On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court heard a case from a candidate who failed the CUET UG 2022 exam as a result of a last-minute change in the exam location. The National Testing Agency (NTA) was criticised by Justice Sanjeev Narula today, who stated that “a child shall not be deprived of sitting on the test paper owing to your negligence and you cannot take the excuse of technical problems.”

All respondents were also given notice by the Delhi High Court, which set the matter for hearing on August 16, 2022.
Due to a change in the testing location, the petitioner was unable to sit for the geography paper exam on July 15, 2022. The court noted that even though the candidate informed the NTA about the unexpected change in exam location, the abovementioned request is still ongoing. The petitioner will be given the chance to retake the exam if the issue is determined to be genuine, according to the NTA’s attorney who appeared on behalf of the NTA.

This decision was reached after student Ahilya Majithia, through counsel Ashok Agarwal and Kumar Utkarsh, complained that the CUET 2022 exam centre had been abruptly changed without warning. Several students had complained about a last-minute exam centre change on social media. The first Common University Entrance Test (CUET) was hampered by a number of problems, including far-off exam centres, delayed admit cards, and technical difficulties.

For candidates who were unable to take the CUET UG 2022 due to administrative or technological issues, the NTA recently announced that the postponed CUET 2022 test would be held between August 24 and 28. According to Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC), new CUET UG 2022 admit cards will be provided for these applicants.
