Must read

SHILLONG, MAY 29: Education Minister Rakkam A Sangma said on Wednesday that forty to fifty percent of the Class XII graduates have not registered for the Common University Entrance Test – Undergraduate (CUET-UG) held recently in the state.

“About 6,000 to 7,000 students appeared for CUET-UG, but many did not register. Forty to fifty percent of Class XII graduates did not register for the CUET examination this year. This may be due to a lack of communication and awareness, but I would advise my students to stay updated and informed about what is happening in the country,” Sangma told reporters.


The education minister also informed that the state has been exempted from CUET for the last three years consecutively and said, “I would like to inform everyone that in the coming years, we will not have a justification to seek exemption again and again. For the colleges, especially those affiliated with central universities, our students and institutions must be prepared, sensitized, and made aware so that everyone knows and registers for the CUET examination, especially those planning to take admission in institutions affiliated with central universities as well as those planning to go outside the state for higher education.

“The good thing is that after appearing for CUET, we can understand how much we have studied, how we perform, and the performance of the students in our institutions. However, as a teacher before I joined politics, I would like to advise my young students not to fear such entrance examinations. We should try for the experience, but to me, yes, for central universities, CUET may be compulsory in the days to come,” he said.

“However, with respect to the state of Meghalaya, those institutions that want to affiliate with the state university, many of the state institutions will be affiliated with Captain Williamson Sangma State University, and the work is in process,” Sangma added.
