The central Government has exempted undergraduate students of Meghalaya and Nagaland seeking admissions to colleges affiliated with central universities in the two states from CUET, officials said on Wednesday.

The North Eastern Hill University in Meghalaya and Nagaland University in Nagaland are central universities.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has thanked Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan for exempting undergraduate students of Meghalaya seeking admission in colleges affiliated with North Eastern Hill University, a central varsity.

The exemption was made following the state government’s petition to the National Testing Agency which had conducted CUET for students seeking UG admissions in both the Central Universities in Meghalaya and Nagaland, they said.
