CBSE cancelled the UGC NET July 2018 exam as over 600 aspirants protested vigorously due to the delay in distribution of Paper II. The candidates alleged that Paper II was leaked in SP Convent School in Bamrauli, UP. Consequently, due to the aggressive approach of the protest, the board cancelled the second paper of the exam.
The aspirants asked the reasons behind the delay, but the invigilator and center superintendent had no answer to the questions. Later, the aspirants came out on the GT road and the indignant rush blocked the highway and was demanded for the exam cancellation.
After spreading the information, the regional officer Svettha Arora and police reached the spot. After that, CBSE cancelled the Paper II for Allahabad Region. CBSE superintended and police made several attempts to convince the candidates for attempting the exam, but the crowd was adamant and hence, all the attempts failed.
As per the source, the CBSE board will conduct the exam again within a week. The candidates will get the information about the re-exam through e-mail and sms. In this regard, CBSE Officials gave the statement that,
THE SCHOOL DID NOT FOLLOW THE SEATING PLAN FOR THAT, THERE WAS THE DELAY IN PAPER DISTRIBUTION. ALLAHABAD REGION CBSE ALSO DECIDED TO CANCEL THE AFFILIATION OF THE SCHOOL IMMEDIATELY.

As per the source, the lag in distributing papers happened due to serializing the question paper according to the seating plan. This unexpected behaviour of the school management compelled CBSE to lodge an FIR against the center superintendent and the candidates who were involved in the protest.
