CUET 2023: Exam Format to remain same, number of centres to be increased, confirms UGC Chief
CUET 2023: The University Grants Commission (UGC) head M Jagadesh Kumar has said that there will be no changes in the format of holding the Central University Entrance Test (CUET) 2023 and the number of centres will be increased from about 450 to 1000.
The announcement came after last year's students complained of several glitches in the conduct of CUET. It was expected that the National Testing Agency (NTA) was considering making changes to this year’s exam. Reduction in the number of subject combinations on offer and review of the number of cities where the exams are held were among the measures under consideration, as per the Indian Express report.
The delay in the intimation of exam centres, technical glitches, and a slow upload of the question paper were a few of the glitches reported during CUET 2022. When asked about the status of these implementations, UGC Chairman said, “Everything will remain the same this year. There’s no change. Students will have the same choices of subjects, the upcoming year will have the same format, and it will also be computer-based multiple-choice questions”.
Kumar added, “14.9 lakh students registered for CUET last year and that required about 450 centres each day so this year we are preparing about 1000 centres. Even if we require about 600 centres per day, assuming that the number may go up, you will still have extra centres as standby so that any kind of glitches and other problems that were there last year will be minimised.”
