NEET exam alleged disparity sparks controversy in Meghalaya

Guwahati: The recent administration of the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) in Meghalaya has sparked controversy, with student unions in the state urging a re-examination due to alleged discrepancies. Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has reassured the public that authorities are actively addressing the issue with the National Testing Agency (NTA), which oversees NEET exams nationwide.

In a joint plea to Education Minister Rakkam Sangma, the Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) and the Jaintia Students’ Union (JSU) emphasised the necessity of a retest, pointing to instances of confusion and inconvenience experienced by students during the exam.

Reports have emerged suggesting that students were given two sets of question papers labeled as MNOP and QRST, causing confusion among candidates and raising concerns among exam organizers.

Expressing concern about the mental strain on candidates who spent time attempting questions from the incorrect set, the student bodies highlighted the seriousness of the situation. With over 400 students taking the NEET exam at an examination center in Jowai, the district headquarters of West Jaintia Hills, doubts have arisen about the fairness of the examination process.

Additionally, the KSU and JSU highlighted logistical challenges faced by candidates, including delays in submitting admit cards, which further complicated matters. Urging for a re-examination to safeguard the interests of student candidates, the unions stressed the importance of a fair and transparent assessment process.
