NEET-PG Exam Postponed Amid Controversy Surrounding Alleged Leak

| Updated: June 23, 2024 13:20

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) on Saturday announced the postponement of the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test-Post Graduate (NEET-PG), a day before the test was scheduled to be conducted, due to mounting concerns over reports of paper leaks in national-level examinations. 

The government stated that in order to make sure the NEET-PG test processes continue to be fair and robust, a thorough review would be conducted. 

The government stated in a statement that the action was taken as a precaution. “Taking into consideration the recent incidents of allegations regarding the integrity of certain examinations, the ministry has decided to undertake a thorough assessment of the robustness of processes of the NEET-PG entrance examination for medical students,” the ministry stated.

The ministry further stated that a new exam date will be announced as soon as possible. Over 150,000 students had registered to take the test. 

“The Ministry of Health sincerely regrets the inconvenience caused to the students. This decision has been taken in the best interests of the students and to maintain the sanctity of the examination process,” it added. 

The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS), an independent organisation under the health ministry, administers the NEET-PG examination. After graduating, medical students take the test to be eligible for postgraduate studies.

This is the second significant test that has been rescheduled, following the Joint CSIR UGC-NET exam. The National Testing Agency (NTA), which is already under criticism for anomalies in the NEET-UG test and the cancellation of the UGC-NET exam owing to a leaked exam paper on the darknet, conducts the latter.
