On Day 2 of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) Phase II, which was held on Friday, problems remained, ranging from technological difficulties to postponements without prior notice to applicants.
Many candidates said that they were forced to return without even setting foot inside the testing facilities, while others claimed that they learned of the postponement either halfway through or right after their exam.
After two and a half hours of waiting, the exam scheduled for Thursday afternoon at a private institution in Greater Noida was moved to Friday morning. Due to technical issues, the rescheduled examinations on Friday morning got underway a half-hour late.
The official authorities at NTA shared a few words on the ongoing hazard, ‘CUET-UG postponed at a total of 50 examination centres. While 20 have been postponed from the first shift, 30 have been postponed from the second. This development comes after some centres reported technical issues.’
Exams for Slot 2 were cancelled at the Noida 64 centre, causing uncertainty in the first session as well.
However, the NTA assured that the exams of the affected candidates will be rescheduled. ‘Yes, we cancelled the second shift of the exam today at the Noida centre. The affected candidates will have their exam rescheduled between August 12 and 14, and we will soon let them know their exact dates,’ said NTA officials.
