Reasons & Benefits of Conducting CUET Exam

  • The push for a common entrance test comes at a time when unrealistic cutoffsfor 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 testinstead of appearing for multiple entrance tests to get admission to these top universities.

Ace the Syllabus

Understanding your strengths and weaknesses

Time Management

Time is very precious and you should spend it very judiciously. Time management is a very critical step toward success in CUET.

Revise and Practice

The practice checks your preparedness for the exam and accustoms you to the possible type of questions that you can expect in the exam. You can do this best by solving practice sets, going through the sample question papers, and appearing for mock tests. This aspect will also enable you to manage time during the actual exam.
