Less CUET centres in J&K: Testing agency’s centre allocation in Punjab irks Ramban candidates

Candidates from Ramban district in Jammu and Kashmir are distressed as the National Testing Agency (NTA) has directed them to appear for the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) on June 8 at Jalandhar in Punjab and other cities outside J&K. Last month, the CUET exams of J&K candidates were postponed following assurances by the lieutenant governor that they will be conducted within the union territory. Some candidates have appealed to the LG to take up their matter with the Centre on priority. The J&K Congress has criticized the CUET pattern and demanded that NTA allot centres to J&K students within their own districts or adjoining districts.
