The central government recently filed an affidavit with the Supreme Court. Claiming that canceling the exam would be “repugnant” and “seriously endanger” lakhs of honest candidates. The NTA gave full points to dozens of students in the exam, including 67 top scorers in this year’s medical examination.

NEET UG 2024 SC: The NEET UG paper will be canceled.

Lawyers for one of the petitioners began arguments. He claimed that they are demanding the cancellation of the exam due to paper leaks and manipulation of the OMR sheet. Including impersonation of the candidate and cheating. The Center and the National Testing Agency (NTA) recently urged the court that canceling the exam without any evidence of breach of confidentiality would have a “serious impact” on lakhs of genuine candidates.

SC wants petitioners to file submissions by Thursday.

All lawyers for petitioners who wish to request a re-test must file a common set of materials. Materials of no more than 10 pages by Thursday. SC inquires about involving a cyberforensic team, utilizing AI to determine the number of wrongdoers. And exploring the prospect of re-testing for them.

Did the NTA acknowledge the paper leak?

The attorney for the petitioners stated, “The Bihar police claim that the NTA did not follow standard SOPs. The fault is systemic.” It is vast in size. According to the NTA, we cannot yet establish if the error is systemic or not, or what the scope of the fraud is.

According to one paragraph of the NTA, all of this appears to have occurred on a minor scale. They are saying two things. Appeals in the Supreme Court demand cancellation of the exam, an order for the NTA to perform a re-test, and a court-monitored investigation into ‘irregularities’.
