NBEMS refutes claims of FMGE question paper leak, issues notice – EducationTimes.com

A day before the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) June 2024, the Kerala Cyber ​​Police registered a case against several Telegram groups that advertised the sale of question papers for the exam to be held on July 6. However, the National Board of Medical Examinations (NBEMS) in its official notification has termed all such claims as fake.

It was alleged that the question papers were being sold on Telegram groups that were providing the alleged leaked question papers to FMGE aspirants. The Kerala Cyber ​​Police registered a case after it was announced on social media that the FMGE question papers and answer keys were for sale.

According to the report, a state police spokesperson said that the City Cyber ​​Crime Police in Thiruvananthapuram has registered a case in this matter. The spokesperson said in a statement that the case has been registered under the Public Examination (Prevention of Unfair Means) Act 2024, which is the first case of its kind in the state to be registered under this law.

The spokesperson said that in an effort to detect such frauds, the cyber division of the police has started 24×7 cyber patrolling on social media platforms including various Telegram channels.

Cautioning about social media groups duping candidates for FMGE June 2024, NBEMS said, “FMGE June 2024 is scheduled to be held on July 6, 2024. It has come to light that some people are trying to dupe FMGE candidates through social media platforms. The above fraudsters on such social media platforms are claiming to provide FMGE questions for the upcoming FMGE June 2024 in return for which they will get a handsome amount of money.”

The notice further reads, “It has also come to light that a police complaint has been lodged in Kerala against such fraudsters who are trying to fool FMGE candidates. Please be informed that the question paper for the examination is still being prepared. By the present notice, FMGE June 2024 applicants are hereby cautioned not to fall prey to or get mislead by such unscrupulous elements who are trying to fool FMGE candidates by claiming to have obtained the questions of the upcoming FMGE through the authority.”

Further, the Board advised that involvement of any FMGE candidate directly or indirectly in any such activities will be dealt with appropriately by NBEMS.
