  • Fresh admit cards will be issued for candidates appearing for CUET UG 2022 exam
  • On Thursday, the exam for first and second shift was cancelled at more than 500 centres
  • On Friday, the exam was cancelled at 50 centres

The Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG for candidates, who were affected by cancellations last week owing to technical glitches, will now be conducted from August 24 to 28, according to officials of the National Testing Agency on Sunday.

Fresh admit cards will be issued for these candidates, they said.

"In second phase, the exam scheduled between August 4 to 6 were deferred at few centres due to administrative and technical reasons. Earlier, we had announced the exams would be conducted from August 12-14.

"However, many candidates had approached us requesting not schedule exam on said dates as a series of festivals were falling during the period," a senior NTA official said.

"Hence, it was decided that the exam be conducted between August 24 to 28 and fresh admit cards will be issued before the examination date," the official added.

On Thursday, the first shift of the exam was cancelled at several centres across 17 states, while the second shift was cancelled at all 489 centres.

On Friday, the exam was cancelled at 50 centres.

Anticipating the same situation on Saturday, the agency cancelled the CUET-UG for the day at 53 centres and sent messages to candidates about its postponement on Friday night.
