"This is a landmark achievement by NTA in conducting CUET-UG in such large numbers on a single day, and NTA deserves kudos for their careful planning and for making sure that the test today went off well at such a large scale in pen and paper mode," said M Jagadesh Kumar, Chairman UGC.

The postponed date is only for Delhi centers. This postponement was necessitated due to some logistical issues beyond the control of NTA. Fresh admission cards will be issued to the students in Delhi. 
On May 15, 2024, attendance was more than 75%. However, the accurate percentage will be known after we analyze the data.
