Candidates who applied for the Common University Entrance Test-Undergraduate (CUET-UG) were affected last week as exams were cancelled due to technical problems. It is now rescheduled from August 24th to August 28th. Prof. Jagdish Kumar, who is the chairman of UGC, stated that a “fresh admit card will be issued for candidates whose exam was canceled.”
The second phase exam was held on August 8th in 275 locations across the country, with 64,472 candidates registered. But in two centers in Itanagar, that’s Rajiv Gandhi University and NIT, where a total of 190 candidates are registered, only 3 candidates manage to reach there due to a heavy landslide. For those who weren’t able to reach the center, Prof. Jagdish Kumar has said, “Those candidates who couldn’t reach these two centers, their exam will be held from August 24th to August 28th.”
The earlier cancelled exam dates were August 12th to August 14th, but many candidates requested, not to schedule exams on these dates as many festivals are going to occur during that week. At the request of these candidates, the fresh dates were released.
The third phase of these exams is going to be held on the 17th, 18th, and 20th of this month as per schedule. Meanwhile, to make these exams more successful and function smoothly, the National Test Agency (NTA) is taking possible actions from their side. They also created a redressal email I’d ([email protected]) where candidates sent their issues with their application numbers and with subject combinations. Mr. Kumar also suggested that candidates stay updated on the NTA website.
