The COMEDK UGET exam was successfully conducted on August 19, and the image claiming that 57 students who attended it died of COVID-19 is fake.
News18 has not published any article claiming the same on any platform.
The exam admit-cards were released on its official website, and the exam took place in two shifts. The first shift was from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and the second shift was from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The provisional answer key of the test was released on August 23, 2020.
