However, students were duly informed in advance about the staggered entry system.
To avoid such situations in the future, students are requested to arrive at the examination centers in a staggered manner. The authorities have implemented administrative measures to prevent similar issues from occurring again. Traffic police assistance has been sought in many cities to minimize traffic congestion around the centers. Additionally, basic amenities such as water, refreshments, and covered waiting areas have been provided to the candidates and their parents/guardians. Regular updates regarding the delayed exam start were communicated to the candidates and their parents to keep them informed about the status of the centers. The UGC Chairman assured that further steps will be taken to enhance the overall experience for students appearing in the CUET-UG.
The UGC Chairman concluded by urging all CUET aspirants to stay updated with the latest information and to prepare diligently for the upcoming phases of the entrance test. The admit cards for the second phase will be released soon, and candidates should regularly check the official website for updates. Moreover, the exam city slip for the third phase will be available on 23rd May. The UGC Chairman expressed optimism that the CUET-UG will continue to be conducted smoothly, allowing students to showcase their abilities and pursue their higher education aspirations.
