The National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) is India’s biggest medical entrance exam. Almost all universities accept NEET scorecards.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducted the NEET (UG) 2024 on Sunday, 05 May 2024, in pen-and-paper mode in 13 languages.

For now, NTA has dismissed all claims of paper leaks as baseless and without any ground. However, it accepted that there was a problem at the Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan centre. The question paper was mistakenly distributed in different languages. Some candidates left the exam hall with the question paper and leaked it on X (formerly Twitter). As per NTA, the test was already underway at the other centres when the incident occurred, and a re-exam was conducted for all such candidates.

There is no news about the NEET 2024 cancellation yet. There will be a re-exam for candidates who missed the exam because of a mistake on the authority’s end.

Official Statement by NTA,

NEET (UG) 2024 has been conducted successfully by the National Testing Agency (NTA)
across 4750 centres in 571 cities on 5th May 2024. This year, registration was highest, with over 24 lakh students registering, with over 10 lakh male students and over 13 lakh female
