Days before the entrance medical exam, NEET 2021, social networks are full of news about an alleged paper leak. Twitter is awash with reactions to an alleged medical school admissions scandal. The reports came after a television news channel aired an episode about an investigation that revealed a mob behind them. However, none of the reports have a questionnaire claiming to be the next exam questionnaire.

In particular, during the three-hour broadcast, the network says it “does not confirm” the claims. When approached by news18.com officials, they denied receiving such complaints and said they were rumors. “It is false. Students are advised not to believe such news,” said officials who said there has also been no irregularity or breach in the security systems.
The rumors may have taken flight as the NTA has reissued admission cards for NEET. The NTA says the revised admission cards were released as some students had trouble with the postcard images.
Additionally, a violation was reported at one of JEE’s main test centers. In the JEE scam, a private training institute had allegedly hacked one of the JEE Main test centers. According to CBI investigations, hackers used to attempt exams on behalf of students while they were sitting in a distant location. According to the CBI investigation, this was a job scandal with training centers demanding Rs 12 to Rs 15 lakh per student.
Notably, the NEET questionnaire was allegedly leaked in 2017 and five people were arrested in the case. The group of people used to promise admissions for students to medical schools under a management fee, according to the police investigation in 2017.
The news comes after months of protests from a section of students demanding the postponement of NEET. After the Supreme Court dismissed the petition to postpone the medical examination, the examination will now take place according to the schedule on September 12. Officials said there will be no delays in the exam.
