Summary: In this paper, we study \(p\)-divisibility of discriminants of Hecke algebras associated to spaces of cusp forms of prime level. By considering cusp forms of weight bigger than \(2\), we are are led to make a precise conjecture about indexes of Hecke algebras in their normalisation which implies (if true) the surprising conjecture that there are no mod \(p\) congruences between non-conjugate newforms in \(S_{2}(\Gamma_{0}(p)\)), but there are almost always many such congruences when the weight is bigger than \(2\).
