Heavy rain triggers havoc in Kerala. The National Testing Agency (NTA) on Thursday postponed the CUET-UG in Kerala due to heavy rains in the state, officials said. The second phase of CUET-UG, which got underway in the rest of the country and nine cities abroad on Thursday, will continue until August 6.
Nearly 6.8 lakh candidates had registered for the second phase of the test. New dates for the exam will be announced later. The inclement weather in the state resulted in water levels of various rivers — like Pampa, Manimala and Achankovil — in the Pathanamthitta district rising close to or crossing danger levels.
