According to NTA officials, the overall attendance in the CUET-UG 2022 was not disappointing. In fact, an average attendance of 75-80% was recorded in places like Delhi which have many central universities.
The overall attendance of all the six phases of the CUET-UG 2022 across the country was approximately 60%. However, some northeastern state universities were exempted from conducting the CUET-UG entrance exam this year, due to some unavoidable technical and operational issues. Therefore, the attendance rate was low in such states, otherwise the overall CUET-UG debut edition was conducted successfully throughout the country, said an NTA official.
According to Kumar, the UGC will investigate all the reasons behind the attendance. "In Delhi, the overall attendance in all phases was recorded between 75% to 80%. This is the highest attendance in a given region," he added.
