NEW DELHI: The release of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) 2022 advance city intimation slip has alarmed CUET 2022 aspirants as some students found themselves to be writing exams in different districts for CUET 2022 slot 1 and slot 2 exams on the same day, and many found the system of allotting different exam dates for the same stream of subjects to be unjust.

CUET 2022 aspirants took to Twitter to express their disappointment against the exam system adopted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). Kiranjyoti Chakma, a CUET 2022 candidate got his first slot and second slot exam on the same day. But he has been allotted exam centres in different districts. His slot 1 exam is to be held in Guwahati, Assam from 9 am to 12:15 pm, and the slot 2 exam in Silchar, Assam from 3 pm to 6:45 pm. In a tweet, he shared his CUET city intimation slip and took a dig at the NTA by saying that if the same happens on the CUET admit card 2022, then he will possibly have to look for someone to cover the second slot, as he can't reach the exam centre even with a helicopter at his disposal considering the distance and the time.

A Twitter user highlighted the unjust way of conducting the CUET UG 2022 exam by NTA as a set of students are getting less time for preparation, while other students are getting more time for the same subject stream. "What a hopeless way of conducting #CUET exam. One set of students are getting July 15th as exam date for same stream of subjects like Commerce & Economics while for same subject another set of kids with same stream getting August 16 / 18th as date . #CUETADMITCARD @dpradhanbjp," the twitter handle named #BC posted.

In another tweet, the user alleged that this kind of discrimination in CUET 2022 is an injustice. The user demanded the rollback of CUET 2022 exam dates. "Dear @DG_NTA @dpradhanbjp Why this injustice NTA? Some students have their exam in July, some in August. 1 month difference for students with same subject combinations. Why kill the dreams of half of the students? Roll back CUET dates!!! #CUET #injusticeatitspeak #CUETADMITCARD," read the tweet.

Need to stay under pressure for a whole month. #NTA @DG_NTA informed that exam will not be postponed.. Now what's this? #unfairnta #CUET #CUETUG2022 #CUETADMITCARD," he said.
