CUET 2022 Phase 2 Live Updates

A student from Karol Bagh, Delhi, told Careers360, “My centre was in Noida sector 64, which is around 28 kms (from where he lives). It was around a 1-1:15 hour journey by metro. They should have at least tried to inform beforehand. Maybe me and many other students could have turned back midway to save time.”

“They also told the students that if we want to give the exam on some other date except August 12, we should email our preference. All the students got to know about this only after reaching the exam centre! There was complete ruckus there! They also asked us to email our preferable date on an email id they gave to students at the gate,” he said.

It was the guard stationed at the CUET 2022 exam centre in Noida who told the students about the postponement and asked to email their preferable exam date to Change@nta.ac.in.

Many students also took to Twitter demanding clarity on the confusion caused due to last-minute change in CUET 2022 exam dates. The National Testing Agency (NTA) in a notice issued on August 3 late evening informed that the CUET 2022 has been postponed for candidates appearing in the cities in Kerala due to heavy rain.

However, students in Noida were left in a limbo as they were asked to return after they reached the exam centre.

CUET 2022 Postponed

A student wrote on Twitter, “CUET exam which was scheduled for 4th August 2022, is postponed without prior notice. students were informed about this when they reached the examination centre. This shows how irresponsibly NTA is taking examinations.”

Another aspirant tweeted that they were asked to wait till 6 pm to give the exam. “NTA has completely failed to conduct the CUET exam, after reaching the exam center, we are being told that the server is down, you guys wait, my exam is in slot 1 and we are being told that you will be there till 6 pm Wait you can have your exam at any time,” the student said.

“Sir, 4 August at 9 am my exam has to be scheduled at exam center RS Technical, Bhatauli, Harahua Varanasi but due to server problem exam has not started yet,” a CUET aspirant tweeted.

Students have also been requesting NTA to allot a exam centre as many reported missing details in the CUET admit card 2022.

While many students are still demanding change in CUET 2022 exam date due to clash with other competitive exams.
