The Common University Entrance Test Undergraduate (CUET UG) 2022 phase 1 day 1 was held on July 15 across the country. However, some students reported being late at their examination centre while some candidates missed their exam due to last minute relocation of the examination centre.
Refuting to earlier reports, that students will get a chance to reappear for the test, UGC chairman Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar said that no retest will be held for those who missed Fridayâ€™s CUET UG 2022 exam.
The UGC Chairman has requested that aspirants arrive at the examination centre two hours before the start of the CUET, as specified on their hall ticket and has issued exam day guidelines.
â€œIn some cases, a few students reached the centres after 9.30 pm, after the commencement of the first session in the morning slot. It is a common practice and it has already been conveyed to students that if they come 30 minutes after the commencement of the examination, they are not permitted to enter the centre,â€ Said UGC chairperson Prof M Jagadesh Kumar.
With 14.9 lakh registrations, the CUET is being conducted in two phases. While Phase 1 is being held in July, Phase 2 is scheduled to be held in August.
Candidates who have opted for Physics, Chemistry or Biology have been assigned Phase 2 of the CUET exam, given that NEET (UG) – 2022 for admissions to MBBS and BDS colleges will be held on July 17.
