“There was no paper leak, the invigilators mistakenly distributed English medium question paper to the Hindi medium students during the General Test examination on Thursday at a center in Kanpur. The NTA will re conduct the exam for over 220 affected students on May 29,” said a senior NTA official.

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

A similar incident had taken place in relation to NEET UG exam, when at one centre in Rajasthan's Sawai Madhopur, Hindi medium students were handed English medium question papers. Their exam was conducted on the same day itself i.e May 5, 2024. NTA had refuted the reports of the paper leak in NEET UG exam too.

The third edition of the country's largest test is being conducted in hybrid mode for the first time. The exams of four subjects -- including Chemistry, Biology, English and General Test -- were scheduled on Wednesday.
