CUET-UG 2022: Exams postponed, NTA to issue new admit cards

CUET Phase II admit cards to be released on August 1

August 1, 2022

The National Testing Agency (NTA) will release the admit cards for the Common University Entrance Test undergraduate (CUET UG) for Phase II candidates on August 1, 2022. Registered candidates will be able to download their hall tickets from the official CUET UG website  — cuet.samarth.ac.in — by logging in through their registered credentials.

This time, only the hall tickets of the phase II students will be released. These candidates had already received an advance city intimation slip from the official CUET website in the second week of July. This slip carries a unique date sheet along with the name of the city allotted to individual candidates. Now, the candidates will be given the exam date, time and exam centre address.

The students who wish to request a change if their exam city can request a change by sending an email to the NTA. Candidates may call NTA at 011-40759000 or send an e-mail at [email protected]

The second phase exams are scheduled to take place on August 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 20.

Candidates had to face a lot of issues on the first day of the Phase I examination as some complained about the changed examination centre at the last minute. While many missed the examination as they did not reach their scheduled centre on time, the UGC notified that there would be no retest for these individuals. and their parents have complained that pupils with similar subject combinations have got different examination dates and schedules.

Students had been advised to reach two hours in advance, the UGC chief had said, adding that there is a “grace period” of 30 minutes after the start of the exam, but “no one is allowed to enter after that.”

CUET-UG Phase II clashes with Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHACET)

Meanwhile,  many students have complained that Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT CET) dates are clashing with the CUET phase II 2022 dates. 

According to The Indian Express, Jayesh Rajbhar said that both his exams are scheduled on August 8. “My CUET exam and MHT CET are on the same day, same shift. Even though both the exams are in my home town, Chandrapur, it is impossible for me to appear for both since I have morning shift for both the exams,” said Rajbhar.

Rajbhar also said that he wrote a detailed email to the NTA explaining his problem but has not received any reply yet. “I even repeatedly called on their helpline numbers but nobody picked up those”.

“I have one set of exams for CUET in the evening shift of August 6, so I might as well appear for CUET now and complete one exam instead of appearing for one and a half exam,” added he.

When asked if there can be any changes in the MHT CET dates now, R S Jagtap, Commissioner of the cell, said that dates will not be revised. “We had originally planned the exams in June but there was some clash with JEE Main exams. Then, we postponed our exams to July but then again JEE had second session exams, so we again postponed our exams to August. Now, we have even issued hall tickets, so there will be no change, especially since our exams are beginning in two days now,” said Jagtap.

The NTA’s Director-General Vineet Joshi said that they have learnt about the clash of exam dates. “Any request for date change (in case of a clash) or centre change (to be able to take both exams more easily) will be only considered after the admit card for the second phase of CUET is issued. Students should write to us after getting their admit cards and we’ll consider their request on merit,” he said.
