However, exams in all other centers across the country and abroad will proceed as planned, with the revised date set for May 29, 2024.

The third edition of CUET-UG, touted as the country's largest test, is set to commence on Wednesday, introducing a hybrid mode of examination for the first time. The exams for four subjects - Chemistry, Biology, English, and General Test - were initially slated for Wednesday.
