ANCSU plea to exempt Nagaland from CUET

All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has appealed to state government to request the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Ministry of Education to exempt Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for affiliated and autonomous colleges in Nagaland for academic year 2023-2024.
In a representation addressed to the state chief secretary, ANCSU president Toito D Chishi and general secretary Tenyesinlo Bukh acknowledged that CUET would not only remove the disparity between students from different boards, reduce the hassle of multiple examinations and bias in evaluations, but also enable the students to pursue their field of interest.
ANCSU, however, there were still operational difficulties in Nagaland to implement CUET through online mode CBT.
The union stated there was no proper digital connectivity in many parts of Nagaland due to geographical condition.
It stated that even in those areas where access to internet was available, there was no consistency and stability of network because of poor electricity.
Further, ANCSU pointed out that though National Testing Agency (NTA) had identified 523 common service centres from 10 districts in Nagaland for conducting CUET exam, many CSC/facilitation centres were not operating for genuine reasons mentioned. It also said that there was no csc/facilitation centre in some districts.
ANCSU has, therefore, appealed to the government to request UGC and MoE to consider the case of colleges in Nagaland (affiliated to NU & autonomous) and allow the students to take admission in their affiliated colleges for the academic year 2023-2024.
