60% attendance in CUET-UG: NTA



The National Testing Agency (NTA) has stated that in the debut edition of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG, 60 per cent attendance was recorded. The CUET-UG exams concluded last week.

An official at NTA mentioned that in areas where there were central universities, including Delhi, the attendance was recorded between 75% and 80%. “The 60% attendance is calculated from across the country. This time, the universities of North-eastern states were exempted from CUET due to operational difficulties. Therefore, attendance was recorded less in those states. Overall, the CUET was conducted successfully across the country.”

University Grants Commission (UGC) chairperson, M Jagadesh Kumar said the commission will examine the possible reasons behind the 60% attendance. He further added, “We are aiming to announce the results in 10 days from the last exam date.”
