In this year 2022 Students who took the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG) on Sunday had alleged that there were not only errors in the exam paper but they were mishandled by friskers during the checking process prior to the exam.

While last year, there were reports of a cheating scam last year, too this year many cases of mismanagement during the exam have been reported. 

From asking to remove bra of 100 women students in kernels to change in the question paper, the errors of NEET conducted by National Testing Agency , constituted by Ministry of Education Union government know what are the errors in NEET 2022:

Error 1 : Impersonators tried taking exam on behalf of students   

A gang of exam solvers was busted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as they were trying to take the medical entrance exam – NEET 2022 on behalf of students. 

While the FIR has been filed against 11 people, as many as eight have been arrested so far. 

Among those nabbed, six are exam solvers, according to CBI. The ongoing investigation has so far revealed that the gang would ask students to submit their log-in IDs and password with them. At the time of downloading the admit card, the exam solver gang would morph the admit card.

To ensure one seat in medical colleges or to get enough marks in NEET, the gang members would demand at least Rs 20 lakh. 

Of these about Rs 4-5 lakh would be given to medical college students or coaching institute experts who would disguise as a student and write the exam, the investigation revealed.

Error 2 : 2022 Question paper interchanged  

In an exam center in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar district, students claimed that the question papers for Hindi and English medium were interchanged. 

Further, an NTA official has confirmed the same. The official added that although the question papers were mixed-up, as a result in those region students were given extra time to complete their papers.

Post the exam, students and parents gathered in front of the exam centre at the Army Public School in Sri Ganganagar to protest. 

A NEET aspirant claimed the exam started at 2 pm but after around 4:30 pm, people from the exam centre informed they were mistakenly given the bilingual question paper meant for Hindi medium students. 

While Hindi medium students received the question paper meant for English medium students.

The student said he completed the entire exam in two and a half hours, but the authorities took away everyone’s question paper and replaced it with the one meant for English medium students. 

The question paper was the same as the bilingual one, and students were able to finish it by 6 pm, the aspirant added. 

The exam, however, has now been cancelled and the students will have to retake it in another time slot.

Error 3 : Chemistry paper error: 

One question in the chemistry paper allegedly had an error. According to experts, one of the questions in the chemistry section in NEET 2022 had no correct answer out of the given options. Overall, the question paper was tougher than last year, claimed experts and students. 

All sections featured questions that required a deeper understanding of the subjects.

“NEET 2022 chemistry had eight questions of which as many as six were statement-based while two were assertion-based. Last year only two questions were statement-based in Chemistry,” said Saurabh Kumar Chief Academic Officer at Vidyamandir Classes.

Error 4 : Students not allowed to wear hijab: 

One of the female aspirants of NEET 2022 alleged she was not allowed to wear hijab during the exam.

The student further alleged that even though she did remove her hijab, she was ill-treated by the invigilator during the exam.
