CUET Exams To Start From July 15

The debut edition of the CUET-UG will be conducted from July 15 to August 10. The 'city intimation slips' were issued to the students on Monday

The stress has increased manifold among students ever since the admit cards for the CUET-2022 were issued, with the aspirants complaining about a lack of time to prepare for the examination and no knowledge about their examination centres.

The debut edition of the CUET-UG will be conducted from July 15 to August 10. The 'city intimation slips' were issued to the students on Monday.

"On Monday, only our admit cards came. Many of us have been given three days to prepare for the most important examination of our life," said Himanshu (16), a Common University Entrance Test (CUET) aspirant.

Moreover, there is no clarity as regards the examination centre as the 'city intimation slip' only mentions the city's name, not that of the centre.

"It is written on the website that the examination city can also be changed in case of a large number of students. There is a lot of uncertainty," Himanshu said.

Students say they are not satisfied with the date-sheet as the papers are either falling on the same day or in the first few days of the examination.

They feel it provides an unfair advantage to others as they will get ample time to prepare and also an idea about the pattern of the examination. A few aspirants have got all their examinations on the same day.

According to National Testing Agency (NTA) officials, students should not get worried as they have been issued the 'city intimation slips' for the examination centre.

"Advance intimation slips for the examination city to all candidates with the date of the examination and the city of the examination are being issued. The City Intimation Slip for each candidate has information relating to the subjects, language and medium offered in Slot 1 and Slot 2 as well as the date and the city allotted," a senior NTA official said.

"The admit card of the first phase, showing the details of the examination centre, have been available for download from 6 pm on July 12," he added.

On Monday, University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar had said at least 98 per cent candidates appearing for the CUET will be allotted the exam centres in the cities of their choice.

The CUET is a centralised common entrance test for admission to undergraduate programmers in over 90 universities across the country, including the Delhi University.

Due to a large number of subjects, a unique date-sheet for every individual candidate has been created.

The unique combination method is quite confusing and convoluted for the students. The lack of guidance is being equally felt by the students and their parents.
