As per the complaints of students appearing for NLAT regarding technical glitches, NLSIU decided to conduct a re-test. The exam started at 12: 30 pm but the entire paper got leaked on social media by 12:52.
The National Law School of India University(NLSIU) issued a statement that the malpractice of candidates copying and circulating questions on social media “does not affect the integrity of the exam as questions were already available to candidates after login” following complaints of NLAT re-test leak.
The Press Release was as follows :
“On September 14, the University offered students who complained of technical difficulties the opportunity to appear for an additional slot. The test paper was accessible to candidates after they logged in to the platform. Thereafter, it appears that some candidates have copied the questions and circulated this on some messaging apps/emails after logging in.
While this is a malpractice under the NLAT proctoring guidelines, it does not affect the integrity of the exam as questions were already available to candidates after login.
Our technology platform tracks and compares every candidate answer behaviour patterns and hence, any unusual candidate answer behaviour will be identified and result in disqualification.
We will continue to investigate the matter with the help of our technical partners and issue further updated if necessary. We reassure candidates and their parents that we will be transparent and ensure examination integrity at all times”.
Many students had complained of technical glitches during NLAT 2020 exam last Sunday, NLSIU decided to conduct a re-test. The same commenced at 12.30 pm today.
A student appearing for exam stated,
“The exam started at 12:30 and on 12:52 the entire paper got leaked on various groups, we have no idea when the ‘first cheater’ got all the questions.”
