NEW DELHI: The CUET-PG concluded on Tuesday with an overall attendance of 55%. The results are expected by September-end, a senior NTA official told TOI. As many as 66 universities had participated in this common entrance test for admission to postgraduate programmes in central universities.
Nearly 3.6 lakh candidates — just over 1.8 lakh male and 1.7 lakh female — had registered for CUET-PG. Of them, 1.3 lakh were in the OBC category and over 29,000 in the EWS category. Among the universities, BHU
(3.5 lakh) received the maximum number of applications, followed by JNU with 2.3 lakh applications. Meanwhile, the National Testing Agency has started looking into the grievances raised by CUET-UG candidates post the announcement of results last week.
“All grievances received through emails are being looked into. Majority of the grievances are related to being marked absent in papers where the candidates are claiming they had appeared. All the records are being checked and in case candidates are being marked absent wrongly their results will be announced soon,” a senior NTA official said.
