Admit cards were issued on Monday to candidates who will appear in the second phase of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), which was scheduled to begin on August 4, an official said.
This year, CUET has become mandatory for admission to colleges affiliated to central universities.
All central universities like Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jamia Millia Islamia, Banaras Hindu University have been included in this programme.
About seven thousand candidates are expected to appear for the exams. On the request of some candidates residing in the flood affected areas, the examination centers have been changed.
University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman M Jagadesh Kumar said that all possible efforts have been made to ensure that candidates take the exam at the center of first choice.
Candidates must select the examination centers before downloading the admit card.
According to the National Testing Agency (NTA), all candidates will be issued admit cards in the next 1-2 days.
The NTA said some of the candidates faced difficulty in uploading the admit card due to “heavy traffic” on the site.
CUET is conducted for admission to undergraduate courses.
Around 14,90,000 candidates have registered for CUET in the country and abroad. About 8 million 10 thousand candidates appeared for the first stage of the exam, which started on July 15.
According to the UGC, students who clear this exam will be considered eligible for admission to 90 different universities, including 43 central universities.
These exams are conducted at around 554 centers in India and 10 centers outside the country.
