0

This week the education sector saw some result declarations, some postponement of exams and some allegations at exam-conducting bodies and lecturers of not supporting Indian students. From CUET 2022 registration deadline extension to demands of NEET PG 2022 exam postponement — here’s a recap of what happened in the education sector this week.

CUET 2022

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has extended the application deadline for the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) 2022. Earlier, the application window was to close on May 6, but now candidates will be able to apply for the entrance exam till May 22. Aspirants who have not yet applied for the exam can do so at cuet.samarth.ac.in.

Along with the application deadline, the last date to pay the application fee has also been extended. Candidates can pay the application fee till 11:50 pm on May 22. The correction window will be available from May 25 to May 31.

NEET-UG 2022

The deadline for NEET-UG registration has been extended up to May 15, 2022, at 9 pm. The last date for payment of the application fee is May 15, 11:50 pm. Earlier, May 6 was the last date to apply. The deadline has been extended in view of the public notice that was released on May 1 regarding all admissions in medical courses to be conducted via NEET-UG 2022 scores. As per Section 14 of the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine Act, 2020, there shall be a uniform NEET (UG) for admission to undergraduate courses in each of the disciplines of the Indian system of medicine in all medical institutions governed under this Act.

Indian medical students

Several Indian medical students, who have returned following Russian invasion of Ukraine, say a section of their teachers believe they might reflect New Delhi’s ‘pro-Russia’ position. Several students said they faced violence and unfair treatment at the hands of the Ukrainian forces at the war-torn east European country’s borders as they were trying to move to safety.

Some students also said that they have contacted government representatives several times but there is no clarity about their future. They have already paid their current semester fees as the Ukrainian universities made it clear that they will not be able to access online lectures otherwise.
