Extended online application process. Here are the new dates – Edexlive
Here is good news for students who tried to register for the Central Universities Entrance Test for Undergraduate Courses (CUET-UG). The online application process will be open from May 27 to May 31, 2022, shared M Jagadesh Kumar, President, UGC in a statement.
“In view of the representations received from applicants regarding the possibility of submitting their online application form for CUET (UG) – 2022, we have decided to keep the CUET (UG) online application process open from May 27 to May 31, 2022 (until 9:00 p.m.)”, explained the president of the UGC in a press release.
The students took to social media and used hashtags like #extendcuet #extendcuetug and #EnoughIsEnough to air their grievances.
Some of the problems they faced were that they received the OTP very late (for some it was almost a day later) and therefore could not complete their application before the deadline. Then, problems were reported when filling in the application form itself.
Tweets to the president included requests to extend the online application process so they don’t have to wait another year. Students in Assam, affected by massive flooding, have also requested an extension.
Recall that the application was extended by the UGC in view of student requests at the beginning of the month, until May 22. The exam is scheduled for July 2022.
CUET-UG has been made mandatory for all Central Universities.
