Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has denied any leak of NEET 2016 Phase II question paper after media reported that a group of people were arrested by Uttarakhand Police for allegedly selling NEET question paper a day in advance to the July 24 NEET exam.

“It is reiterated that news of attempt of leakage of question paper was false and far from facts,” the CBSE said on July 25.  The Board said that the content of the question paper sold by the group were completely different from the original NEET question paper. An expert committee of CBSE cross-checked both the question papers to reach to this conclusion.


“The material seized by the Uttarakhand Police from the persons involved in cheating were provided to CBSE and the same was matched by the Board with the original question paper of NEET-II and found that the seized material is entirely different from the original question paper of NEET-II,” the Board officials said. They added that “This was an attempt made by some unscrupulous elements to cheat the candidates on false promises.”

NEET phase II was conducted on July 24, 2016 across the nation for admissions to approximately 30,000 MBBS and BDS seats under 15% All India Quota, Private/Management/NRI Quota Seats in all Private Medical / Dental Colleges or any Private/Deemed University.

NEET 2016 results will be announced as scheduled on August 17, 2016.
