CUET 2022

From the 2022-23 academic session, a common entrance test is to be implemented across central universities in India for admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate courses, marking a departure from the current predominant pattern of screening based on class 12 marks.

The UGC has been keen on bringing more central universities under the ambit of the CUET ever since the National Education Policy, 2020 advocated this.

The test will cover sciences, humanities, languages, arts, and vocational subjects, and is likely to be held at least once an year.

Reasons & Benefits of Conducting CUET Exam 

The push for a common entrance test comes at a time when unrealistic cutoffs for admission to premier institutions like Delhi University have underlined the need for alternatives. The UGC hopes it will create a level playing field for everyone.

It was observed that there is huge competition in top universities with high cut-off marks, so the exam was introduced to reduce the high cut-off standards for entering these prestigious colleges.

The exam is a centralized test for top universities like Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University, Central University of Punjab, and Jawaharlal Nehru University.

Being a centralized test, students can focus on a single aptitude test instead of appearing for multiple entrance tests to get admission to these top universities.
