In a surprising move, the National Testing Agency (NTA) cancelled the UGC NET June 2024 exam just a day after it was held. The Ministry of Education made this decision based on inputs from the National Cyber Crime Threat Analytics Unit, which indicated possible compromises in the exam's integrity.

UGC NET June Cancellation

The UGC NET exam, held on June 18, 2024, in two shifts across various cities, is a crucial test for determining the eligibility of candidates for Assistant Professor and Junior Research Fellowship positions in Indian universities and colleges. The sudden cancellation has left many students who took the exam deeply disappointed.

This decision comes in the backdrop of recent controversies surrounding the NEET 2024 examination, where allegations of a paper leak due to NTA's mismanagement surfaced. The Ministry of Education emphasizes its commitment to ensuring transparency and fairness in exams. A new examination is likely to be conducted, with details to be shared soon.

The Ministry has also handed over the investigation of the UGC NET exam integrity concerns to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for thorough scrutiny.

In related developments, the issue of grace marks in the NEET (UG) 2024 examination has been fully addressed, and a detailed report regarding irregularities alleged in Patna has been sought from the Economic Offences Unit, Bihar Police. The government has stated that its top priority is protecting students' interests and ensuring fair exams, promising strict action against anyone compromising the process.

Students who appeared for the UGC NET exam on June 18, just a day before the cancellation announcement, have expressed their frustration and disappointment, as they now face additional uncertainty and the need to re-prepare for the fresh examination cycle.
