Centre exempts students seeking admission in NEHU affiliated colleges from CUET

Shillong, May 12: The Ministry of Education has exempted students of the state seeking admission into undergraduate courses into colleges affiliated to North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) from the Common University Entrance Test (CUET).

However, this exemption is only for the year 2022-23.

“Taking into consideration the concerns raised by you like geographical conditions, hilly terrain, far flung location, limited digital connectivity, infrastructure, the affiliated colleges of NEHU will continue with the existing practice for admission instead of CUET,” Minister of Education, Dharmendra Pradhan said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma took to a micro blogging site to thank Pradhan.

“On behalf of the students of my State, I would like to express my gratitude to Hon’ble Minister @dpradhanbjpji for allowing colleges affiliated to NEHU to continue with existing practice for admission instead of #CUET,” Sangma said.
