NEET candidates not given papers in Assamese

Students sitting for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) at a centre in Dibrugarh on Sunday faced undue harassment due to shortage of question papers, with many candidates also claiming that they were not provided with question papers in the language of their choice.

Though the examination was scheduled to be held from 10am to 1pm, it had to be conducted in two sessions at Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalaya due to shortage of question papers.

Moreover, many students left halfway through the exam because they were reportedly not given question papers in Assamese which was their language of preference. P4
