Srinagar, Apr 13 (KNO): In wake of low CUET based admissions in many degree colleges of Jammu and Kashmir, Higher Education Department Saturday exempted 64 Government Degree Colleges from making admissions through CUET score for academic session 2024-25.


The department further said that many other students did not prefer to seek admission through the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) mode keeping in view their geographical locations, topography and availability of the infrastructure.


According to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) Under Secretary to government Sanjay Kumar Tickoo in a communiqué said that among the colleges that have been exempted from making admissions through CUET score for academic session 2024-25 includes 35 government colleges of Jammu division and 29 of Kashmir region respectively.


“In view of very low CUET based admissions in some government degree colleges during last year admissions, the situation was revisited this year after discussions with all the stakeholders and it was decided to identify the colleges where the students did not prefer to seek admission through the CUET mode keeping in view their geographical locations, topography, availability of the infrastructure etcetera and where the CUET based admissions were very low during last year,” it reads.


CUET-2024 is scheduled to be held from 15-05-2024 to 31-05-2024 in thirteen mediums across India for the evaluation of candidates desirous of seeking admissions to various undergraduate programs.


The higher education department has observed that CUET based admissions in far off colleges located at Marwah, Tangdhar, Gurez, Mahore etcetera puts the students in an undue disadvantageous situation.


“The Nodal Principals, Jammu and Srinagar have furnished the lists of 35 Government Colleges of Jammu Division and 29 Government Colleges of Kashmir Division on the basis of the available data and locations of the Colleges for exemption of these Government colleges for making admissions through CUET and allow them to make admissions during the Academic Session 2024-24 without CUET score,” it reads.


It further reads.”In the interest of the aspiring students belonging to the Jammu and Kashmir divisions respectively are exempted for making admissions in these respective colleges on the basis of CUET score for the academic session 2024-25.”


The department however said that the admissions in these colleges shall be done in a centralized manner through the e-SAMARTH portal on the basis of 12th class marks—(KNO)
