The Jaiñtia Students Union (JSU) has put forth suggestions to the State government in order to help students in need of first-hand guidance and assistance in applying and appearing for the Common University Entrance Test (CUET).
While welcoming the decision on introduction of CUET the students union said there is a need for the State to have proper infrastructures and digital setup to conduct the exam.
“The students are less aware of the present system of CUET for the current academic year 2022-23 and the same put them in a disadvantage mode because of time constraint,” the JSU said.
The students union from the Jaiñtia region suggested that the government should set up help desk at various levels of government administrative headquarters with proper IT infrastructure so that fair and equal opportunity will be provided to every concerned student who are looking for urgent help and assistance in any matters concerning CUET.
It also suggested for appointment of dedicated counsellors for entrance exams at the higher secondary institutions, who will guide students along for appearing the test, be it registration, examination pattern, prescribed syllabus etc. Similar steps may kindly be taken for other entrance tests to other academic courses or programmes.
The JSU also wants setting up of examination centres in all the district headquarters.
Further the union said that implementation of CUET should commence from the next academic session of 2023-24 so that students are given fair and equal chances to competition and preparation for such entrance examination as per the syllabus and subjects specified for the entrance test.
