CUET UG retest from July 15 for candidates with valid complaints

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced that a retest for CUET UG candidates will be held from July 15 to 19 if any grievances regarding the conduct of the exam are found to be valid. Additionally, the NTA has released the answer key for the undergraduate entrance exam, although the results will be delayed. According to a senior NTA official, candidates can submit challenges to the answer key until 6 pm on July 9.

The official notice reads, "The NTA is also addressing the public grievances received regarding the Exam conducted for CUET (UG) - 2024 and received up to 30 June 2024. If the grievance is genuine, the NTA is
committed to redoing the Exam for these Candidates at selected Centres any day between 15 and 19 July 2024." Further, the admit cards will be issued to the candidates and the exam in CBT (Computer-Based Test) mode only.

Although NTA officials did not comment on the grievances received, candidates have reported issues such as loss of time at certain exam centres and technical difficulties.

Over 13.4 lakh candidates registered for the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for admission to undergraduate programmes in 261 central, state, deemed, and private universities this year.

"Challenges made by the candidates will be verified by a panel of subject experts. Based on the revised final answer key, the result will be declared," the official adds.

The delay in the CUET-UG results occurred amidst ongoing controversy over alleged irregularities in competitive exams, including NEET and NET. This year, the CUET-UG exam was conducted in a hybrid mode for the first time nationwide. However, the exam scheduled in Delhi was cancelled the night before due to logistical issues and was subsequently rescheduled in the national capital.

The NTA had earlier announced that the third edition of CUET-UG would be completed in seven days and there will be no normalisation of scores as all exams will be conducted in a single shift. The tests for 15 subjects were conducted in pen-and-paper mode, while the exam for the remaining 48 subjects was computer-based.
