CUET UG: outage on second day, exam canceled at multiple centers


CUET UG exam centers again encountered technical problems on the second day. This was the day after the National Testing Agency (NTA) had to cancel the exam at all 489 centers and postpone the first service in some locations in 17 states.

The students on Friday also complained that they had to wait two hours before authorities told them that the exam scheduled for that day had been cancelled.

“I came from Chhatarpur to the exam center in Noida Sector 64 (about 34 km). We had to sit at the terminals. At 12 o’clock we were told that the exam will not be taken today because there are technical problems. Yesterday, my sister came all the way from Narela to this center (about 84 km) but had to return because of the same problem.” Ganika told PTI news agency.

Hemanshe Udar, another CUET candidate, shared a similar complaint.

“I left my home in Dwarka Sector 51 (44 km) at 5:30 am to be in the center on time. But we were told after almost three hours that the paper will not happen today and that we have to return on August 12. It’s extremely difficult to commute from that far,” she told PTI.

Her mother said it was difficult for parents too, as many took time off from work to accompany their children to testing centers.

The NTA said the first shift of the exam was carried out smoothly in 95% of centers across the country. But when the second shift started on Thursday, several exam centers faced technical difficulties. These exams will take place on August 12.

The NTA has also postponed the CUET-UG in Kerala scheduled for August 4, 5 and 6 due to heavy rainfall.

Some students said Friday they were being asked to tear the admission cards, although the NTA had said on Thursday that the same admission card will be valid for those who failed to take the exam.

“I have to come to the same center tomorrow for my Section 2 exam. We have been assured that the exam will be taken. But considering yesterday and today’s scenario, it seems unlikely,” said Roshni, who is from the North. Campus traveled.
