Supreme Court defers NEET-UG 2024 hearing till July 18

New Delhi/IBNS: The Supreme Court on Thursday deferred the hearing of alleged paperleak and irregularities in the NEET-UG 2024 till July 18, media reports said.

The court posted the matter to July 18 after it resumed hearing on the allegations on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the central government on Wednesday told the top court that it found "no abnormalities" in the examination.

Earlier, the counselling for the NEET was deferred until further notice.

The controversy arose when 67 students achieved perfect scores of 720 in the NEET-UG exam.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) said this happened as some candidates were awarded grace marks due to a faulty question and logistical delays in paper distribution at some centers.

However, a Bihar Police investigation revealed that the exam paper had been leaked to a select group of candidates.

The NEET-UG exam, taken by nearly 24 lakh aspiring medical students, was held on May 5, and the results were released on June 4.

Despite the NTA's efforts to manage the situation, allegations of a widespread leak continued with protests and legal actions nationwide.
