SLET 2022 Postponed Due to Assembly Elections, Check New Exam Date

The State Level Eligibility Test (SLET) Commission, Assam (NE Region) has issued an important notice regarding the date of the SLET 2022 exam. State (SLET) has been postponed to March 2022, due to upcoming assembly elections. Previously, the state eligibility test was scheduled to take place on February 27, 2022. However, a clash between the eligibility tests and the election is a surefire recipe for chaos, affecting the performance of candidates who have spent months prepare for this eligibility test.

What was the official advice?

The SLET Commission, Assam has issued an important notice on its official portal sletne.org. According to the official notice –

Looking at the new exam date, it is clear that the SLET 2022 exam has been delayed for 9-10 days, i.e. from February 27 in the initial phase to March 06, 2022. For candidates, instead of an unavoidable delay, applicants may consider this to be additional preparation time to pass the eligibility test.

Assembly elections in Manipur

According to the official information, the 2022 Legislative Assembly elections in Manipur are scheduled to start from 27th February 2022 and will run till 03rd March 2022. Thereafter the votes will be counted and the results will be announced on 10th March 2022. Surprisingly, however, the new exam date falls within the election calendar. It is therefore puzzling that the SLET commission has not decided on a date after March 10, 2022. There is, however, a plausible explanation for this.

Elections start on February 27, 2022, so there is bound to be chaos on the first day. As the days go by, the elections can go smoothly and therefore will not affect the conduct of the examination. Also, the counting of votes and the announcement of the results are not as elaborate as the actual polls. Therefore, instead of causing a delay of 14 to 15 days, the commission decided on March 06, 2022 as the ideal date for the conduct of SLET 2022.
