CUET-UG: Wrong paper distributed in Kanpur, re-exam on May 29

The Common University Entrance Test - Undergraduate (CUET-UG) is going to be reconducted on May 29 for a centre in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur where the wrong question paper was distributed today, Friday, May 17, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has informed.

As per a report by PTI, the NTA has also denied reports of the question paper being leaked at the centre.

"The exam will be conducted on May 29 for over 220 students at an exam centre at Maharana Pratap Group of Colleges in Kanpur. This decision was taken after a wrong question paper was distributed on May 15," a senior National Testing Agency (NTA) official said.

"There was no paper leak, the invigilators mistakenly distributed English medium question papers to Hindi medium students," the official added.

The NTA will also conduct the CUET-UG exam for Delhi centres on May 29 as the May 15 exam was postponed a night before, citing unavoidable reasons.

A similar incident occurred while conducting the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET UG) exam on May 5, during which, Hindi medium students at one centre in Rajasthan's Sawai Madhopur were handed English medium question papers.

Their exam was later conducted on the same day.

The NTA had also refuted reports of a paper leak in the exam, PTI added.
