Q:   How many CUET exam centres can I choose?

A:

Candidates can choose upto two exam cities of their choice while filling the CUET application form. NTA will make the best efforts to allot the city of examination to the candidates in the order of preference opted by them in their CUET 2024 application form. However, due to administrative/logistic reasons, a different city can be allotted to the candidates. Choice of CUET 2024 centre city will be limited to the State of Permanent Address or State of Present Address only. In case, there are very few candidates from a particular CUET exam centre city, the NTA reserves the right to merge one, two, or more cities.

Candidates will have the oppurtunity to choose the exam city while filling the CUET application form 2024. Candidates must carefully choose the exam cities. No request for change in exam centre will be entertained once the admit cards are issued.
