore, the NTA highlighted in the affidavit that the performance of students at the concerned centers did not result in scores high enough to qualify for admission to top medical colleges. The NTA emphasized that the data analysis clearly indicates the alleged malpractices did not compromise the integrity of the exam or provide undue benefits to students at the affected centers.

On Monday, the Supreme Court acknowledged the existence of the leak, stating that the compromise of the exam’s sanctity was undeniable. However, the court is still determining the extent and nature of the leak. The case will be heard again on July 11.
