Opportunity for Students Who Missed CUET 2023 Exam

SRINAGAR, Jun 14: The government has made an important announcement regarding the students who were unable to appear in the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) 2023 due to being allotted examination centers in distant towns and cities.

These students will now be given the opportunity to take admission in subjects and colleges of their choice, according to Principal Secretary of Education, Alok Kumar.

CUET, in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, is a standardized entrance test conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The aim of this test is to streamline the admission process for undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by universities across the country. By assessing the knowledge, aptitude, and skills of the applicants, CUET provides a fair and equitable evaluation platform for all candidates. Last year, more than 200 universities, including 47 central universities, participated in the CUET.

This development will provide an excellent opportunity for students from Jammu and Kashmir to secure admissions in prestigious universities and colleges nationwide.

The Higher Education Department of J&K has made strenuous efforts to implement the Common University Entrance Test for the academic session of 2023, in accordance with the guidelines outlined in the NEP 2020 and the government’s commitment to inclusivity. A total of 87,309 unique candidates from the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir had registered for CUET (UG) 2023.

Initially, examination centers were allocated randomly based on the availability of infrastructure within the geographical boundaries of J&K, and the exam dates were announced by the National Testing Agency.

However, some students were assigned centers outside the UT of J&K. Recognizing the peculiar situation and the ensuing resentment during the scheduled G-20 event in Kashmir, the National Testing Agency, after the intervention of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, deferred the CUET (UG) examination for J&K students. A center reallocation process exclusively for J&K students was implemented, and new dates for the examination were issued.

In order to address the travel and logistical challenges faced by students who were required to appear for CUET (UG) 2023 at examination centers located outside the UT of J&K, the department swiftly augmented the necessary infrastructure.

However, upon thorough examination, it was discovered that some students from the Jammu division, even after the reallocation of centers, were still assigned centers outside the UT of J&K and encountered discrepancies in the examination dates for certain subject combinations.

To alleviate the concerns of the student community in this regard, Principal Secretary HED reassured that sufficient opportunities would be provided to such candidates for admission to undergraduate programs in various degree colleges of the Union Territory based on their merit in the 12th class examination.
