Great news for students in Meghalaya and Nagaland! Chief Minister Conrad Sangma announced that students applying to colleges affiliated with Central Universities in these states won’t need to take the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for the upcoming academic year.


CM Sangma shared his gratitude to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan for his ongoing support in making this happen. On his social media platform X, Sangma wrote, “Happy to inform our students that admissions to affiliated colleges of Central University in Meghalaya have been exempted from CUET for this academic year. I thank @dpradhanbjp ji for his continuous support and understanding.”


The exemption, confirmed by a letter from the Union Education Ministry, applies to the 2024-2025 academic year. Gopal Kumar, Under Secretary of the Education Ministry, stated, “UGC has considered the decision taken by the Ministry and agreed to allow admissions in the affiliated colleges of Central Universities in the state of Meghalaya and Nagaland i.e. NEHU and Nagaland University as per the prevailing practice by giving exemption from CUET for the academic year 2024-25 only.”


This decision is a significant relief for students in these regions, allowing them to follow the traditional admission process instead of the CUET for this year.
