According to the University Grants Commission, the National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct the Common University Entrance Test – CUET for admission to undergraduate programmes in all UGC-funded central universities from the academic session 2022–23. The exam will take place in July and will be conducted in 13 languages, namely Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Urdu, Assamese, Bengali, Punjabi, Odia, and English by the National Testing Agency. As per the public notice by UGC, the CUET may also be adopted by the state/private/deemed to be universities.
The CUET (Common University Entrance Test) is going to be a computer-based test. The application window for the examination will open in the first week of April. The chairman of UGC, Mr. M. Jagadesh Kumar, informed that the CUET syllabus would be aligned with the NCERT Class 12 syllabus. According to Kumar, admission to undergraduate programmes in these universities would therefore be completely dependent on the CUET score. With Class 12 board results having no relevance, he argued, colleges can consider the results of the board exam as a test eligibility criterion.
The Commission has decided that the 45 central universities must implement CUET for undergraduate admissions, while institutions will have the option of using CUET results for postgraduate applications. The admission exam will be divided into three sections and performed in two shifts. The test date, as well as other related information in a detailed structure for CUET UG, will be available on the NTA website at https://nta.ac.in.
