Central universities will conduct a common entrance test in July for admissions to UG programs; class 12 marks will not be considered

CUET 2022

UGC chairman M Jagadesh Kumar announced on Monday that the first-ever mandatory common entrance test for admission to all 45 Central universities will be held in the first week of July.

According to him, the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) will be a computerized test administered by the National Testing Agency (NTA), which will announce the test pattern on Tuesday. It is expected that applicants will be able to submit their applications during the first week of April.

Effectively, this means that the performance in the Class 12 Board examination will no longer be a factor in admissions to Central universities. Therefore, Delhi University’s sky-high cut-off marks are now a thing of the past. Seven of the DU colleges asked for 100 percent marks in the first list for admission to a total of ten programs.

Board marks were not preferred for admission due to the “diversity” of evaluation methods. An official who spoke on condition of anonymity said that some boards are more generous with marking, providing their students with an unfair advantage.

Following CUET, students will be admitted to each university based on a merit list prepared by NTA, and there will be no common counseling.

Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jamia Millia Islamia and Indira Gandhi National Open University in Delhi, and Aligarh Muslim University and Banaras Hindu University in Uttar Pradesh are among the well-known Central universities that will now be included in CUET.

The CUET 2022 will be offered in 13 languages, namely Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Urdu, Assamese, Bengali, Punjabi, Odia and English.

There will be two shifts for the exam. Participants will take Section I during the first shift (languages), two chosen domain subjects and the general test. The second shift will consist of the other four domain subjects, as well as an additional language test, if desired.

The CUET is not required for international students, but their admissions will be handled on a supernumerary basis.
