CUET will not be required for admission in undergraduate courses in colleges affiliated to North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) in Meghalaya.
“… Given your concerns such as geographical conditions, mountainous terrain, remote location, limited digital connectivity, infrastructure, etc., NEHU affiliated colleges will continue the current practice for admission instead of CUET. Letters from Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pardhan to Meghalaya Chief Minister Konrad Sangma said.
From this academic year, Common University Entrance Test (CUET) has been introduced for admission in courses in all Central Universities.
Meghalaya Chief Minister Konrad Sangma met Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pardhan on April 25 and sought exemption from CUET for Meghalaya colleges.
CUET is expected to provide a common platform and equal opportunities for candidates across the country.
A single exam will enable candidates to cover wider access and be part of the admission process to various central universities.
