CUET-UG fourth phase: Students struggle with uninformed changes in exam dates, centres

New Delhi, Aug 18 (PTI) Uninformed change in exam dates, change in centres at the last moment, far off centres and no clarity on retest options -- students on second day of CUET's fourth phase were a worried lot.

Many candidates, who were permitted to reschedule their CUET UG exam to August 30, were shocked to find out that their exams were advanced to Thursday and the centres were far away from their preferred locations. They also claimed that no intimation was sent to them about change in date.

There was no official word from the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the National Testing Agency (NTA) "My intimation slip mentioned my chosen city as the exam centre city. However, when I got the admit card, I got a centre which is 150 km away and the entry closes at 8.30 am. I have been trying to reach the NTA but no luck yet," said Neha Singhal, a CUET aspirant.
