CUET-UG Exam at Kanpur Center Postponed Due to Wrong Paper Distribution


The CUT-UG exam, which was held at a center in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, will now take place on May 29 due to the distribution of an incorrect question paper, the National Testing Agency announced on Friday. Additionally, the agency refuted rumors that the question paper was leaked at the center.


“Maharana Pratap Group of Colleges in Kanpur will host an exam center on May 29 for more than 220 students. A senior National Testing Agency (NTA) official stated, “This decision was made in response to the distribution of an incorrect question paper on May 15.

“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 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.

The third edition of the country’s largest test is being conducted in hybrid mode for the first time. The exams of four subjects — Chemistry, Biology, English and General Test — were scheduled for May 15.

The offline tests will be conducted between May 15 and May 19, followed by computer-based tests for other subjects between May 21 and May 24.
